Stealing corporate secrets using open source intelligence (the practitioner's view)
by David Lilburn Watson
International Journal of Electronic Security and Digital Forensics (IJESDF), Vol. 1, No. 1, 2007

Abstract: Historically, paper-based secrets have been protected by staff classifying them for levels of confidentiality that dictates their handling. Whilst this is predominantly government-led, information classification is also applicable in the private sector. With the move to collaboration between organisations and the use of computers, this has become more difficult. Many secrets are unwittingly made available through different media and are there if one knows where to look for them. This paper scratches the surface of open source intelligence.
