DEFENSE SECURITY SERVICE ALEXANDRIA VA
Pagination or Media Count:
In fiscal year 2012 FY12, the total number of industry reports to the Defense Security Service DSS concerning attempts by foreign collectors to obtain illegal or unauthorized access to sensitive or classfied information and technology resident in the U.S. cleared industrial base continued to rise. In the FY10 version of this publication, the reported year-over-year rise was 50 percent in the FY11 version, it was 74 percent in this years version, it is 60 percent. In FY12, industry reporting reached a watermark of sorts. For the first time, one region, East Asia and the Pacific was the origin of half of all reported incidents, an increase from 43 percent of the total in FY11. The number of reported cases DSS ascribed to every other region also rose from FY11 to FY12. However, given the magnitude of the increase in reports attributed to East Asia and the Pacific, the share of the total ascribed to every other region either stayed the same as in FY11 or declined.
