Economic espionage is a problem that costs the American economy hundreds of billions of dollars per year and puts our national security at risk. Foreign competitors deliberately target economic intelligence in advanced technologies and flourishing U.S. industries. Historically, economic espionage has targeted defense-related and high-tech industries, but recent FBI cases have shown that no industry, large or small, is immune to the threat. Any company with a proprietary product, process, or idea can be a target; any unprotected trade secret is vulnerable to theft by those who wish to illegally obtain innovations to increase their market share at a victim company’s expense.

With more than 23 years of law enforcement experience with the FBI, Special Agent Michael Pollice’s career has spanned numerous disciplines. As a senior investigator in the FBI’s National Security Division he has led complex counterintelligence operations as well as insider threat and economic espionage investigations. In addition SA Pollice is a FBI Certified Instructor and conducts outreach with the private sector to raise public awareness and inform industry leaders on how to protect their intellectual property from both internal and external threats. SA Pollice has received numerous awards during his career including the prestigious Attorney General’s Award for Excellence in Law Enforcement. SA Pollice is currently assigned to the FBI’s New York Field Office.
