Overview:

Trade secrets are a critical component of a business’s intellectual property (IP) portfolio. However, their protection poses substantial challenges. These valuable assets, encompassing a range of confidential information, are susceptible to misappropriation and unauthorized use. Hence, to stay ahead of potential risks and ensure their IP assets are protected, businesses must keep up with the shifting trade secret dynamics.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion on the evolving trade secret landscape. The speakers will also address recent trends and developments, including FTC regulations, the decline of non-compete agreements, and other pertinent topics.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

  • Trade Secrets: An Overview
  • Legal Trends and Cases
  • Global Trade Disputes
  • FTC Regulations and Non-Competes
  • Preserving Secrets Across Borders
