Illegal Surveillance Activities
Unfortunately, many people think that if their company is not in the Defense industry or is relatively small, no one will be interested in spying on them. This head-in-the-sand attitude (“It won’t happen to me”) increases the risk, leaving companies vulnerable to major losses.
Your competitors profit from information acquired about your business, and some of them will not stop at legal intelligence-gathering methods.
Information in the wrong hands can ruin a corporation, put people out of work, bankrupt local merchants, and devastate shareholders families.
In some cases the threat you face may stem not from what you have, but from who you are. Your risk can also increase if you possess information that may be of political value to others.
Also, you or your organization may possess information about another targeted entity, which could make you a secondary or indirect target.
Phone conversations can be targeted by illegal surveillance activities. Wireless communications can be easily intercepted.
Your vulnerability to such activities cannot be fully removed, but it can be managed by appropriate countermeasures.
