12th Annual CTSC | TSCM "Bug-Off"

Our TSCM competitive "Bug-Off" is an excellent way to network and learn from other like-minded professional TSCM operators while participating in a mildly entertaining and competitive practical component of the conference agenda.

Our previous competitive "Bug-Off" events were an outstanding success and provided an excellent opportunity for a light-hearted competitive sprit during the conference.

The “Bug-off” is open to all conference participants who wish to participate for a chance to win a host of prizes and perhaps most importantly, bragging rights.

The individual that has identified accurately the most technical threats will be deemed the 1st prize winner, and so with the 2nd and 3rd prizes.

Seasoned TSCM technical operators and those who are new to the Technical Security (TSEC) industry will utilize whatever equipment they normally use on the job or may utilize the various supplied equipment resources available on-site.

This event gives attending equipment manufacturers an opportunity to get their respective products into the hands of potential customers.

The individual will be provided with a time based assignment to be completed and submitted to the conference committee for evaluation.

Prizes, Awards, Peer Recognition, and Bragging Rights are just a few of the benefits for participants of our 12th annual TSCM “Bug-off”.

The TSB "Office of Evil Intent" is eagerly looking forward to our 12th annual competitive "Bug-off" and the brave few that are prepared to accept the ultimate challenge.

As usual the "Office of Evil Intent" (aka Paul D Turner) will be designing a challenging experience for all those who dare to choose to participant in this year's competitive event.

Our "Bug-off" will take on a totally new look this year as it will be conducted within our dedicated special project room consisting of a typical corporate meeting environment.


CTSC 2017 "Bug-Off" Prizes

CTSC 2017 will award a variety of prizes to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners based on a combination of each individual participant's actual results in properly detecting and identifying a host of Technical Surveillance Devices (TSD) and Technical Security Hazards (TSH) during his / her inspection of the target area.

The results and awards will be announced during the Dinner and Awards event on the evening of the second day of the conference.

All CTSC 2017 registered participants are welcome to sign-up and actively participant in this years event.

We are also pleased to recognize the sponsors of this year's competitive "Bug-Off" who have donated prizes to make this event a tremendous success.
