    IN 1999, as a writer for The American Prospect, I went into a slaughterhouse undercover, with the help of some rebellious employees. The floor was slick with the residue of blood and suet, and the air smelled like iron. A part of my brain spent the whole time trying to remember which of Dante’s circles this scene most resembled. Today, under legislation being pushed by business interests, that bit of journalistic adventure could earn me a criminal conviction and land me on a registry of “animal and ecological terrorists.” So-called ag-gag laws, proposed or enacted in about a dozen states,...

    Even today there are some still blank stares when I suggest to an audience of C-level executives or security professionals that they should all read the front pages of the Financial Times, the Yomiuri Shimbun, etc., as well as the technology news, if they want to know what cyber risks and threats to prepare for. Oh, the battle might be waged in bits and bytes, and bloodied patch bulletins that arrive six months too late; but the war will be won by those who could read between lines of the lead stories in politics and business, and it will most...

    iPods can be tools of espionage Graeme Kemlo APRIL 26, 2005 STOLEN laptops and lost PDAs embarrass governments and businesses. Paris Hilton's smartphone outed her contacts. But the new corporate security risk might be a seemingly innocent iPod. With gigabyte data capacities, they are the potential weak links in small-to-medium enterprises (SME) and corporate networks that are otherwise secured at significant effort and expense. Oscar Moren, Australian managing director of Pointsec Mobile Technologies, which specialises in encryption for all the main PC and mobile platforms and storage media, says Australian companies are only starting to understand how dangerous removable media...

  • US strikes at corporate spies

    When Congress passed the Economic Espionage Act of 1996, corporate security watchers hoped for a crackdown on foreign intelligence agents conspiring to steal corporate America's crown jewels. Seven years later, they're still waiting. To date, US prosecutors have only twice in more than 40 alleged trade-secret cases gone after foreign government involvement. Such charges, a primary goal of the law, carry steeper penalties. Whether the US Government has been overly cautious with a diplomatically sensitive issue or prudent with a powerful law enforcement tool is a topic that experts in the corporate security arena still debate. But next summer, the...
