Frederick W. Rustmann, Jr., author of CIA Incorporated: Espionage and the Craft of Business Intelligence, will discuss his book at noon, Friday, June 21, in the Pickford Theater, third floor, James Madison Memorial Building, 101 Independence Ave. S.E. The program, sponsored by the Humanities and Social Sciences Division, is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.
In his new book, Mr. Rustmann asserts that the practice of intelligence collection is as important today to private corporations for the protection of their reputations and market share as it is to governments for national security purposes. He assesses predictable risks for businesses and outlines a blueprint for intelligence collection and analysis that can provide executives with essential facts.
Mr. Rustmann is the founder and chairman of CTC International Group, Inc., one of the leading business risk assessment companies in the United States. From 1966 until his retirement in 1990, Mr. Rustman was a career officer in the Central Intelligence Agency. He served overseas in Europe, Asia, and Africa as a clandestine case officer, then as an instructor for case officers at the CIA's covert training school known as "The Farm." At the time of his retirement, Mr. Rustmann was a member of the CIA's elite Senior Intelligence Service. He is asked frequently by the national media to comment on foreign affairs, security, and terrorism.
