Many organisations are targets for corporate or industrial espionage and often the weak link is their personnel who are unaware of the threats and what they can do in mitigation. Foreign Intelligence Services and hostile competitors will target employees at home and when travelling abroad, and in some locations corporate espionage is state sponsored. Industrial espionage includes the theft of intellectual property and other trade secrets, tender and contract negotiation material, theft of financial information and targeted corruption. The targeting of foreign businesses and personnel often starts from the moment a visa application is submitted and it is not uncommon for hotel rooms to be covertly entered and searched for sensitive material, which includes exploiting mobile phones, laptops, USB's and other electronic devices. Eavesdropping and bugging of hotel rooms is a well-used method, as well as covert elicitation.
