Formal TSCM training has come from courses taught by former military and federal law enforcement personnel as well as private sources. All investigators hold California Private Investigator Licenses, and we are insured.
MICROSEARCH utilizes the same instruments and equipment as government TSCM teams. Our arsenal includes computer controlled radio frequency spectrum analysis, nonlinear junction detector (This device locates electronic components in surveillance devices), X-Ray, and thermal imaging. Instruments and equipment are upgraded continuously. Most instruments are less than two years old.
MICROSEARCH TSCM surveys include a comprehensive report of the activities and findings, and include recommendations for improving information security. The recommendations for improvement are objective because we are not affiliated with any security product or service providers. The survey also helps satisfy the obligation to protect proprietary data as required by the Economic Espionage Act of 1996.
