Book Description

Each business day, some 35,000 executives, scientists, consultants and lawyers pass through the nation's airports to destinations across the globe. They carry, along with proprietary documents and computer files, the latest in personal electronic gear. Their goal is to further their interests, improve their bottom line, engage in transactions with foreign partners and maintain their competitive advantage. That describes one side of what has become, along with terrorism, the biggest threat to the economies of free nations since the Cold War. On the other side, carefully watching most of those travelers, beginning the moment they arrive at the airport and often sooner, are uncounted numbers of espionage operatives. These individuals work for foreign intelligence services and economic concerns. They, too, are pursuing a goal: to separate international business travelers from their trade secrets. To succeed, they use many time-tested techniques to lure unsuspecting travelers into vulnerable or compromising positions. They also employ the latest electronic means to steal business information often at a distance from their prey. This is the 21st century, after all, and economic and industrial espionage have become multi-billion-dollar enterprises, utilizing a wide array of the most sophisticated means to obtain proprietary information. Luke Bencie is a veteran of this struggle. He knows intimately the threats business travelers face and how to combat those threats. In Among Enemies: Counter-Espionage for the Business Traveler, Bencie provides everything you need to know to protect yourself and your company from attempted espionage. In these times, you can't afford to be without this important resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting July 15 2013
By Nick - Published on
Who knew being a businessman was so dangerous? Each page opened up new insights into the dangers of international business travel which, unless you have served as an intelligence collector in the CIA, you would have little idea how to thwart. The informal (and witty) language makes it a fun read, but it is very informative as well. Highly recommended for business travelers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among Enemies Book Has My 6 April 25 2013
By Robert Brzenchek - Published on
If you've ever worked in the military or law enforcement fields you know having someone's 6 is the difference between life and death. After I and my entire family read Among Enemies: Counter Espionage for the Business Traveler I felt it had our 6.

I have been a police officer in Washington DC and Intelligence Specialist in the Navy and feel I have heightened situational awareness. However, after reading this book I have found when it comes to safeguarding myself from threats and the intellectural property I coveted while I travel that I had many deficiencies. This book was a real world how to book that has educated me and my entire family to eliminate those deficiencies.

Terrorism is real and unfortunately still among us as we have seen with the Boston Marathon and as a society we all must be vigilante while we travel CONUS and OCONUS. This book really stresses vigilance and counter-measures when faced with espionage. A must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for the international business person April 19 2013
By Reg Nordman - Published on
This is not a joke. The author really knows this stuff and if you travel internationally at all much of what he says rings true. He covers all aspects of locking down your Business Information/IP , where it is and how to do it step by step. I have a new appreciation of the "leakiness" of my electronic devices and forewarned is forearmed. Easy read - this one is immediately useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Geez, what an eye-opener! April 15 2013
By Roger S. Peterson - Published on
Because of this book, I am no longer a naïve farm boy from Minnesota. Geez, I have reread some chapters twice already, and I don't even have an overseas trip planned.

We Americans are so used to safety and security. We take things for granted. Bencie's AMONG ENEMIES really opened my eyes. A big one: Learning how dumb we men can be about female attention sent our way. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

I have told at least 10 world travelers about this book. Some of the horror stories made their eyes pop out.

Loved the chapter FAQs and the lists of do's and don'ts. There is a true/false checklist that is worth the price of the book. I won't even use Wi-Fi in Starbucks now....let alone airports.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent situational awareness guidance March 19 2014

"Among Enemies " is a must read for anyone traveling internationally, but is equally applicable for domestic travel, or even a trip to the neighborhood market. We all have a personal responsibility for the safety/security of ourselves, our loved ones, and the business IP that we are entrusted with. Remembering Rule No 1 should become automatic for all of us as it applies to criminal elements around us everyday as well as international espionage scenarios. The book is full of practical instruction and excellent real-world examples/ teaching moments. The author's experience and expertise is evident on each page. I am reading it a second time, outlining key points as a reference/study tool so that they become instinctual and practiced everyday.
