Hi everybody. The proposition for this discussion is simple: When times are tough financially, how do you protect what is yours? I recently returned from a conference on countering industrial espionage. The cost to a company for stealing another's R&D versus conducting the research themselves is somewhere between one-tenth and one-ten thousandth of the cost. So when funding is scarce, industrial espionage tends to rise.
What security processes and procedures (in general or specifically) would you care to share with your fellow entrepreneurs that you find affordable and effective when money is tight?
