Keeping That Genie In The Bottle: Using Trade Secrets to Protect the Improper Use of Your Competitive Information During Unprecedented Times
Presenters: Jennifer Kenedy and Matthew Kalas
The insurance industry is replete with valuable competitive information. A proactive in-place Trade Secret Protection Program prevents the loss of that information to competitors who would unfairly benefit from the improper disclosure or theft of that information. The COVID-19 pandemic presents unprecedented challenges to the ongoing need to protect trade secrets. The massive business disruptions that the insurance industry and others now face include entire workforces forced to work remotely, accessing and using confidential information and trade secrets from home; the substantial slowdown of business activity that may result in the disclosure of confidential information or trade secrets to third parties outside normal procedures; and the off-boarding of remote employees who are accessing confidential information and trade secrets remotely. This webinar will explore trade secret law, how to employ restrictions and other safeguards to protect it, particular considerations in light of COVID-19, and investigation and litigation strategies to stop improper use and transmission. RSVP for this program.
