From the Inside Flap:

Each business day,some 35,000 executives, scientists, consultants and lawyers pass through the nation's airports to destinations across the globe. They carry, along with proprietary documents and computer files, the latest in personal electronic gear. Their goal is to further their interests, improve their bottom line, engage in transactions with foreign partners and maintain their competitive advantage. That describes one side of what has become, along with terrorism, the biggest threat to the economies of free nations since the Cold War. On the other side, carefully watching most of those travelers, beginning the moment they arrive at the airport – and often sooner – are uncounted numbers of espionage operatives. These individuals work for foreign intelligence services and economic concerns. They, too, are pursuing a goal: to separate international business travelers from their trade secrets. To succeed, they use many time-tested techniques to lure unsuspecting travelers into vulnerable or compromising positions. They also employ the latest electronic means to steal business information – often at a distance from their prey. This is the 21st century, after all, and economic and industrial espionage have become multi-billion-dollar enterprises, utilizing a wide array of the most sophisticated means to obtain proprietary information. Luke Bencie is a veteran of this struggle. He knows intimately the threats business travelers face and how to combat those threats. In Among Enemies: Counter-Espionage for the Business Traveler, Bencie provides everything you need to know to protect yourself and your company from attempted espionage. In these times, you can't afford to be without this important resource.

About the Author:

Luke Bencie has traveled to more than 100 countries over the past 15 years on behalf of the U.S. intelligence community, as well as for the private defense industry. While abroad, he has experienced, firsthand and sometimes painfully, the threat of espionage and the lengths to which foreign intelligence services and other hostile global competitors will go to steal American business secrets. He currently serves as the managing director of Security Management International, LLC, a security-consulting firm in the Washington, DC area and frequently lectures to defense contractors, government agencies and Fortune 500 companies on how to protect their employees, and the intellectual property they carry, while traveling overseas.
