Chinese IP Theft at Nortel: A Cautionary Tale

Posted by crimsonlanguage on 2012/02/14

Another story of Chinese IP theft – this time at Nortel Networks and lasting a decade. Advanced medical device technology is a well-known target of Chinese IP theft (both industry-based and government-based) and manufacturers should pay attention to several key areas:

– Network intrusions (hacking)

– Supplier integrity (transfer of sensitive information)

You maynot have considered it, but translation services are emerging as a significant source of IP risk. Sensitive information that is translated by China-based services is “as good as gone”. Other suppliers, too, can be a security risk for sensitive information.
