China is continuing to proactively engage in corporate espionage and the latest report commissioned by the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCESRC) reveals the extent of this and makes interesting reading. But it's not just China. A lot of countries actively target western companies and their personnel, whether at home or when they are travelling, to covertly acquire trade secrets. This includes technical surveillance measures and covert elicitation techniques. All organisations who wish to protect their sensitive data and IP need to get some expert counter intelligence advice. This is where we can help. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information

This is a good article that articulates well the threats from corporate espionage and how wide that threat is. All organisations should consider doing a risk assessment to assess their vulnerabilities to theft of trade secrets and then develop and proportionate but effective strategy for mitigating those risks.

Sad to hear of UK serviceman killed in Syria. UK Special Forces are risking their lives daily to make our lives safer and often without the recognition they deserve, for good operational reasons. A big thank you to all these brave soldiers.

Interesting that the US is considering requiring visa applicants to provide details of social media profiles they have held over the previous five years. The need to understand the digital footprint and the impact of social media posts has just got bigger I think, and I wonder which countries will quickly follow the US lead.

The reporting this week of how Facebook and Cambridge analytics may have exploited social media data (Socmed) reinforces the need for organisations to consider how postings on Socmed by employees can expose them to corporate espionage and damage reputation. Open source intelligence (Osint) is being routinely harvested by hostile governments, organised crime groups and competitors and this creates a significant organisational risk. This is one of the reasons Futurum is rolling out a series of one day Social Media Awareness workshops across the UK this year.
