About the Seminar:

As an outline for this presentation we will start by understanding how we got into this invisible war, and why stealing IP (Intellectual Property) from America is a course of business as well as standard policy for most foreign countries.

Next we will discuss the types of issues the U.S. faces every day, such as:

- Espionage

- Technology Transfer

- Counterfeit parts and electronics

- Chinese interests in U.S. business

- Trade practices

- National security

Then we will look at some of the things travelers should be aware of concerning digital media when traveling to different countries such as:

- U.S.B devices purchased or received as gifts

- Phishing attacks

- Electronic pick pockets

Lastly we will discuss safe practices and procedures concerning digital data when traveling, and we will finish by looking at what is happening right now when it comes to stealing U.S. Intellectual Property as well as commercial tools used for cyber spying such as Raytheon’s new RIOT tool.
