TSCM (Technical Surveillance Counter Measures) – The United States Department of Defense defines a TSCM survey as a service provided by qualified personnel to detect the presence of technical surveillance devices and hazards and to identify technical security weaknesses that could aid in the conduct of a technical penetration of the surveyed facility. A TSCM survey will provide a professional evaluation of the facility’s technical security posture and normally will consist of a thorough visual, electronic, and physical examination in and about the surveyed facility. This process is better known as bug sweeps.

Internet exploits have become more and more common with the types of devices that are being brought into our personal and business space.
