On December 18th, 2018, we 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.
