Presented by the Trade Secrets Interest Group.
Many companies have enacted new remote working policies, plans, and procedures, often without much thought given to the protection of trade secrets and proprietary information. Indeed, in their haste to provide work-from-home resources and accessibility, some companies are apparently loosening their security standards to allow faster and more convenient access for employees. Apart from any internal threat, there are bad actors taking advantage of the current situation. Relaxed security make systems and information far more susceptible to hacking and other data breaches. Thoughtful companies will want remote policies that remind employees of their obligations to keep company information secret, maintaining rigorous authentication processes in place to prohibit unauthorized access to company data, prohibiting and restricting the use of unauthorized third party cloud storage sites, and utilizing appropriate software to protect company data. Join our experienced panel for a through discussion of best practices.
