Why Utilize ETS for International Technical Surveillance Sweeps and Counter Measures

There are a multitude of private security companies that offer counter surveillance services and bug sweeps. The majority of these simply believe that carrying out technical checks with ‘anti-bug’ devices and having good technical equipment is enough. There is a serious misunderstanding of this industry, and this is leading to clients regularly receiving a service that falls short, and often receing the service from poorly trained teams with zero, or minimal operational experience. 

To counter high level technical surveillance requires a team with extensive knowledge of the Modus Operandi of Intelligence teams, an understanding of the equipment, and the constant imporvements of such technology, and the capability to do physical as well as technical searches. This must all be complemented by a thorough assessment of practices and procedures. 

Please note: Many companies purport to be counter surveillance and technical surveillance experts. The majority of whom provide very little information on the background and experience of their personnel. ETS strongly advises those searching for this service do their research and check the backgrounds of the personnel to be utilized. ETS only uses highly experienced ex British government and UKSF surveillance specialists.
