On June 10, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, Erik Weibust and Michael Kippins will be presenting a free webinar for the Boston Bar Association entitled “Protecting Trade Secrets in the Face of Remote Workforces, New Technology, and Laid Off Employees.”.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and in response to what many are calling the “new normal,” companies have rolled out new (and often unsecure) technology, and have relaxed existing security measures in the name of efficiency and convenience. As companies continue to adapt to these rapidly changing circumstances, they may inadvertently place the protection of their trade secrets on the backburner. However, if companies want to maintain control over their most important intangible assets, they must affirmatively act to protect their trade secrets during the pandemic and as the economy continues to reopen.
During this webinar, Erik and Michael will discuss heightened threats to trade secrets as a result of COVID-19; what constitutes “reasonable measures” to protect trade secrets in this new environment; enforcing non-competes during times of high unemployment; preparing for and pursuing trade secret litigation while courts are largely shut down; and succeeding in a post-pandemic world.
