120 billion is lost to Intellectual Property theft in Europe every year alone with additional uncountable loss in competitiveness and fraud that can be attributed to the intentional use of electronic devices for capture storage and transmission of confidential information. A significant proportion of this crime affects 750000 innovative high tech European SMEs. The losses incurred by knowledge theft impact on other sectors such as the 120000 commercial law firms predominantly SMEs and 250 000 SME accountants and 200000 SME insurers. We have pulled together a supply chain of SMEs to propose a solution preventing the theft of vital secret knowledge the lifeblood of all organisations. Every year over 2 million bugging devices sold across Europe and potentially tens of millions globally. These eavesdropping devices if not detected they have the potential to steal Billions of Euros of secret knowledge from unprotected knowledge reliant SMEs. The only current counter measure is Ssweeping which costs around 4000 for a Ssweep service potentially 48 000 yearly for monthly cover per SME of which very few can afford it.
Specifically the system developed will bring a preventative measure for both large and small knowledge reliant companies a new affordable integrated detection and identification system that integrates the key technology elements of developed NLJD technology into an arch architecture system capable of detecting a threat to IPR capable of detecting, the threat of an individuals ability to steal secret knowledge for which there is no currently available alternative. The SafeTalk will allow for detection of various types of electronic devices that prevents owners of surveillance devices from entering information sensitive areas and prevents potential sensitive knowledge theft attempts...
