Robert B. Milligan, Co-Chair in Seyfarth’s Trade Secrets, Computer Fraud and Non-Competes Practice Group, is serving on a panel for “The Defend Trade Secrets Act: The Lawyer and Forensic Technologist Perspective LIVE Webcast,” presented by The Knowledge Group, LLC  Live Webcast Series, on August 16, 2016.
 
On May 11, 2016, President Obama signed the Defend Trade Secrets Act (“DTSA”), which Congress passed on April 27, 2016.  With President Obama’s signature, the DTSA has now become the law of the land, and a federal civil remedy for trade secrets misappropriation now exists.  
 
In a 90-minute live webcast, a panel of key thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with a thorough discussion of the fundamentals of the DTSA. The panel will also provide insight into the limitations and new benefits of the Acts.
 
Key topics include:
  • Brief history of the DTSA
  • Provisions unique to the DTSA
  • The DTSA’s whistleblower provision
  • The DTSA’s notice requirements for agreements entered into or updated as of today
  • Digital forensics - where do I start
  • Strategies in trade secrets litigation in light of the DTSA
  • What employers and businesses should do now
