Speaker, myLawCLE, "Mitigating Financial Services Trade Secret Theft by Rogue Employees"


April 25, 2017 | 10:00 AM - April 25, 2017 | 12:00 PM EST

The rogue insider employee with access to trade secrets is among the greatest, growing threat to financial services companies and investors. In an era of rapidly advancing information technology, rogue insiders can do far more damage far more quickly, and critical asset loss can occur in seconds. Gone are the days of physical security being adequate to protect the organization. The threat of critical asset theft or misuse through cloud-based and other technologies is now ever present.

Mark Sidoti and Jeffrey Nagel, specialists in complex commercial litigation, will discuss the current business environment and the steps companies can take to prevent, mitigate and respond to critical financial services asset theft by insiders. The discussion will focus on: (1) identifying the trade secrets, critical IP and other confidential information assets that require protection; (2) understanding the nature of the assets typically targeted and the who is likely to target them, (3) instituting and maintaining employment and operational safeguards for those critical assets and (4) determining the steps to take in the event of a breach of duty or security involving those assets.

This course is co-sponsored by Wolters Kluwer.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Identification of Trade Secrets and Critical Assets
  • Assets Most often Misappropriated
  • Common Misappropriators
  • Operational Safeguards For Critical Assets (“Reasonable measures”)
  • Steps in the Event of Breach
