As such, we are closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak according to the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

We advised our employees to follow the public health authorities' guidance regarding hygiene and personal travel, and we reinforced employees who exhibit flu-like symptoms to stay home and consult with a medical professional. We limited business travel and encouraged employees to leverage technology to maintain business duties as we can.

We have measures in place so that we can complete business needs and will keep you updated on our Action Plan. If needed, we will have staff working from home to maintain our level of service.

We have been seeing some closures in various court systems which affect our ability to research criminal records. In addition, with schools closings in certain areas, we are seeing delays in education verifications. This is a fluid situation and we will continue to monitor these areas and update you as information becomes available.

Corporate Espionage

CIC security professionals are trained and equipped to detect electronic spying, wiretaps, and other methods of corporate espionage.

Corporate Espionage

If you have a product or service to sell, you and your organization are at risk of being victimized by corporate espionage and information theft.

It happens to large and small organizations alike. In fact, 40 percent of all U.S. businesses have reported intellectual property losses. And, the average loss due to corporate espionage over a two-year period is over $4 million.

An organization can lose proprietary information through a simple incident such as someone rummaging through its trash. The greater loss might occur through the loss of a mobile device, tablet or laptop computer. More sophisticated means of corporate espionage and information theft is also prevalent, including the planting of radio frequency transmitters and phone taps.

Electronic countermeasures are part of the solution.

Corporate Intelligence Consultants has invested in sophisticated electronic equipment and training with the industry’s best. Steven R. Cotner, CIC president, has actively conducted technical electronic countermeasure surveys for the last 35 years.
