Anti-surveillance Intervention Methodology

The intervention procedure followed by the technicians of the INSIDE Electronic Debugging Division complies with international standard procedures, and ensures effective bug sweeping and the identification of any surveillance devices.

It is recommended to carry out site and phone bug sweeping operations periodically, or at least whenever privacy concerns arise.

After an initial inspection, together with a representative of the Client, performing an external radio frequency scan and a visual check on the outer perimeter, the staff of our Division then begin the debugging, which involves the following operations:

  • Installation of measures to block bugs, GPS trackers and microphone capsules, if necessary;
  • Analysis of frequencies from 10 kHz to 6GHz;
  • Thermal imaging analysis of the spaces and objects to be cleared: thanks to this type of innovative analysis, the location of the most sophisticated bugs that are difficult to detect can be determined;
  • Infrared analysis to detect laser microphones and/or micro-cameras;
  • Inspection of all objects with unusual features;
  • Inspection of PCs and mobile phones;
  • Removal of detected devices, if agreed;
  • Final meeting with delivery of the report on the activities carried out.

The intervention procedure consists of a passive search phase, using the equipment at our disposal, to inadvertently identify any surveillance systems in the area/device inspected, and an active and physical search phase, which allows inaccessible places to be examined to trace any hidden devices.

If requested by the Client, the INSIDE Electronic Debugging Division technicians are able to install security seals on false ceilings, junction boxes, raised floors, etc.
