As a business owner, you likely prioritize your company’s success over everything else. However, when you notice that confidential information is making its way out from behind closed doors or your competition is aware of developing processes, suspicions may arise. It could be possible that your business was bugged. If you believe someone has used surveillance methods in your office or workplace, you may not know how to proceed. Keep reading to learn more about this process and how you can benefit from a Connecticut corporate & commercial debugging service.
What Is Bugging?
Technical surveillance is an illegal method of spying that some will use to receive information that is not otherwise public knowledge. This is a severe invasion of privacy and can be hard to detect if you don’t know what to look for.
There are many different methods that spies will use to gain knowledge. For example, they may place physical devices in your home, business, or car, as a means to hear business ideas and sensitive information. These include miniature microphones, hidden cameras, and optical devices that utilize lasers, though these are uncommon.
You may also be subjected to cyber security bugging, which includes phone tapping and hacking the data of your mobile device or computer to steal information.
Why Was My Business Bugged?
There are several reasons that someone may have bugged your business. For example, a disgruntled ex-employee may feel spited by their termination. As a result, they go to work for your competition and divulge secrets through unsavory methods like regaining access to the building and placing a device in a conference room.
Similarly, you may find that your competition has stolen information that was only discussed in an email chain. You may be experiencing cyber-spying, which can hack your computer system so a competitor does not need to physically go to your address to get the information they need.
How Does De-Bugging Work?
De-bugging, also called technical surveillance countermeasures, will help identify and locate devices in space. Through sweeping, an experienced private investigator will use technology to help identify any technology in your space. However, they will also physically investigate areas of concern, such as locks and alarms, to ensure all security measures are reviewed.
