Robert Milligan authored an article in the Daily Journal, “Remote Workforces Increase Pressure On Keeping Trade Secrets Protected.”

The Seyfarth partner said that with more workers accessing, disclosing, using, and creating company information from their homes, prudent company leaders must ensure that they have appropriate procedures, training, and safeguards in place to protect company trade secrets. The article addresses five key considerations: 1) assessment of existing policies and agreements and making necessary updates; 2) employee training and education; 3) assessment of high-risk business segments and scenarios; 4) onboarding and departures; and 5) return to work.
