9780761518099: Corporate Espionage: What It Is, Why It's Happening in Your Company, What You Must Do About It

In just one day, Ira Winkler stole a billion dollars' worth of information from a leading corporation. Then he gave it back. That's his job. Companies pay him top dollar to expose the weaknesses of their own information security. This is how they learn from their mistakes. Now you can, too.
The Christian Science Monitor and USA Weekend have compared Mr. Winkler to a modern-day James Bond. The real-life case histories he shares here read like spy thrillers, but they serve a larger purpose: They uncover what you need to know to protect your documents and your company from prying eyes.
Learn how to bulletproof your business with the secrets from this former National Security Agency expert. If your company has anything of value, you can't afford to ignore the lessons in this fascinating book.

Review:

Ira Winkler, a former analyst with the National Security Agency, contends that American companies lose billions of dollars each year through preventable information leaks. In Corporate Espionage, he shows how much of it is pilfered by unremarkable efforts--looking at memos, sifting through trash, peeking on desktops, or simply asking for it--and provides some advice to stop it. Additional highlights include a variety of illuminating anecdotes and an enlightening look at international subterfuge.
