Description

 

Our nation’s secrets are in jeopardy, the same secrets that make your company profitable. The FBI estimates billions of U.S. dollars are lost to foreign competitors every year. These foreign competitors deliberately target economic intelligence in advanced technologies and flourishing U.S. industries.  Furthermore, FBI investigations indicate economic espionage and trade secret theft against US oil and natural gas companies and institutes are on the rise. Over the past two years, foreign actors have targeted and collected against US companies, universities, think tanks, and government research facilities for oil and natural gas information concerning upstream, midstream, and downstream processes. The FBI continues to lead efforts to mitigate, neutralize, and disrupt the theft of US oil and natural gas intellectual property and trade secrets that could be used by foreign governments or foreign companies to gain an unfair economic advantage.

Please join us to learn who might be stealing your intellectual property and best practices on how to better protect your company.
