FBI Traces Trail of Spy Ring to China

Wall Street Journal (03/08/12) Scheck, Justin; Perez, Evan

The FBI is stepping up its investigations of cases of corporate espionage in response to the growing number of incidents of trade secret thefts. Among the cases that are currently being investigated by the federal government is the case of Walter and Christina Liew, a couple who lived in California and are accused of stealing corporate secrets from DuPont and selling them to a company owned by the Chinese government. The Liews, the Chinese company, and the Chinese government have denied stealing DuPont’s secrets regarding its process for producing titanium dioxide, which is used to color paints and other products white. The case comes as the bureau has been trying to make companies more aware of the problem of corporate espionage for some time, though those efforts have failed to make a dent in the number of thefts of intellectual property. However, the number of cases of corporate espionage that have been prosecuted has remained low. Roughly 12 cases of corporate espionage have been brought since the Justice Department was given wide latitude to prosecute the crime in 1996, and the number of cases has remained low despite several subsequent crackdowns. In addition, convictions can be hard to obtain because they require prosecutors to demonstrate a direct connection between companies and foreign governments. Meanwhile, many companies are not vigilant about the problem of corporate espionage and do not closely watch their workers to see if they might be stealing trade secrets. Finally, companies are hesitant to report cases of corporate espionage because they are afraid of creating bad publicity for themselves.

Important Background

To better understand the wide-spread impact of Data Breach Management you might wish to read an enlightening artcle on recent data breaches that have been reported.  This article can be found at — http://blogs.mcafee.com/mcafee-labs/revealed-operation-shady-rat  Download the PDF version of Operation Shady RAT report

The author, Dmitri Alperovitch, Vice President, Threat Research, McAfee, Inc. writes –”I am convinced that every company in every conceivable industry with significant size and valuable intellectual property and trade secrets has been compromised (or will be shortly), with the great majority of the victims rarely discovering the intrusion or its impact. In fact, I divide the entire set of Fortune Global 2000 firms into two categories: those that know they’ve been compromised and those that don’t yet know.”

It is estimated that $55 billion a year is lost to litigation awards, property damage and lost productivity from workplace violence.
