What are trade secrets? Does my company need trade secrets?
Business Intellectual Property.
Trade secrets are one of your most valuable IP rights yet most companies have not taken simple steps to identify, value and protect them
You don’t really have trade secrets until you have a trade secrets programme…
……..including a register of trade secrets, employees who recognise and know how to treat trade secrets and contracts in place with 3rd parties that respect and protect trade secrets, etc.
If you were involved in defending your trade secrets rights in court and the judge asked you how the person who had ‘leaked’ them knew they were trade secrets in the first place? Would you be able to point to a policy, training programme, contracts, systematic marking of confidential information etc. or……?
Trade secrets are not so well understood. This means companies are missing out on the benefits of trade secret protection.
It is relatively straight forward to protect trade secrets but it does require a bit of work
