Protecting trade secrets in the energy sector under the Defend Trade Secrets Act

Breakfast seminar

June 20, 2017 | 7:15 am - 9:00 am CT | Houston, TX, US | Accreditation 1.25 CLE

Although immensely valuable, the efforts expended to properly protect trade secrets is usually less than robust.

This provides opportunities for employees, third-party vendors, and outsiders to take those proprietary secrets, and the value that comes with them, and use them for themselves. A typical frustration of companies is the difficulty in determining what a company's trade secrets actually are, where they are located within the organization, and therefore what protections should be in place to keep them "secret."

Please join us as we discuss these issues and how they relate to the energy industry and your company.
