The enactment of the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) in 2016 has provided federal jurisdiction for trade secrets claims, which allowed owners with misappropriated trade secrets to file complaints in the federal court. Since its passage, a notable rise of trade secrets claims has been reported with 1, 134 cases in 2017 from the average number of 900 cases filed in the previous years. It is possible that this might upsurge in the unpredictable future; thus, businesses must keep abreast of the recent developments in the DTSA. They must proactively review their procedures and safeguard their sensitive documents by ensuring intellectual property protection to avoid trade secrets liabilities.
Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of Defend Trade Secrets Act in the 2019 landscape. Speakers will provide an in-depth analysis of the DTSA litigation trends and developments. They will also present risk issues and share best strategies in managing trade secrets to prevent pitfalls.
