The above are some of the various
COVERT DIGITAL VIDEO and AUDIO RECORDING DEVICES that
FSG (and just about anyone else) is able to supply. In fact,
anyone can go on the internet, and purchase any of the devices
depicted above for as little as R 800.00 - R 2 000.00. Of
significance is that the cost of such devices makes them
disposable; affordable for once-off use. All these items are battery operated and can store between 2 and 10
hours of video and audio on micro, removable, memory cards that work on
most media players. Their value is that these
devices can blend into just about any environment; their electronic surveillance components
can be built into almost anything.
These represent a fraction of what we regard, in today's
technologically evolved world, as TECHNOLOGICALLY SIMPLE covert electronic audio and video monitoring devices. Variations of
similar devices also have built-in radio transmitters, so that recorded
images and communication can be monitored in real-time from a remote
location. How "remote" depends on the strength of the radio transmitters
built into them and/or the number of remote radio signal receivers and
boosters installed between the
location of the room/telephone line being monitored, and the remote location used for
real-time monitoring. It can also get a lot more complicated than this
when you add the likes of systems integration and computer hackers to
the mix, which is too complex to explain here.
The most common application of FSG's electronics services are
two-fold; the sale and installation of CCTV SYSTEMS and the sale
and installation of COVERT DIGITAL TELEPHONE LINE RECORDERS, which
entities instruct FSG to install to monitor the telephone communications
of employees who are suspected of wrongdoing.
There are several issues to be noted:
- Technology development has made the installation and use of covert electronic
audio and video eavesdropping easy. No special skill is required.
- Technology development has made counter-electronic
surveillance complex, for a number of reasons:
- If such devices are not active (ie. they have no power),
they cannot be detected with even the most sophisticated
counter-electronic surveillance detection equipment. The
implication is that the only way to find them is a physical
serach - but then you have to know what to look for.
- If the device is of the type that transmits video and
audio to a remote location for real-time monitoring, the
only reliable manner
to defeat them is to install a signal jamming device in the room
in which sensitive communication is taking place. But then you
need to know what form of transmission is being used to
comprehensively manage the risk.
- If the device is of a type that does not transmit the video
and audio for real-time monitoring, the only reliable manner
to defeat them is to install some form of "white noise"
generator in the room where sensitive communication is taking
- Covert electronic surveillance devices and electronic
counter-covert electronic surveillance devices live in a constant
race to defeat each other. If a device can be built to defeat a
covert electronic surveillance device, a new covert surveillance
device can be built that will defeat the technology of
counter-covert electronic surveillance devices.
- The only thing standing between successful and unsuccessful
covert electronic surveillance is the amount of money that those
needing to covertly survey an environment are prepared to spend. And
there is a vast difference between the technology that is available
to anyone when compared with the technology that is available to
government/state intelligence agencies/specialist private electronic
surveillance intelligence service providers.
- The few items depicted above is a tiny sample of what is
available. Covert TRACKING DEVICES
(that can be covertly attached to Anything), CELLPHONE CLONING
SOFTWARE and MONITORING DEVICES, COVERT COMPUTER MONITORING SOFTWARE
and DEVICES, TELEPHONE COMMUNICATION and EMAIL INTERCEPTION DEVICES,
PARABOLIC MICROPHONES and IMAGING DEVICES that can literally see and
hear through most physical obstacles are other categories of
covert surveillance risks to be considered.
- The implication is that to defeat covert
electronic monitoring requires a comprehensive assessment of the
risk of such activity. It is this risk assessment that informs the
counter-covert electronic surveillance expert to determine what kind
of technology might be used, and counter-surveillance measures can
be applied accordingly.
The subject of risk management-related electronics is vast and
complex and cannot adequately be addressed in a single page of a
website. Suffice it to say that FSG:
- Can supply a vast array of such devices.
- Can perform covert surveillance risk assessments and design and
implement covert surveillance risk management programs.
