"There is an old saying, 'Business is War,' and Sticky Fingers shows us just how true that is! It presents a sobering message all across corporate America: be proactive in mitigating your risks or others will be proactive in exploiting them."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this fascinating book on economic espionage, Fink (Crisis Management: Planning for the Inevitable) makes the case that the global threat of economic espionage is enormous and that all companies, regardless of size, need to take steps to counter this threat. The first half of the book presents the global view and lists the various countries suspected of spying on the United States. The second half offers advice on how a company can protect its trade secrets and whether it should go public with a trade secret loss, involve the FBI, or keep quiet about the breach. Throughout, the author profiles the first case that the FBI prosecuted under the Economic Espionage Act of 1996. This case involved an employee of an adhesives company, Avery Dennison Corp., who was eventually convaicted of passing trade secrets to a Taiwanese company, Four Pillars Enterprises. The Avery/Four Pillars case is also covered in Adam L. Penenberg and Marc Barry's Spooked: Espionage in Corporate America (Perseus, 2000). Recommended for corporate, public, and academic libraries.
