An employee who takes confidential corporate information from his or her previous employer and uses it within your company can “infect” your entire organization in a heartbeat. This creates a serious risk of punitive sanctions and untold damages against your company. Recent high-profile cases have highlighted the seriousness with which the courts view the misuse of confidential corporate information by competitors. Come hear our experts address the legal and practical issues, including:

  • What is considered “confidential”?
  • What is fair game and what is not?
  • How to protect your organization
