It may seem like something out of a movie, but your office may actually be bugged. If there is information that someone can obtain that they may be able to profit off of, your odds of having a bugged office are substantially higher. Under these circumstances, you should consider hiring a company that specializes in surveillance countermeasure services, especially if you notice warning signs of your office being bugged.
You'll not only need to worry about your office but beware of places you'd not even think of. The bathroom and the break room may also be places where a listening device or even a surveillance camera has been placed to spy.
Pay Attention to Your Surroundings
The best way to avoid being bugged is to look around your room. There might be something out-of-place that you've never noticed before. If you pay attention to your surroundings often, you'll become accustomed to what is normal and what might be tampered with.
Listen for Strange Sounds
You may notice strange sounds or may experience a sudden volume change when listening on your phone. This usually only occurs with amateur eavesdroppers who are performing a literal wiretap. However, there are ways to listen in on phone conversations that produce no audible changes.
Expect Cameras Anywhere
You might be surprised that a camera is hidden in your office. Hidden cameras can be so small that they can be hidden almost anywhere. You may find a hidden camera in an unexpected location such as a potted plant or a tissue box.
Look for Anomalies
Televisions can behave strangely in the presence of a surveillance device. You might experience static on certain channels, for example. Your interior walls and ceiling might now be discolored. This may be a location where a surveillance device was implanted.
Beware of Unscheduled Repairs
If repairs are being performed in your office, make sure that they were scheduled properly. If you were not expecting repairs to be performed, be skeptical. Repairs are a perfect opportunity for an eavesdropper to place a surveillance device in a wall or ceiling.
Because it's very difficult to find surveillance devices, it's best that you hire professionals to hunt for and remove surveillance devices. If you're not trained in how to locate and remove them, a professional eavesdropper will figure out a way to conceal a surveillance device from you in a place you least expect it.
