We have moved our offices to a larger space to accommodate increased BECCA staff and volunteers. Our e-mail address, telephone number, and postal address remain the same.

We have new research projects that cover the Four Faces of Business Espionage and new protocols that reflect the realities of our changing times. The new study on the effectiveness of Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) in combatting business espionage is two-sided with perspectives from both the business and practitioner perspectives.

There was an owl he lived in an oak
The more he knew the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard
O, if men were all like that wise bird
