Stopping Trade Secret Theft
(May 4, 2014)

When an employee leaves for a competing organization, how can the company be sure that their information remains safe? In this case study, we will look at one Ohio company concerned about its information being held confidential by an ex-employee. The ex-employee represented to the company and its attorneys that he did not and would not use the company's information. Examination of the ex-employee's activity raised concerns and through the process of litigation, the ex-employee's computer systems were produced for examination, resulting in the finding of the company's information in its competitor's systems. The process led to a change in testimony, and a federal judge's order preventing the ex-employee from competing with the company. The case study will discuss how companies can prepare for addressing these issues.
