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.
