Guest Presenter:

A FBI Special Agent

You've taken all the recommended cybersecurity actions. You have secured ITAR areas. And you welcome tours by potential global customers and suppliers to show off your unique capabilities. Did you know that you could be losing valuable IP just by granting permission to "may I touch"?

On October 3, The San Diego Chapter of the A&D Forum will screen a film produced by the FBI followed by comments by our presenter a FBI Special Agent.

Economic espionage is real and securing the information that makes your corporation relevant is essential for its survival.

Crime does not happen in a vacuum, THERE WILL BE INDICATORS.

The FBI Special Agent will talk about the "Insider Threat" and how to detect them.

THE COMPANY MAN: Protecting America's Secret.

The Company Man is a production of the FBI's Counterintelligence Strategic Partnership Unit in association with the National Counterintelligence Executive and Rocket Media Group. It is a cautionary tale, showing how and why every employee must be invested in the protection of their company's trade secrets.

Robert Moore has been a loyal employee for nearly 15 years. But recent financial difficulties and the possibility of being passed up for a promotion may change all that.

Eight thousand miles away, a devastating apartment fire in Shanghai, China kills 57 people. Then comes a job offer to Robert from a local headhunter ... and a break-in at the plant.

These three outwardly unrelated events would soon threaten the financial viability of the entire company ... and the small rural community where he lives.
