Join us for a very special CLE presentation on Trade Secret Protection

CONSIDER THE STATISTICS

Trade secret theft is at an all-time high. Businesses of all sizes face serious risks to their bottom line, competitive position, and even survival. Lawyers face an increasingly complex landscape when it comes to counseling their clients on trade secret protection in our digital world.

  • Up to $480 billion in business losses were attributed to trade secret misappropriation last year
  • 50% of employees that left their jobs in the last 12 months admitted taking confidential business information with them. 40% of those employees say they will use the information at their new jobs
  • Only 38% of employees believe their managers view data protection as a business priority
  • 45% of trade secret theft was performed by employees transferring data to USB devices, personal computers, tablets, smart phones, or by sending it to a personal e-mail account

EMERGING THREATS INCLUDE

  • The portability of trade secrets in our Internet of Things (IoT) environment
  • Employee turnover in an increasingly mobile workplace
  • The Cloud. Do you even know where your trade secrets are?
  • Increased exposure to trade secret theft through cyber breaches and hacking
  • China continues to ramp-up their attacks on U.S. companies and their trade secrets
