Government and Corporate Services
While businesses and organizations are at a higher risk today of economic espionage, many do not include proper TSCM/counter surveillance services as part of their overall security posture.
Larger businesses and organizations are not immune to hype and misinformation, and often involve higher threat levels and complex target environments. While there are a variety of TSCM service providers with varying degrees of experience and training, many organizations do not have sufficient knowledge of TSCM services. This can make the process of contracting a provider and ensuring proper services are performed very difficult.
Waypoint Counter Surveillance takes the uncertainty out of the process providing highly trained TSCM Specialists with extensive and verifiable technical security, operational security, cybersecurity and intelligence-related backgrounds with federal government and law enforcement agencies, utilizing the most sophisticated electronic equipment resources available. Our services include teams of highly skilled TSCM operators which vary in number depending on individual requirements, offering levels of customization and capability for assignments of any size, complexity or threat level both locally and across Canada.
The diverse experience of our TSCM Specialists which includes offensive and defensive technical intelligence operations, provides a level of experience only attainable with such specialized training and distinct working backgrounds. In addition, our many years of practical experience working in large business environments provides us with a unique understanding of corporate culture, and the challenges faced by business executives and management. We create workable counter-surveillance strategies based on the requirements and within the parameters outlined by any organization.

Advanced Distant Operations Services:
Organizations with locations requiring long-distance travel nationally or internationally have an even more difficult task for implementing TSCM services or programs. While continuity of service may be preferable, especially when dealing with security measures, the reality is that utilizing a single TSCM service provider may not always be a practical solution or in the best interests of the customer due to logistics, expenses involved, operator scheduling difficulties, legal issues and equipment restrictions between countries as well as for situations or emergencies where limited time is a key factor.
These types of situations should never be treated as an afterthought. Our TSCM consulting services were designed to deal with situations where the use of a single operator would adversely affect or put the security posture of an organization at risk, allowing us to provide solutions that put the best interests of our clients first. In these instances, only top professional operators with the highest levels of experience and training are utilized and we do not collect any fee or type of compensation from any operator whose services are contracted which allows us to be completely objective in our recommendations and decisions eliminating any conflict of interest issues. Honesty and integrity are key factors of our operating policy and in creating trust with all of our clients.
Our consulting services provide solutions for assignments that could not otherwise be addressed while providing full continuity for all technical security programs. In addition, we provide centralized billing and as with all of our TSCM services, non-disclosure protocol is always in effect.
