“Polish Ex-Security Official Charged With Spying for China During Government Service,” The Wall Street Journal, January 16, 2019.  Allegations that a former security official spied for China, either before or after he left his government position.  Did this compromise not only Polish intelligence, but also the intelligence of Poland’s allies?

The weakest link in a security cordon is no people breaching the technology protections; it’s the weaknesses of the human assets.  Not only your human assets, but the human assets of your partners, agents, and contractors with access.
