Abstract

This paper focuses on the usage of open source information and software, and makes reference to the information entrepreneur and the growing demand associated with information services. The development of networked communities is highlighted and attention is given to the work of computer hacker groups. The problems facing law enforcement officers, intelligence and security officers, and corporate intelligence and security officers are referred to. Various arguments for counterintelligence are put forward and a pro-active approach to security work is advocated. The paper makes clear the fact that greater co-operation is needed between staff from both the public and private sectors, and makes the case for an effective intelligence and security monitoring system to be put in place.
