The U.S. Congress has estimated that "U.S. companies annually suffer billions of dollars in losses due to the theft of their trade secrets by employees, corporate competitors, and even foreign governments." Thefts of valuable business and technical information are increasingly difficult to detect because of advances in cyberspace and mobile communication.

The program is geared toward in-house and outside counsel and is designed to guide practitioners in forming a comprehensive scheme to protect trade secrets as well as understanding the options for enforcement.

Our panel of experts will address what types of information can be protected by a trade secret, trade secrets in the employment context, protection and enforcement under the new federal Defend Trade Secrets Act and state law as well as parallel protections such as patents and copyrights, when to seek criminal enforcement, and enforcement of foreign trade secret theft before the International Trade Commission.
