The Bug Sweeping Cycle


THE NEED
In today's world of technical developments and accessibility, where information is crucial and eavesdropping and listening devices are easily obtainable, it is evident that almost any organization from government agencies and law enforcement authorities to corporate security officers need to protect their sensitive information in order to operate safely, safeguard their interests and achieve commercial success. These TSCM efforts can be extended to communication security (COMSEC) and information technology security (ITSEC) when applicable.
 
THE SERVICE
As an expert TSCM provider we approach any bug detection assignment methodologically by implementing basic steps that guarantee effective results.
  • The initial step is to execute a visual, electronic and physical examination of the surveyed facility.
  • This is followed by an assessment of the security treats which determines the type of countermeasures required for the specific location;  
  • Then, conduct a thorough electronic analysis of the location and keep it safe.
Choosing the professional equipment is complemented by the professional and proficient approach of trained personnel who understand the eavesdropping potential, the various covert possibilities and vulnerability in a specific environment and how to uncover them. 
Our debugging equipment is designed to detect and deactivate
  • Active and dormant RF & IR transmitters.
  • Telephone eavesdropping devices.
  • Listening devices mounted on electricity wiring.
  • Telephone line analyzer
 
THE EQUIPMENT
YTS implements state-of-the-art equipment for all its sweep and eavesdropping missions. Noteworthy are the following devices by REI:
  • OSCOR GREEN complete integrated Spectrum Analyzer System with built in antenna and analysis software.
This hand-held spectrum analyzer is lightweight for easy mobility and rapid sweep speed and functionality making it the ideal product for detecting sophisticated RF signals in the toughest environments.
Main applications:
  • Site surveys for communication systems (cell towers, MV links, etc…)  
  • RF emission analysis
  • Wireless service providers and installers
  • Security surveys for eavesdropping detection
This non-linear junction evaluator has all the technical and ergonomic advances for being an accurate and user friendly device when searching for contraband or prohibited electronic devices and cell phones.
Main features:
  • Patented frequency hopping functionality
  • Advanced digital signal processing algorithm
  • Circular polarized receive and transmit antenna
  • Features for easy deployment and clear display of the data
TALAN is a comprehensive all-in-one device which combines multiple technologies for accurate detection and analysis of phone and line faults and security breach.
Its functionality covers the entire range of digital, analog, VoIP phone systems and it is capable of performing multiple tests and sophisticated yet thorough line analysis including implementing an automatic switching matrix and storing the tests results for comparison.
 
  • CPM700 Delux is an easy to use portable sweep kit with a number of counter- surveillance tools.
The easy to carry and use mini-kit offers a choice of tools which respond to RF, carrier and IR transmitters is capable of detecting audio leakage, test phones and miscellaneous wires for "hot mics", detect low power transmitters using increased sensitivity active probes and has a 15kHz to 12GHz wide band coverage.
   
THE TRAINING
All the above devices and more are effective and will produce optimized results when used by trained personnel.
YTS keeps abreast of innovations regarding new technologies and features on the market for TSCM, communication and IT safety. Our suppliers support us technically and technologically to maximize the effectiveness of their devices.
In addition to executing the entire debugging cycle, test telephone lines and cyber for viruses and Trojan horses, YTS trains its customer's security officer in order to maintain the security level defined for the site; and the technical personnel how to execute listening and debugging tests.
