 CBIA will be hosting South Africa’s first conference on business counterintelligence and the protection of corporate information during September 2012 at the Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge in the Pilanesberg, North West Province.   Many companies do not take information security seriously although information and intellectual property is now amongst some of the greatest corporate assets.   One of the key aims of the conference is to involve and to provide decision makers, managers and business unit leaders with the insight to understand business counterintelligence and how it differs from other streams of information management and security practices.   Corporate globalisation, worldwide economic instability, governments on the verge of collapse, turmoil in the Middle East, insecurity over oil supplies and aggressive competitorS all create a challenging threat environment for today’s business executive.   The need for corporations to establish and maintain robust security and counterintelligence capabilities is unmatched in history. The life blood of corporate growth and stability rests on the intellectual and trade secrets. Corporations invest millions to develop and own trade secrets and intellectual property. There is a huge payoff from corporate espionage and information theft. Corporate information gathering is a fact of life, even more so during hard and tough economic times.
