Share Article

An essential new book examines the escalating security and privacy threats from spy cameras, audio bugs, telephone bugs, GPS trackers, GSM listening devices, surveillance software, smart-phone compromises and other high-tech technologies that are actively marketed to civilians. Modern security professionals must grasp the magnitude of these emerging threats, how they are identified and the counter-measures by which they are neutralized.

Eavesdropping, Surveillance And Espionage: Threats, Techniques and Countermeasures is a comprehensive introduction to TSCM specifically for law enforcement, private investigators, homeland security, key military personnel, foreign service and diplomatic staff, intelligence operatives, private security contractors, TSA, security advisors and other security professionals in the private and public sectors.

Authored by Norbert Zaenglein, author of Disk Detective, Secret Software and the Covert Bug Book, the new TSCM book fills a much needed gap in security awareness related to civilian surveillance capabilities, a development that impacts military, government, diplomatic venues, homeland security, corporations, businesses and the general public.

The essential new security manual explains how mass production of sophisticated surveillance technology pattered after law-enforcement and intelligence-grade spy devices has marshaled the once secretive spy trade into civilian circles with far-reaching implications and consequences.

“Terrorists, for example, can conduct extensive pre-operational surveillance of a target area without alerting security personnel,” Zaenglein said, “there is a need for additional security awareness in this area.” Civilian surveillance technology also makes it easy for amateur spies to target corporate trade secrets, proprietary data as well as classified government and military information.

Civilians, too, are falling victim to the illegal use of consumer surveillance technology including spy cams disguised as everyday household objects that seamlessly blend into private environments. Such spy cams subject unsuspecting victims to video molestation, a practice fueled by strong demand for voyeuristic imagery.    

Civilian surveillance technology is a multi-billion dollar business fueled by marketing efforts that places sophisticated spy devices into the hands of civilians who are deploying covert technology on an unprecedented scale. While the lawful use of civilian surveillance technology can be a powerful deterrent to crime and catch crooks in the act, the growing use of illegal surveillance by the general public has enormous consequences for today’s society.

Eavesdropping, Surveillance And Espionage: Threats, Techniques and Countermeasures is a ground-breaking TSCM manual that offers an unprecedented look into the shadowy world of civilian surveillance and modern counter-measure principles and techniques. Understanding the implications of illegal surveillance and counter-surveillance is crucial for today’s security professional.
