How They Get in to Plant Bugs

There are many ways someone can enter your offices to plant bugs and other electronic surveillance devices. This is just one example. Alerting our clients to these vulnerabilities is just part of our counterespionage service.

Bug in the Office

Bugging an office or a boardroom, there’s not much difference. See how easily your office could be bugged and your intellectual property put at risk.

Who is that man?

An employee coming to work?
A vendor attending a proposal meeting?
Is he here to repair something?

To most people those questions don’t even come to mind. If he can produce credentials that seem appropriate for a legitimate visit – repair the copier, install a new phone, or delivering your new chair – he will never raise any suspicion.

Unfortunately, this now legitimate visitor, who is probably very nice too, will plant three electronic eavesdropping devices, in strategic areas, before he leaves. It will only take him seconds. You will never see it happen. You will never know – until it’s too late.
.

This is only one industrial espionage spy trick. There are hundreds more.

That’s why, savvy corporations, government agencies and organizations conduct periodic Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) bug sweeps. Today’s electronic “bugs” are increasingly smaller and easier to drop into innocuous spaces to gather information – your sensitive information.

TSCM is used by hundreds of organizations to clear their sensitive areas of bugging, wiretapping and devices used to attack computers and networks . Your company should use TSCM too. At Murray Associates, electronic eavesdropping detection is our specialty.

Murray Associates conducts an eavesdropping detection audit and provides a debriefing for James Carville and Mary Matalin.
(Executive Producers: George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh, 4:14)

Synopsis:

As the show opens, the offices of Bergstrom Lowell are being searched for listening devices.

James Carville and Mary Matalin talk to Kevin D. Murray, a consultant, about increasing their “perimeter security.” He points out that none of the offices have locks on the doors, and suggests shredding their garbage and installing a noise masking system to thwart eavesdroppers. When Matalin wonders if they’re just being paranoid, Murray tells them to trust their instincts if they feel something is wrong.

Apparently, all these precautions are in response to suspicions about the real-life leak to columnist Robert Novak of the name of a CIA operative.
