Speaker: Matteo Valles | Retired Special Agent, FBI
Are your company Trade Secrets safe ? What are the threats and the impact if stolen ? How can Human Resource professionals help their company protect its Trade Secrets ? There is an ongoing and concerted effort to acquire the Trade Secrets of U.S. businesses, to include proprietary technology, prototypes, R&D, merger & acquisition plans, customer list & pricing, and so much more. This poses not only a threat to the targeted business, but to U.S. economic security. Whether your company employs dedicated security professionals or not, Human Resource personnel must be aware of the threat and play a critical role in any successful effort to safeguard that which is most critical to the company’s success. Matteo Valles, former Special Agent of the FBI for 30+ years, will highlight previous cases and discuss the risks, methods employed by adversaries, the insider threat, and strategies to safeguard your corporate Trade Secrets.
