Technology is fast evolving. So are the means of industrial spies who take advantage of all the weak points in a company' security systems. Different gadgets are also utilized to clip pictures or videos of important intellectual properties.

Industrial spies can take inspiration from movies depicting the use of mobile phones, high tech computers, and a simple mini spy camera.

The mini spy camera ironically plays a big role in industrial espionage. It is the tool often used by perpetrators in intellectual property stealing. According to experts, detection of internet spies are a lot easier compared to those who use mini spy cams to do industrial espionage.

Spies, as part of their program, can eavesdrop. During this activity, text and phone calls are intercepted. This is commonly done through email hacking, online message hijacking, and phone bugs among others. There are also spy cameras that have long range audio capacities. These cameras can easily record conversations or take a high resolution image or product design.

These jammers can be strategically placed in office areas where most of the vital functions are taking place.

Mini spy cams are potent tools for industrial espionage. It may be as cheap as ten dollars or may be expensive amounting to thousands. Still they can serve the same purpose of leaking information in the hands of good spy.
