Manufacturers Losing Intellectual Property to Security Breaches


While this isn't new, spies have been stealing IP since there's been IP to steal, the techniques have changed. And while the PRC seems to be villain #1, our so-called allies, such as Israel and France, are just as active.

So, what's a person to do? You can start with Trade Secret Theft, Industrial Espionage, and the China Threat.

This book provides an overview of economic espionage as practiced by a range of nations from around the world—focusing on the mass scale in which information is being taken for China's growth and development. It supplies an understanding of how the economy of a nation can prosper or suffer, depending on whether that nation is protecting its intellectual property, or whether it is stealing such property for its own use. The text concludes by outlining specific measures that corporations and their employees can practice to protect information and assets, both at home and abroad.
