Guard your trade secrets with a proactive defense and an aggressive response
No business can protect itself from the theft of its intellectual property and trade secrets, even when it has implemented robust policies and procedures to protect its information.
When your valuable trade secrets have been stolen, misappropriated, or disclosed by a former employee, you must take prompt action to protect your business and its valuable trade secrets and confidential business information.
Businesses today routinely insist that its employees, contractors and vendors enter into non-solicitation, no-hire, confidentiality agreements and other restrictive covenants.
Businesses in competitive industries are susceptible to employee raiding. Your business can suffer catastrophic consequences if key employees are deliberately targeted by a competitor’s predatory efforts to recruit your employees in order to access and leverage your trade secrets and confidential information.
Mishandling business information can happen to any business with devastating consequences, including the loss of competitive advantages and a sharp impact on the company’s profitability. In an effort to increase efficiencies, businesses permit more and more information to reside in the cloud or to be accessed remotely.
Most business dealings today require companies to reveal at least some of their trade secrets and other proprietary information, whether to employees and contractors working for the company, or a strategic partner or supplier, or to a company that seeks to acquire the business.
When your trade secrets are misappropriated, your business will take prompt action to prevent their misuse and obtain the return of such information. To avoid being sued by a business competitor for the same claims, it is important to screen potential new hires that may possess confidential information. . .
Many agreements that employers and businesses use are intended to address trade secret concerns and to secure confidential business information both now and into the future. Awareness and workforce training are key to making sure that your business properly uses all of the tools available to it to ensure your company's growth and continued success.
