Cyber Spies Stealing Corporate Secrets & Technology


With cyber heists plundering $1 trillion in global intellectual property (per President Obama) and driving "the greatest transfer of wealth in human history" (per NSA Director Alexander), corporations face bet-the-company threats when cyber attacks and data breaches empty their intellectual property vaults, torpedo their mergers and business deals, and crush their stock prices. In their recent article, "Pillaging the Digital Treasure Troves: The Technology, Economics, and Law of Cyber Espionage," published in the ABA's The SciTech Lawyer (Winter 2014), C&M attorneys David Bodenheimer and Gordon Griffin explore the methods employed by cyber spies to steal corporate IP and trade secrets, discuss the economic impact of cyber theft at the individual corporate level (i.e., the business case for cybersecurity), and the looming litigation, regulatory, and enforcement risks to corporations suffering technology and IP losses as a result of cyber thefts.
