Welcome to our interim page being hosted by Ti2 Agency, Inc.
Ti2 DV-TSCM, Inc. is a non-profit corporation registered in Wisconsin. Ti2 DV-TSCM, Inc. is a non-profit and shall operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or the corresponding section of any future Federal tax code. Illustrates Ti2 DV-TSCM Inc.'s purpose is to provide testing for public safety. We conduct Technical Security Counter Measures (TSCM) for domestic violence victims who are distressed or poor.
We chose to name our group for Christine Belford because of the similarities her matter shares with so many other victims of cyberstalking. Belford's death showed the lengths cyberstalkers could take to victimize their prey.
TSCM includes locating hidden surveillance devices such as listening microphones, recorders, cameras, video recording devices, and GPS tracking devices placed in domestic violence victims' residences or on their personal property. These surveillance devices are inexpensive but high quality (see videos below). Finding these devices requires expensive industrial-grade (TSCM) equipment only sold to government agencies, law enforcement, and corporate security. As a result, most people can not buy high-quality counter-surveillance equipment even if they can afford it.
"Social media harassment and the use of technology such as hidden cameras and GPS tracking is recorded in up to three-quarters of domestic abuse cases, police and charities have said." Tech plays a part in 72% of domestic abuse cases. (2020, February 3). Times [London, England], 18. https://link.gale.com/apps/doc/A613058135/AONE?u=uphoenix&sid=ebsco&xid=d3bf16a9
Our Mission is to promote domestic victim's peace of mind, power, and control by helping them feel comforted in knowing their privacy is not violated. We offer this service at NO FINANCIAL COST to domestic victims. We combat Intimate Partner Cyberstalking (IPC).
"IPC is defined as the use of the Internet and other information and communication technologies to repeatedly monitor, threaten, and harass a current or former romantic partner, causing them to feel afraid, threatened, harassed, and distressed." Reiss, D. M., Curbow, B. A., & Wang, M. Q. (2022). Young Adults' Perceptions of Intimate Partner Cyberstalking: Behaviors, Severity, and Associations with Depressive Symptoms and Social Isolation. Sexuality & Culture, 26(1), 176–203. https://doi.org/10.1007/s12119-021-09885-y
According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, "One common form of technology-facilitated stalking is spying and eavesdropping. This method is popular among perpetrators because it is inexpensive and easily hidden." https://nnedv.org/latest_update/technology-facilitated-stalking/
At the 3rd International Security Symposium, 2020 - TSCM - Modern Eavesdropping Threats Presentation, the Counter-Surveillance Equipment Manufacturer REI presented how easy and inexpensive it is to obtain highly sophisticated spy gear. The presenter also explained why corporations are reluctant to report when they find these devices at their facilities. They fear the negative PR, which can negatively affect their reputation and operations https://youtu.be/KFrZ6SPMZNo . If reporting on these activities by major corporations is so low compared to reality, imagine how a domestic victim might feel and how prevalent this criminal behavior is. If companies are embarrassed to make their discoveries known, it is not difficult to understand the psychological damage done to victims of domestic stalking.
"Battered women who were relentlessly stalked by an intimate partner have reported greater depression and post-traumatic stress compared to women who were infrequently stalked (Mechanic et al., ). Victims of severe IPC may experience similar adverse psychological and social health states." Mechanic MB, Uhlmansiek MH, Weaver TL, Resick PA. The impact of severe stalking experienced by acutely battered women: An examination of violence, psychological symptoms, and strategic responding. Violence and Victims. 2000; 15; 4: 443-458. 10.1891/0886-6708.15.4.443
"Victims of stalking for longer than two weeks have been more likely to relocate their residence, change their phone number, reduce social outings, and experience greater psychological morbidity compared to those who reported stalking for two weeks or less." Purcell, R., Pathé, M., & Mullen, P. (2004). Editorial: When do repeated intrusions become stalking? Journal
of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology, 15(4), 571–583. https://doi.org/10.1080/14789940412331313368
