The COVID-19 pandemic has stirred a significant shift in the way businesses protect their trade secrets. With most communications and transactions becoming virtual, companies started optimizing the use of new technologies to better position themselves in the market. This has led to additional challenges and has opened more risks of trade secrets disputes.
