Mistrusted Allies

Legion of Spies Trying to Steal Britains’ Secrets

A UK-Restricted document made available to the Daily Telegraph discusses the large scale threat to the intellectual property of Great Britain. The threat? the almost complete compromise of all high level business, governments and departments. At least that is how the article would portray it. FUD? Who knows.

France is called out as one of the many countries dead set on obtaining every last bit of data. Is the US in the same shape? From my corporate perspective, the threat is most definitely real. The concept of hacking for fun is so 90s – hacking for profit is where it’s at, and it’s not just drive by hacking any more, we are talking advanced threats.

US intellectual property compromised or at great risk? I don’t doubt it. If only for the reason that the US shares so much with the UK, and vice versa, is this information at risk. France and other NATO countries…. yeah mistrusted allies alright.
