Trade secrets are just that, supposed to be kept secret. That’s why it is important for organizations to take steps to protect against trade secret theft. With the recent passage of The Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, it is a good time for your clients to reevaluate their trade secret protections.
Often times, businesses aren’t aware of trade secrets they own. This could include specific processes, compilations, customer lists, formulas, etc.
An often-overlooked risk in protecting trade secrets is technology. At P&N, we can help your clients discover the loss, theft or misuse of trade secrets and implement safeguards to protect sensitive information.
