The $20 Million Trade Secret: What Employers Must Know About Protecting Critical Company Information – On-Demand

Original Recording Date: March 15th, 2016
Duration: 75 minutes

In this practical webinar, you’ll learn how to protect your company’s trade secrets and avoid misappropriating others’ secrets. You’ll learn about documents and information that are specific to government contracts and get the inside scoop on the 42-day trial that secured a judgment of $20 million plus sanctions on behalf of a government contractor client. Among other things, you’ll learn answers to the following questions:

  • What is a trade secret?
  • What does the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) have to do with the trade secret status of documents submitted to the government?
  • What do employers and their in-house counsel, human resource professionals, and information technology staff need to know about metadata and the preservation of electronically stored information (ESI)?
  • How can you use metadata to establish that an employee or competitor has stolen your information?
  • How should you handle metadata to protect your company from claims of misappropriating another company’s trade secrets or proprietary information?
