Put simply, industrial espionage is about businesses trying to gain a competitive edge and advantage over another by acquiring sensitive and confidential competitor information.
It can play out in a number of ways. Firstly, a dissatisfied existing or former employee may be targeted by a competitor to pass on highly valuable information with the intent to either damage the company or help further their own personal or professional interests.
Secondly it may take the form of a competitor directly paying an existing employee, company stakeholder or supplier to pass on confidential company assets.
The loss of such types of information can prove hugely damaging to a business both financially and reputationally.
