A disgruntled employee Robert targeted to acquire business secrets of the organization he is working in and wants to sell the same to a competing organization for some financial gain. He started gathering information about the organization and somehow came to know that the organization is conducting a meeting to discuss future business plans. To collect the information about the organization’s business plans, he had built a listening device housed in his bag and arrived the meeting location wearing a suit and tie. One of the employees of the organization thought he was a senior executive from other branch who came to attend the meeting and readily took him to the meeting room. Robert waited until that employee left the meeting room and planted listening devices at multiple places in the room. Then, he went outside the building and started listening and recorded all the conversations in the meeting.
