Dion International counter-surveillance teams in Edinburgh employ a set of actions that, when followed correctly, reduce the risk of surveillance and help to identify any hostile surveillance teams. Counter surveillance refers to measures that are usually undertaken to prevent surveillance, including covert surveillance. Counter surveillance may include electronic methods such as technical surveillance counter-measures, which is the process of detecting surveillance devices. It can also include covert listening devices, visual surveillance devices, and counter-surveillance software to thwart unwanted cybercrime, such as accessing computing and mobile devices for various nefarious reasons, this includes theft of financial, personal or corporate data.
