Monitoring the Revolving Door:
Protecting Your Trade Secrets in Today’s Economy
November 5, 2009

Seyfarth Shaw’s Trade Secrets, Computer Fraud, and Non-Competes Group is pleased to announce a comprehensive webinar series on trade secrets, computer fraud, and non-competes in today’s economy.

The first webinar will cover best practices for protecting your company’s trade secrets and managing risk from trade secret claims. Employer downsizing and competitive pressures have increased the need for companies to ensure that they have adequate protections in place to safeguard company assets. Rarely does a day go by without a news report of another high profile theft of important data from a company or the loss of key employees to competitors.

Topics slated for discussion in the first of our series of informative discussions include: 

  • Identifying trade secrets
  • Adequately protecting trade secrets  
  • Conducting trade secret “audits”
  • Implementing effective trade secrets policies and procedures

Date: November 5, 2009

10 am – 11:30 am Pacific
11:00 am – 12:30 pm Mountain
12:00 pm – 1:30 pm Central
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm Eastern
