Beyond the pure cost of an attack on your organization, illegal eavesdropping can lead to compromised trade secrets, lost business opportunities and competitors gaining an upper hand. Fortunately, regular unscheduled countermeasure sweeps of your workplace can prevent these debilitating business outcomes.

Kimmons Investigative Services uses top-of-the-line de-bugging technologies to conduct countermeasure sweeps of spaces ranging from private offices and conference rooms to large hotels and conference centers – anywhere one can eavesdrop with a listening or video device. Our technicians receive advance training from Jarvis International Countermeasures Academy in Tulsa Oklahoma, REI in Tennessee and other venues. Kimmons Investigative Services uses the most advanced countermeasures equipment available, including the Oscor spectrum analyzer.

Experts estimate that less than 5% of firms offering TSCM (countermeasures) services, have the proper equipment and training needed to do the job.

These sweeps locate and authenticate radio frequency transmitters, carrier current transmitters, and infrared transmitters, hard-wired and wireless video cameras. Telephones and telephone lines also are tested.

The most cost-effective way to conduct counter-surveillance is before an attack occurs. Plus, awareness of regular unscheduled security sweeps among your employees usually discourages bugs from being installed in the first place.

Our counter-surveillance team is available to visit with you and conduct a demonstration of our technologies, right in your office. To schedule an appointment, contact us at 281-679-0070 or via email at rob@kimmonsinv.com.
