Survey finds widespread spying by Indian companies

According to a recent report by the Associated Chamber of Commerce and Industry of India, corporate espionage is a booming industry in India and it is being fueled by executives spying on their rivals as well as their own employees. The report states that over 35 percent of companies operating in various sectors across India are engaged in corporate espionage to gain advantage over their competitors and are even spying on their employees via social networking web sites. While checking out people's activity on social media sites like LinkedIn or Twitter didn't sound too alarming, Assocham made a stronger claim that about 900 respondents said that they plant a mole in other companies, usually as receptionists, photo-copiers and other low-end jobs.
