Charlotte’s Most Trusted Technical Surveillance & Countermeasure Services

As technology evolves and our society becomes more reliant upon data and data collection, the threat of being a target of technical surveillance becomes a very real concern for certain individuals. Businesses are becoming increasingly competitive, making industrial espionage a very real possibility in densely populated metropolitan areas where executives tend to live and work. Domestic disputes around infidelity and child-custody often devolve into he-said, she-said impasses, and surveillance is often used in these cases to show wrongdoing of one type or another. So while some might think that being a target for technical surveillance is akin to spy novels and corporate espionage thrillers, for others it’s an extremely real and frightening possibility.

What Countermeasures Can Be Used for Technical Surveillance?

Regardless of why you think you might be under surveillance, Barefoot PI believes that everyone should be able to have peace of mind that their home, workplace, and vehicle are safe and uncompromised by listening devices or video recording equipment. Finding help can be tricky though, especially in North Carolina, which requires a license to perform debugging services. But for more than 25 years, Barefoot Professional Investigations has been a licensed provider of not only debugging services but also provide countermeasures to electronic surveillance.   

Signs That You’re Being Surveilled

While devices have become increasingly advanced, that doesn’t mean those who might be surveilling you are using top-end devices. Some basic methods for checking your space include:

  • Listen for high-pitched humming sounds in spaces where no electronics device should be in operation.
  • New hotspots or networks detected by your router that you don’t recognize.
  • Look for new or out-of-place, including wiring or plugs.
  • Identify strange behavior on your digital devices.
