On May 12, 2020, Christopher K. Larus and David A. Prange will present a webinar titled, “Protecting Confidential Information When Sheltering-in-Place and Returning to Work: Strategies for Avoiding The Loss of Company Secrets,” with Celesq AttorneysEd Center and West LegalEdCenter. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused dramatic shifts in the workplace. Companies have been forced to rapidly adjust their policies to enable employees to work from home, have quickly adopted new technologies to maintain business operations, and have seen unprecedented levels of employee mobility. Each of these changes have increased the risks of trade secret misappropriation and the loss of other valuable confidential information. The termination of shelter-in-place directives and reversion to the on-site workplace presents further risks to company confidential information now shared to facilitate distanced activities. This presentation will address these increased risks and discuss best practices for protecting trade secret and other confidential information as companies and their legal departments plan their return to on-site work.
