Off-site bug sweeps are a vital part of any business's security protocol. By having an experienced and qualified team sweep the meeting room for any and all devices, you can ensure that your meeting is safe and secure.

Competitive intelligence is a legal means of obtaining information and using knowledge about the competitive environment. However, off-site meetings are far more open to attack than normal offices, meeting rooms, and event venues. Business competitors often learn of major events ahead of time and can use the circumstances to their benefit.

It is essential to have an off-site bug sweep before any important meeting. This will ensure that your meeting is conducted in a secure environment and that your competitors cannot take advantage of you. An experienced and qualified team can clear the meeting room of all different devices, ensuring the privacy of your meeting.

Off-site meetings are far more open to attack than normal office and meeting rooms and event venues. Before the event, there is no control over the security of the meeting rooms, that are often left unlocked. Business competitors often learn of major events ahead of time and can use the circumstances to their benefit.
This goes far beyond competitive intelligence, a legal means of obtaining information and using knowledge about the competitive environment. 

Why are Off-Site Bug Sweeps Important?

Off-site bug sweeps are important for a number of reasons.

  1. Off-site meetings are often more open to attack than normal offices and meeting rooms. Business competitors often learn of major events ahead of time and can use the circumstances to their advantage.
  2. Off-site meeting rooms are often left unlocked before the event. This leaves the room open to attack from unauthorized individuals who can access sensitive information or plant eavesdropping devices.
  3. Off-site event venues are often not as well protected as normal offices or meeting rooms. This leaves the event vulnerable to attack from business competitors or individuals who may want to disrupt the proceedings or steal sensitive information.
  4. Off-site meetings and events often involve many people who may not be familiar with the security procedures in place. This makes it easier for individuals with malicious intent to plant eavesdropping devices or steal sensitive information.
  5. Off-site meetings and events can be very costly for businesses. This makes them a prime target for business competitors who may want to steal sensitive information or disrupt the proceedings.

Off-site meetings offer a more relaxed environment which could lead opponents to let down their guard more than a formal office meeting where people are on alert because they are in their place of work. The relaxed setting might also give opponents more opportunity to chat openly about confidential matters without realizing that they could be overheard by people who should not have access to that information.

To mitigate this risk, it is important to have a professional bug sweep conducted before any off-site meetings to ensure that no listening devices have been planted in the room.

What Our Clients Say

My company was being spied on by competitors. I knew what they were looking for from outside sources but I did not know how they were going about it. I hired COMSCAN to find out how and where the leaks were originating. Hiring them was a wise decision. Stephen was thorough and knowledgeable.  After discovering a major problem area he continued on in a tenacious manner and found another source of the information leaks. He also provided me with some useful recommendations after he finished.

Thank you so much for taking on our assignment on such short notice. We greatly appreciate your professionalism and the manner in which you handled our requests while you worked!
