FBI Advice: How to Travel Safe and Secure 

Economic espionage is a serious threat to corporations and the business traveler. Perpetrators of crimes are competitors, opportunists or foreign intelligence officers. In many countries, domestic corporations collect competitive intelligence with the help and support of their government. To mitigate this risk, critical information and technologies should be protected. The U.S. Department of Justice Federal Bureau of Investigation will provide valuable information to promote good security habits that will help protect you and your companies. We will discuss updates and resources as well as IP protection at trade shows, cybersecurity for the business traveler and best practices for collaborating with foreign partners. 


This workshop will help you learn: 

  • Specific threats from foreign adversaries 
  • Best practices to secure proprietary information 
  • How to raise your own awareness during international travel 



  • 9:00 - 9:30: Breakfast and networking
