Social Networking & Trade Secrets: Essential Lessons to Protect Your Company
Attorneys Chris Stief and Mike Greco hosted a webinar entitled "Social Networking & Trade Secrets: Essential Lessons to Protect Your Company" on March 15, 2011.
The use of online social media is becoming increasingly prevalent, and as a consequence, employees are often very casual about what they say and do online. They frequently share information first, and think about the consequences later. Any business that does not have a solid contract, a sound social networking policy, or does not train its employees on the do’s and don’ts of social networking may have a critical security gap in the protection of its trade secrets and its confidential information.
In the webinar, Chris and Mike explored steps employers can take to address this growing threat.
