Trade secrets are critical intellectual property for most businesses. The threat to trade secrets, whether through cybersecurity or other issues, continues to increase year after year, especially with the increased use of cloud technology, social media, and the like. The alarming frequency of targeted data theft attacks leave a company’s trade secrets and confidential information vulnerable to outside threats. 
In Seyfarth’s fourth installment in its 2018 Trade Secrets Webinar Series, Seyfarth attorneys Robert Milligan and Scott Atkinson, along with Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade CEO Pamela Passman, will address the issue of cyber threats and cover the following topics: 
  • Identifying the greatest threats to trade secrets and how companies fall short on protecting against these threats 
  • Implementing an effective trade secret protection program 
  • Enacting effective risk reduction processes across an organization 
  • Meeting the “reasonable steps” requirement, including real-world examples
