Nobody trusts anybody


Do you think they are spying on your company? Well, then this article is for you. Let's talk about "electronic sweeps", a useful way to eliminate suspicions of espionage. But what is actually the electronic sweep? In short, it is the execution of inspections and searches in order to detect, locate and (if necessary) eliminate spy devices. It is the most important security countermeasure since it looks for active espionage instruments, intrusive systems that capture information, eavesdropping and telephone punctures. It can be applied as a preventive measure or as a secondary measure when there is a suspicion of information leakage.

 The truth is that our society is increasingly transgressive when it comes to our privacy since hundreds of companies that offer spy equipment accessible to all or type of people are observed. Therefore, it is essential to hire qualified personnel with adequate technical equipment, when there is suspicion about a possible espionage case, be it the simplest or the most complex. The professionals who are responsible for these sweeps are usually private detectives, among others, hired to detect video and / or audio transmissions, cameras, hidden microphones and other systems susceptible to espionage, since detailed knowledge is essential for the detection of this equipment as the means of espionage and the places where to install them.

 The electronic sweeps include from a physical record of the facilities to the analysis of the origin of eventual recordings and location of these devices. In addition, you can also do the tracking of microphones in vehicles or locate hidden GPS systems. It is often possible to install countermeasure equipment, such as equipment that generates noise and prevents understanding and/or recording conversations. 

The causes for which electronic sweeps are made are diverse, but the main ones are information leaks, dishonest workers, leaks to the press and patent registration. 


Espionage is booming so the precautions of large companies are increasingly justified, taking measures to prevent it.
