Every year corporate espionage, data theft and private cyber-attacks cost US companies and individual citizens hundreds of billions of dollars and the threat is growing. This new book is the most up-to-date and complete account of modern private sector intelligence practice available.

The author provides in-depth analysis of the rapidly growing field of corporate and industrial espionage and its impact on companies and individuals. The book covers how companies and private citizens can and must defend themselves against the massively expanded threat of modern, unrestrained for-profit intelligence. Recent cases, such as, the cyber attacks on Sony, the Hollywood hacker and the rise of Chinese intelligence groups targeting the US, have brought the subject of industrial espionage, cyber attack and for-profit intelligence to the forefront of national attention. People across the country are clamoring for more information on this imminent threat. The Grey Line: Modern Corporate Espionage and Counterintelligence provides both insight into how spies operate in the real world and practical solutions and tips on how to protect yourself and your business.
