Debugging Investigations

Debugging is another term for Bug Sweeps, and is a specific task involved in Surveillance Detection under the Technical Surveillance Countermeasures practices.

In computer talk, debugging is the practice of searching and analyzing software and hardware packages for defects, or ‘bugs,’ to ensure that the electronics perform properly. In this context, debugging is a ‘search and neutralize’ process for electronic transmitters. Bugs of all shapes and sizes can be planted easily in electronic communication devices, including cellular and land-line phones, as well as computers. Bugs may also be in the form of GPS trackers planted on vehicles or in articles of clothing, for example. At ICS, our technicians are knowledgeable about the entire spectrum of bugging devices and practices, and we can sweep your home or office quickly and efficiently to make sure that your secrets are not being transmitted to eavesdroppers. Call us immediately for a free consultation before it is too late!

Debugging Investigations Information:

  • Common telephone tapping devices:
    • Acoustic Bugs: the simplest listening device, these are not electronic devices. Acoustic bugs allow one to eavesdrop using a drinking glass, stethoscope, rubber tubes, or tape recorders in close proximity to the person speaking.
    • Ultrasonic or VLF Bug: these devices convert sound into an audio signal which cannot be heard by human ears, then intercept that sound wave and convert it back to audible frequencies to be recorded and listened to on the eavesdroppers’ hardware
    • Radio Frequency Bug: these devices are the most common, using a transmitter to capture sounds and transport the audio signal to another location
    • Optical Bug: these devices convert sounds into an optical pulse that can be transmitted and recorded
  • Techniques employed by ICS:

Are You In Need?

Certain industries are more prone to espionage in the form of bugging, and the higher profile you are and the more access you have to valuable people and information, the more likely you are to be a target. Bugs can be planted quickly and easily, and it takes someone with a special skill set and the proper equipment to detect them. At ICS, we use the latest technological builds to detect even the most advanced bugs and listening devices, and our technicians are discreet and efficient.
