Submission + - Edward Snowden says NSA engages in industrial espionage ( 2

Maow writes: Snowden has been interviewed by a German TV network and stated that the NSA is involved in industrial espionage, which is outside the range of national security.

He claims that Siemens is a prime example of a target for the data collection.

I doubt this would suprise AirBus or other companies, but it shall remain to be seen what measures global industries take (if any) to prevent their internal secrets from falling into NSA's — and presumably American competitors' — hands.

  • Siemens, Petrobras and maybe a few more are big, known enough firms that are subject to government sponsored industrial espionage. But the same could be happening to a big number of them, of any size, and the only hint you could get is losing a contract against a big US (or allied in this) company.
