Spook - Used on Wikispooks as a colloquial term for spy but with wider connotations encompassing people whose primary occupation may be in any area of industry, commerce, politics, the media etc., but who also acts as an agent/informant of the secret intelligence services or the security services generally.
In the 21st century, spooks are increasingly heading through the revolving door to work for large companies, particularly in the financial and "private security" sectors.
