Safeguarding your trade secrets

01 April 2015

Your trade secrets are valuable business assets, but retain their value only if they remain secret. Your business will suffer if they are published inadvertently or without your permission — or if a competitor steals them.

This presentation outlines what trade secrets are, how they can be used instead of or to complement patent protection, how they should be managed in a business environment to protect them from unauthorized use or dissemination by both your employees and outside parties, and how to protect them through litigation if they are stolen.
