Communications Test Set
Communications Systems Analysis
Specialized instrumentation and knowledge is requires for “wiretap detection” and communications systems analysis. This includes: digital, VoIP, traditional (POTS) telephone systems, and Wi-Fi security evaluations.
Some unexpected items included under the Communications Systems Analysis heading include Internet connected devices: doorbells, surveillance cameras, cordless phones, baby monitors, etc.
Unlike outdated test equipment used by less-equipped firms, the latest TSCM technology doesn’t damage digital circuits and devices. Considering the consequential damages of a communications system being blown off-line, this is extremely important.
In addition to inspecting the end equipment (phones, speakerphones, faxes, video teleconferencing systems, etc.), part of the inspection process includes an examination of all wiring for deeply embedded bugs such as wiretaps and transmitters.
We also discreetly seal (at your option) all items we inspect, using custom-made, serialized, nearly invisible security seals. No extra charge. This added level of security makes it easy for you to monitor if a new intrusion or comprise has occurred. Any tampering to these seals is a red flag indicating someone has accessed your communication equipment without authorization.
Subsequent TSCM evaluations include protocols to ensure every previously inspected item still has an unbroken seal. Any damaged or missing seals may indicate tampering. A missing seal may also indicate the object we sealed was replaced with a pre-bugged, identical-looking item. Either condition is a suspicious incident which should be followed-up on by a a competent private investigator.
Tip: Modern communications systems come pre-loaded with features, many of which are eavesdropper-friendly, like auto-answer. Employees know about them, and are not afraid to use them. This is why you need Communications Systems Analysis.
We identify these vulnerabilities during our evaluations, point them out to our clients, and provide protective solutions.
