Passive vs. Active Privacy Leaks
Most privacy breaches are simple and innocent. An employee’s cubicle is near an executive office, and they unintentionally overhear confidential information. Sound masking alone will treat most of these cases. But often there’s nothing innocent about it, and you don’t have to show up on 007’s radar to be a target. Consider:
- Walls, doors and windows vibrate and can transmit sound
- HVAC ducts can carry sound far from the intended audience
- Telephones can be bugged
Office Privacy Systems offers a wide range of inexpensive treatments for doors, windows, HVAC ducts, and other sound-transmitting materials, as well as more advanced anti-espionage products.
