What Constitutes a Trade Secret?
Any type of information that is uniquely known to a business entity and that is guarded by that entity can constitute a trade secret. This may include customer lists, client information, databases, secret formulas, manufacturing processes, or any other type of information.
This information is often expensive to develop, and can provide a company with important business advantages. If a disgruntled employee decides to take this information and provide it to your competitors, the consequences can be devastating to your company unless you take the proper remedial measures to protect your trade secrets.
How Are Trade Secrets Protected?
To develop and maintain a trade secret that will be enforceable in a courtroom, you must institute adequate precautions. These precautions should be taken throughout the life of your business. For example, your employees should sign non-disclosure agreements, and information such as customer lists should only be provided to those people who truly need the information.
