Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM) "Debugging"

ACS provides an all-encompassing and thorough Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM) “Debugging” that utilises the most advanced modern equipment and technology available in South Africa. Due to the advancement of Global Corporate Competitiveness, there is a growing need amongst Corporate Institutions, especially at Executive Staff levels, to protect all forms of Communication. It is of interest to note that more than 90% of the top listed Corporates in South Africa conduct a REGULAR programme of Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM) “Debugging”. The reason therefore is that Industrial espionage involves activities such as theft of trade secrets, bribery, blackmail, and technological surveillance.

As well as spying on Commercial Organisations, Governments can also be targets of commercial espionage - for example, to determine the terms of a tender for a government contract so that another tenderer can underbid. Industrial espionage is most commonly associated with technology-heavy industries, particularly in the computer and financial sectors.


Espionage takes place in many forms.

All investigations are concluded with a thorough report to the client, which will indicate:

  • Findings of the Investigation
  • Printed Spectrum Analysis of the Target Area’s Electronic Pattern
  • Shortcomings in the Client’s Physical Security Measures which can facilitate Eavesdropping attempts
  • Both Identified and Potential Eavesdropping Threats and Scenarios
