Overview:

The current technological revolution has been significantly transforming how companies manage their trade secrets and other important assets. However, although it provides ease and essentially optimizes business operations, it also poses security hurdles which may compromise valuable data. The growing number of misappropriation cases, in addition to the continuing remote workforce trend, further intensifies this challenge presenting more security and regulatory issues.

Businesses should, therefore, assess their vulnerabilities and rethink enforcement procedures to mitigate potential risks. Being up to date with the recent strategical developments is crucial in structuring an effective and efficient data security plan.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive guide on securing and enforcing trade secrets. Speakers will also offer practical strategies to address the current and emerging trade secrets issues.

Key topics include:

  • Trade Secrets Enforcement and Security
  • Remote Workforce Implications on Data Security
  • Critical Issues and Legal Challenges
  • Structuring an Effective Data Security Management Strategy
  • What Lies Ahead
