“Androulidakis and Kioupakis present an overview of the technical aspects of industrial espionage and of related countermeasures. … This is a small book that can be read quickly, written in very simple terms and enriched by plenty of illustrations. Its elementary approach to technical matters makes it approachable to a vast audience of nontechnical readers whose business activities could be affected by the phenomenon of industrial espionage.” (Alessandro Berni, Computing Reviews, December, 2016)
