Most employeers are astounded at how easily and quickly their proprietary information can get out of their control. In a large number of cases, theft of trade secrets often involves employees leaving a company to start their own business or work for a direct competitor.

Nearly all books that address the topic of trade secrets have the “spy vs. spy perspective. The author approaches the topic from a practical business perspective and not simply creating “paranoia for paranoia’s sake. The material for this book comes from the author’s extensive work experience as a computer forensics consultant and manager on numerous theft of trade secrets cases.
  • No-nonsense solutions to the most common intellectual property problems facing security managers, computer security professionals, corporate legal counsel, and human resource managers
  • Sample agreements and forms that address specific business needs
  • Coverage of threats ranging from physical security lapses to hackers to social engineering
