Abstract : The hostile intelligence threat arrayed against the United States is pervasive and sobering and confronts the government and our nation's industry with increasingly serious challenges. The threat spans all types of intelligence operations to include traditional human espionage, the most sophisticated electronic devices, and technology transfers. Every kind of sensitive information is vulnerable, including classified government information, industry's emerging scientific and technological (S and T) breakthroughs and unclassified military related technical data. Over the past two decades, the United States has increased reliance on the industrial sector for research, development, test and evaluation (RDT and E) of intricate components for major weapon systems, and command, control, communications and intelligence systems. This shift from government RDT and E to industrial RDT and E has also shifted the direction of hostile intelligence service collection efforts. Espionage cases over the past ten years (involving such industry personnel as Boyce, Bell, Schuler, Harper, and Cavanagh), and the discovery of a growth in incidents of illicit technology transfer, reflect this trend
