Too often cyber security is viewed as an issue relevant only for businesses holding customer data. The reality is quite different. Hackers often target a company’s intellectual property, including formulas, patents, designs, and marketing strategies. The loss of key IP can significantly affect M&A valuations, company competitiveness, and even the viability of a business.

While data breaches can be initiated by external hacks or internal staff, either maliciously or negligently, your IP is frequently at risk by the people you trust most: employees and vendors.

Learn best practices from experts who have had to defend against cyber theft, evaluate companies for the risk of cyber theft, respond to and investigate theft-related breaches or seek legal remedy to recover losses.
