100074 – Identifying and Protecting Trade Secrets
Identifying and Protecting Trade Secrets prepares employees to correctly identify and appropriately protect organizational and third-party trade secrets.
This course establishes a baseline understanding of what type of information constitutes a trade secret and reinforces the serious consequences of the loss, theft, or misuse of trade secret information. Employees are empowered to take reasonable steps to appropriately protect the trade secrets of their organization, including when sharing internally and externally and after departure. The course also emphasizes taking steps to protect the trade secrets of other organizations and third parties such as vendors, suppliers, partners, and former employers. Finally, the course elaborates on the importance of reporting actual or suspected trade secret compromise and outlines the policy against non-retaliation for reporting in good faith.
