Taking the "Shhh" out of Trade Secrets: What Counsel Should Know about Protecting the "Secret Sauce"

Program Number: 2440 Presenter: Aaron Tantleff, Esq.

The concept of “trade secrets” and everything relating to them--defining what they are and how they can be used, who they can be shared with and how, understanding and valuing them, and protecting them from industrial espionage or misuse by departing employees—has always been somewhat nebulous in principle and even more so in practice. While most companies claim to have trade secrets, and need to protect those secrets to maintain their competitive advantages and unique elements, unless they are obvious secrets, such as the formula for Coca-Cola or “the Colonel’s” 11 herbs and spices, it can be difficult to document just what is a trade secret and the law will not necessarily recognize it as such. With the emergence of a worldwide economy, globalization, development of information networks capable of rapidly moving sensitive data, and the increased focus on new technology as a business driver, a company’s legal

Cyber-Insurance: Should In-House Counsel Consider Data Breach Insurance Legally and Practically Necessary?

Program Number: 2436 Presenter: David A. Zetoony, Esq.

“Data breaches” have become daily events and are consistently ranked by general counsel and corporate boards as one of the top five concerns impacting the business. In order to deal with this rising risk, companies are increasingly considering “cyber-insurance” policies as a solution, and are asking in-house counsel to help evaluate the benefit of these policies for mitigating— or ameliorating—the legal risks. While a good cyber-insurance policy can help mitigate the cost of a data breach, looking at the coverage limit alone can be very misleading. Following a data breach companies often discover that the insurance that they purchased does not cover, or only partially covers, the potential costs and legal liabilities that come with data security breaches. Join Bryan Cave partner David Zetoony, who provides valuable guidance for in-house counsel to (1) understand the types of data breaches that impact companies, (2) estimate the legal and defense costs that may
