The United States is now pushing corporations to protect themselves, and their intellectual property as a waves of cases accusing individuals and companies of economic spying on the US and her allies. The initiative which started Monday, points of recent attacks on IBM, Hewlett Packard and others. One key driver of this new initiative is the National Counter-Intelligence and Security Center, which has an outreach program to help US firms understand the threats that have increased in recent years. The center is worried about cyber attacks on US government agencies – but again the line that separates corporations and government entities is thin as bad actors from abroad only care about information, technology or anything that will drive their political or economic agenda.
The efforts by this institution to protect US interests utilizes videos, brochures, and online information materials which describe the threats posed by cyber criminals and bad actors in this space. The brochure details hackers use of fake accounts to breach security walls and methods to deceive people to get personal details.
