Coun­ter­in­tel­li­gence web­site

The Washington Times Weekly - - Geopolitics -

The Cen­tre for Coun­ter­in­tel­li­gence and Se­cu­rity Stud­ies last week launched its new web­site pro­vid­ing a one-stop re­source for in­for­ma­tion on for­eign spy­ing and terrorism.

Founded in 1997 by for­mer FBI Agent David Ma­jor, the pro­ject is called SPYPEDIA and pro­vides an ar­ray of de­tails on a large num­ber of spy cases. Its tra­di­tional es­pi­onage case file alone lists 280 cur­rent and past cases, along with 125 eco­nomic es­pi­onage cases, many of them Chinese-re­lated.

“We are ex­tremely proud to of­fer this ex­cit­ing new prod­uct to the pri­vate and gov­ern­ment se­cu­rity and na­tional de­fense com­mu­ni­ties, along with the aca­demic [com­mu­nity] and gen­eral pub­lic,” said Mr. Ma­jor, CICen­tre pres­i­dent. “Af­ter well over a decade’s worth of R&D, based upon cus­tomer in­put from around the world to in­clude multi­na­tional ex­perts, we are con­fi­dent that SPYPEDIA will ex­ceed our mem­bers’ ex­pec­ta­tions and bring a deeper un­der­stand­ing of the im­por­tance of se­cu­rity and the need to in­vest in this cru­cial strate­gic dis­ci­pline.”
