A Morning of Corporate Espionage and Intrigue...

In a state dealing with a global economy, corporate and Industrial espionage has never been more prevalent in Wisconsin. Once only a threat to big businesses, covert activities such as the theft of trade secrets, bribery, blackmail and technological surveillance via the internet has never been easier for the criminal element to execute. Foreign countries such as China, Russia and others are hungry for information - and you could be the next target.

Byron Franz is a Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and has worked national security investigations for over 16 years. He currently serves as the Strategic Partnership Coordinator for the FBI’s Milwaukee Division, where his job is to form partnerships with corporations, colleges, and universities to better protect intellectual property and trade secrets.

Special Agent Franz has a B.A. in International Relations and Russian from the University of 
Wisconsin-Madison and a J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School. View video

Takes place Friday, November 21st at 7:00 am at the Wisconsin Club, 900 W. Wisconsin Ave. 

$32.00 - IBAW members $42.00 - Guests.


Special thanks to the Wisconsin Safety Council for allowing IBAW to utilize their YouTube video.
