Most businesses know they need to protect their trade secrets. They are less sure what kind of information they need to protect, and what is the best way to protect it.
‘If You Have A Picnic, There Will Be Ants’
Employers need to know that valuable information will tend to be leaked. As the saying goes, if you have a picnic, there will be ants. Examples of valuable trade secrets would be your list of customers or vendors, marketing plans, proprietary formulas and manufacturing methods. In order to be considered protectable, the information must have demonstrable value.
Finally, to be classified as a true trade secret, the law requires the implementation of certain business procedures and practices. Norred Law PLLC is adept at advising on what procedures to implement to protect trade secrets.
