AIPLA CLE Webinar: Protecting Confidential Information in the Evolving Workplace: Strategies for Avoiding the Loss of Company Secrets
November 10, 2020 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
1.5 CLE Credits Available
Companies have been forced to adjust policies to enable employees to work from home and have adopted new technologies to maintain business operations. Now, as states lift shelter-in-place directives, companies revert to on-site workplaces or establish more permanent virtual models, and rates of employee mobility rise, the risk of trade secret misappropriation and the loss of other valuable confidential information has perhaps never been greater. In this presentation, panelists will help in-house counsel foresee the pitfalls associated with these dramatic shifts in the workplace and share proven strategies for protecting company secrets in 2020 and beyond.
