Spooky Business: Corporate Espionage Against Nonprofit Organizations

Source: Gary Ruskin, Essential Information, November 20, 2013

From a press release:
Although recent revelations about government surveillance has drawn attention to the issue, the spread of corporate espionage against citizen organizations has received comparatively limited attention from Congress and mainstream media, even though it often poses a direct threat to citizens’ constitutional rights and the public’s ability to hold corporations accountable.

Spooky Business documents:
– An increase in the incidence of known spying operations against nonprofits, most involving a wide variety of sophisticated tactics.
– The abuse of government resources, facilitated by a “revolving door” between government and corporate intelligence personnel.
– The globalization of corporate surveillance by U.S. multinationals.
– How businesses that undertake such activities run the risk of incurring significant reputational damage.
