Protecting Your Trade Secret in the Digital AgePDF Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of California (IIABCal) Insurance Law Track
JeffreyD. Farrow presented on "Protecting Your Trade Secret in the Digital Age," for the fourth installment of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of California's (IIABCal) Insurance Law webinar track on Thursday, December 15, 2016. Given today's highly mobile workforce, coupled with the speed and ease by which trade secrets can be electronically sent around the world, trade secret owners must impose safeguards on what information can be accessed, when, why and by whom. This webinar highlighted the need for employers to protect their company's assets from being raided by a departing employee and potentially used by a competitor, and offered specific steps that should be taken to reduce the risk of trade secret theft in the digital age.
