Re: Have you considered....
Nationalism aside, I wonder what a world where China dominated the pharma market would look like.

Of course, there is tons of international cooperation and collaboration between companies today as it is, but that still largely benefits the West.

Re: That follows my own thinking as well
...not to mention arrest journalists and other people in the public eye as they are traveling in China, on trumped up charges, and indefinitely detain them.

Scary stuff.

Re: Define the boundaries
Of course, you can't just feed your attackers ONLY bogus or public info.  SOME of it has to be good, on a token level...Otherwise, they will learn to distrust this data and keep digging.

@Dr.T: Good point.  In this sense, it's really no different than a major company's customer analytics endeavors.  ;)

Re: Have you considered....
Subversion is a lot easier if people don't have any reason to mistrust you, if there is lots of discontent, and if the system you're trying to subvert is unpopular to begin with; ergo, if you're trying to subvert your neighbors, then your public image matters a lot.

data encryption
Internal networks data of health care organizations is not encrypted - the safety operations should start within their own networks.

Facebook for human intelligence and social engineering
What is described in terms of Facebook for human intelligence seems quite similar to an APT attack ("We have already witnessed major compromises in healthcare, the US government, the Bundestag, and media being attacked by sophisticated adversaries, in most cases, roaming freely on networks for months at a time.") and also to the way of stealing data through a core target and its peripheral contacts and relatives ("Using stolen healthcare data, these human collectors can identify someone with access to sensitive information who unfortunately has a sick relative. As the healthcare bills pile up and they become increasingly despondent to help their sick relative get the medical treatment they need, an opening begins to emerge".).

It seems that the Facebook for human intelligence has become a contemporary and sophisticated extension of the social engineering process.

Best regards,
