Given the globally dispersed nature of many private-sector organizations and our present level of advanced digital connectedness, protecting secrets from adversaries and cybercriminals has never been more important or more difficult. Around the world, state-sponsored and independent hackers are conducting cyber-enabled theft of U.S. intellectual property (IP) for profit and, in many cases, to advance technological capabilities of foreign business competitors. Based on his career with the FBI and current role as head of national counterintelligence for the U.S. Government, Director Evanina will outline the current state of cyber-enabled corporate espionage and discuss how U.S. private-sector organizations should be approaching the threat of IP theft in the months and years ahead.
