Workshop with the topic: “economic espionage“

Company trade secrets or intellectual property may be of interest or value to industry competitors or hostile governments.  A simple thing like pricing strategies can have tremendous value to outside competitors, but the loss of that information can have a devastating impact on the company and the economy as a whole. The aim of this workshop will be to raise the level of awareness at AmCham member companies and other OSAC constituents that they are being targeted and that the targeting is likely highly sophisticated. It is especially relevant for security and compliance officers in companies.

Speaker: William Klarer, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Program Manager for the Counterintelligence Division’s Outreach Initiative
Where: American Center, Tržiště 13 (1st floor), Mala Strana, Prague
When: Wednesday, September 24, 2014, from 10 a.m. to noon
entrance fee: free of charge, language: English

Seating is limited to 50; RSVP via email by 17 September at legatprague@state.gov
