Counter surveillance is deployed to detect hostile covert surveillance teams, a physical presence on the ground conducted by men or women. History has shown us that before any well-executed attack from terrorists to activists surveillance would have been conducted at some point in the planning phase. Video Surveillance, covert camera systems that are now on the market are easily obtained at a very low cost. These extremely small gadgets can be placed virtually anywhere without it ever being known to the subject and can even be viewed remotely in real-time via a desktop or mobile phone. Listening devices are also available on the market at very low prices which can be placed in a location and be set to voice activation when it is triggered the device will call the stored number providing the surveillance team real-time conversations..
Dion International counter-surveillance teams in Scotland 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.
Counter surveillance is different from surveillance, as the latter does not aim to prevent or reduce surveillance. Counter surveillance is a series of drills that will be conducted by a third party team and Anti surveillance is a series of drills that can be conducted by yourself to deter or identify any surveillance team if carried out correctly.
