"Has our national obsession with terrorism created a cloak of safety for the everyday criminal? In this chilling expose of real-life spy tactics and how to combat them, international espionage and security expert Ira Winkler shows you exactly how the harmless-looking new guy at the office may be doing your organization - or your credit rating - infinitely more damage than that machine gun-toting fellow on the evening news."--BOOK JACKET.
