Gerry Elman and Josh Waterston’s DPAC Presentation on Trade Secrets – December 18, 2018

On December 18th, 2018, Gerry Elman and Josh Waterston hosted a discussion with the Data Protection Advisory Council, on the topic of Trade Secrets: an Essential Element of Your Intellectual Property Strategy.

Companies generally have records of their intellectual property ('IP') in the categories of patent, trademark, and copyright. But most overlook the value of their data that would qualify for protection as trade secrets. Because trade secrets don't get registered with a government agency, they're the red-headed stepchild in the IP family. Yet when your company assesses and documents its trade secrets, you enhance their protection against misappropriation. Gerry Elman and Josh Waterston of Elman Technology Law, P.C., shared a roadmap for making this a part of your comprehensive data protection strategy. Companies can learn how to get the benefit of trade secret protection not only under longstanding local state law, but also under a comparatively new federal statute – the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016.

The issues are as current as recent headlines:

  • Was your voting machine hacked??? Presidential candidate Jill Stein has asked for a recount in Pennsylvania.
  • On October 21, 2016, consumers were unable to reach Netflix, Twitter, CNN and several other well-known websites. This was because Dyn, a provider of core Internet services for these sites, was in the midst of a global Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack via a botnet composed of malware-infected IoT devices such as DVRs, home monitors, and webcams.
  • How private are your personal details when your Fitbit or Apple Watch broadcasts your heart rate and GPS location?
  • Is our safety and privacy being sacrificed during the rapid spread of Internet-connected gizmos such as TV sets, security cameras, thermostats, refrigerators and even front door locks?

Join us to explore these issues, and to learn about efforts to address them by Congress, government agencies, and private standards-development companies such as UL.
