SURGE IN COUNTERMEASURES SERVICES
Compiled By Ralph D. Thomas
Recent trend statics show that there has been a massive surge in demand for counter surveillance sweeping services. The opportunity in countermeasures and counter intelligence has never been greater. There has been a major surge in demand for information security services in the last few years and it's being reported as a major trend almost everywhere. Countermeasures, as a professional service; is generally thought of in the private sector as two types:
Domestic countermeasures is expanding in demand for several reasons. First, the dovirce rate has soared. In fact, four in five marriages end in divorce in the United States. There has always been a need and huge demand for counter surveillance services in such situtations. Secondly, there are more people with more money in the United States now than ever before. When the income levels are up, there is a greater need for information protection in a domestic situtation. Thirdly, there is a massive home business movement in which massive numbers of people are starting businesses out of their home. Many of these businesses are almost one hundred precent information driven which has created even wider demand for countermeasures services. Domestic counter surveillance jobs usually bring in between $500.00 and $1,500.00 per job.

|REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS||$75.00|
|TOTAL JOB REVENUE||$975.00|
In 1997, the US Department Of State; in a study of economic losses from corporate espionage and illegal eavesdropping revealed that American firms lost 8,160 million dollars because of it. The American economy is almost totally dirven by information these days and businesses have worken up to the fact that countermeasures and information security is a most for survival.
The high tech office technology magazine, Modern Office Technology; recently reported the following as standard fees for a countermeasures sweep:
|REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS||125.00|
|TOTAL JOB REVENUE||$2,863.00|
Private investigative agencies and security agencies that have been offering countermeasures services for a number of years are reporting a huge surge in business. Many are reporting three or four times more demand for services than was present only a few years ago. You can easily see that with just a couple of domestic sweep assigments per month and a couple of business sweep assigments per month, you could easily be taking between $5,000 and $10,000 per month in revenue and some services are doing much better than that.

The situation in the United States in regards to countermeasures is a situation in which there is a shortage of people who can offer the level of countermeasures services needed and a huge demand for them. Although there are many services which offer extremely low end countermeasures services, business and industry needs a level above these types of services.The CPM-700 is designed to meet the countermeaures professional's needs.
