Have data breaches made protecting trade secrets and intellectual property more difficult?
Cybersecurity threats have created the greatest challenges for companies in protecting both their own valuable trade secrets and third-party secrets maintained under nondisclosure agreements. 
This new risk landscape requires vigilance regarding evolving cybersecurity standards of care, effective trade secret identification and marking, and use of enforceable nondisclosure agreements with employees, commercial partners and vendors.
Businesses must also constantly assess commercially practicable strategies for secure information technology solutions, employee training and review of available cybersecurity insurance options.
