  •  Govt 'working with' corps (8+ / 0-)

    I work at a senior level for a financial services firm, though not a bank.  For many years, DHS and FBI have maintained a very close relationship with us for the purpose of alerting us to and tracking potential and actual physical and electronic threats to our security.  They also appreciate our being open to reporting activity we believe is malicious, even at the risk of embarrassment.  

    I am personally involved in receiving and responding to many of these reports.  There's nothing conspiratorial about this relationship.

        threaten your personal or electronic security by name, frequently?  Do you receive anonymous (small a) death threats on a monthly basis?  Do foreign actors (state sponsored, terror affiliated, criminal) express an interest in penetrating your security to gain money or to destabilize western nations?  If so, do they try repeatedly?

        I don't receive this service personally either, because I'm neither systemically important nor an individually named target for any of these threats.
