Security has always been a major concern to businesses that have proprietary information, but as the instances of intellectual property theft rise from year to year, it is becoming more and more essential for businesses to stay abreast of the latest trends and technologies in the field. An effective security program is the surest way to protect a business from intellectual property theft, and the content in this book will help security managers to understand and address the dangers that face them. This book outlines threats to trade secrets that are commonly overlooked by security professionals, and shows specific, concrete steps to minimize these threats. Threats addressed include portable and covert storage devices, daily activities that seem harmless but can lead to loss of proprietary information, wireless networks, and deleted and residual data that can easily be recovered. Protect your organization from threats within and without!
