In hopes to keep itself safe from industrial espionage, Porsche AG is blocking its employees from having access to Facebook and Xing.
Dirk Erat, a Porsche spokesman, said today that the company is concerned that foreign intelligence services may be spying on workers posting “confidential” information on Facebook and other social-networking services.
“These services imply a certain threat potential,” Erat said. Barring access at workstations to sites including EBay Inc. reflects “principal company policy,” Erat said.
