How Big is This Problem?

 The U.S. State Department estimates that there are over three quarters of a million eavesdropping devices sold each year (this does not include legitimate items used surreptitiously). The State Department also reports that over 6,500 incidents of industrial espionage occur in the United States each year with an average economic impact of well over a million dollars each. Additionally, the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) estimates that Economic and Industrial Espionage cost Fortune 1000 companies over $50 billion in 2001. And, an annual report to Congress in 2004 on Foreign Economic Collection and Industrial Espionage estimates that such activities cost anywhere from $100 to $250 billion annually. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce also reports that espionage, both foreign theft against American companies and American companies spying on American companies, costs companies literally billions of dollars every month. These figures have increased since these reports were issued.
