Industrial espionage involves operations conducted by one corporation against another for the purpose of acquiring a competitive advantage in domestic or global markets.
More simply put, the term industrial espionage refers to the competition’s organised strategies to elicit sensitive corporate information, and therefore reap effortlessly and with minimum cost the benefits that a company had been struggling to build for many years. It is most commonly associated with technology-heavy industries, particularly the computer and auto sectors, in which a significant amount of money is spent on research and development (R&D).
Industrial espionage is achieved by various, low cost espionage techniques such as phone tapping, waste management and staff bribing. The aim of such actions is stealing financial information, customer data, reports of new products research and development, etc.
To counter such actions, it is necessary to deal separately with each part of the business that is vulnerable to competition attacks. Our agency undertakes the implementation of a comprehensive policy for internal security, starting with a full check to assess the current levels of security and then applying countermeasures to avoid potential threats to your business.
