Nest of Spies - The Startling Truth About Foreign Agents At Work Within Canada's Borders

By Fabrice De Pierrebourg and Michel Juneau-Katsuya

book cover for nest of spies


"Nest of Spies" is an account of international operators conducting surveillance and carrying out costly and often deadly missions right under the noses of Canadian personnel — from businessmen with ingenious schemes to steal plans and materials from which they can reverse-engineer Canadian products, to cutting edge Internet thieves who infiltrate government databases and burst through bank firewalls, stealing records and tracking new Canadians from their home country. 

Industrial espionage has cost thousands of jobs and billions of dollars. Ultimately, the responsibility to protect intellectual assets remains with businesses themselves, but are they prepared to face the task of working against a highly organized and professional foe? 

This book provides you with advice on how to protect your organization from the dangerous and expensive consequences of international ill-intent, while giving a history of moles inside Canadian society, government, military and high-tech business.
