The Quite Threat
Fighting Industrial Espionage In America!

How To Conduct Countermeasures
Sweeps In The 21st Century And
Combat Information Leakage

By Ron Mendell

Industrial espionage is a craft that has evolved over the centuries that remains persistent in its threat. History has shown us that the techniques used today are adaptations of those developed in the sixteenth century and honed through the twentieth century. Accordingly, the text focuses on the similarity of industrial spy craft through time with examples from Anglo-American history. This book will help security professionals to combat industrial (or corporate) espionage in the post-industrial information age by helping to understand its techniques. A primary goal of the book is in giving the reader a real sense of how industrial spies are persistent and clever in circumventing defenses. Another sense the book imparts to the security professional (or the student of security) is that industrial espionage creates paradoxes rather than straightforward, easy solutions. It examines both the defensive and offensive tactics necessary to fight industrial espionage. Living with paradox should be the theme for the security professional, and the book draws wisdom from political philosophers like Machiavelli to aid in that perspective. While the text examines history and discusses security doctrine, it also offers a clear plan of action in dealing with industrial espionage in a fluid, mobile, information-rich business environment. Creating new warriors against the quiet threat is its chief mission.
