The present paper highlights by describing one highly specific type of white collar crimes, industrial secrets leakage, and how it is committed. Next, it attempts to discuss how to manipulate situational factors occurring in the immediate environment. As part of the answer, it explains SCP theory and why white collar crimes such as industrial secrets leakages are differentiated from ordinary street crimes. In doing so, it can be able to identify distinct characteristics of white collar crimes such as industrial secrets leakages that may be necessary to modify the situational crime prevention strategies to apply to white collar crime. In conclusion, the present paper discusses how we might apply interventions affecting the judgment of offenders. By doing so we might design a program to control it using ideas drawn from SCP theory.
