What should be inspected?

Simple answer...
Any place where sensitive information can be heard, seen, or intercepted.

Our additional advice...
Resist the following thought, “The place is bugged; check every last inch.”

Although normal and instinctive, this approach does not use our talents efficiently, is not cost-effective, and is usually not necessary.

Create a priority list.
Let us start with the most sensitive areas.

There is a point where you will say, “If they have not attacked these areas, then the rest of the areas are probably safe.”With this approach, you will not overspend, and you can move quickly to address any other possible reasons for your concern.

Include the following items when constructing your list...

Sensitive areas.

Adjacent areas, if sounds from sensitive areas can be heard there too.

All communications equipment within both types of areas.
(phones, speakerphones, video teleconferencing, faxes, modems, LANs, etc.)

Communications equipment used for sensitive matters but located elsewhere.

Other equipment which handles sensitive printed materials.
(photocopiers, scanners, A/V equipment, etc.)

Telephone rooms, wire closets, and junction boxes.

Transportation vehicles. (cars, planes, boats)

Off-site meeting locations.

Corporate apartments or suites.

Executives' home offices.

Other items or areas unique to your business or agency.

Rules of thumb...

In a sensitive area, both the room and all communications equipment must be inspected.

In an adjacent area, both the area and all communications equipment should be inspected.

Upon rare occasion, communications items can be inspected without inspecting the areas. The reverse is never true.

Stop by the next logical questions...

"How does the inspection process work?"
"What is the cost?"
