Companies cannot simply react to these real business risks to their data after the data is compromised. By then, it’s too late.

To address these recurrent issues, Mr. Beyer helps clients protect their important assets and effectively manage risk by conducting trade secret audits.

Key topics to be discussed:

•   Identifying trade secrets and secrecy protections
•   Effective secrecy protections, including employment and non-compete agreements
•   Effective hiring and termination protocols, including effective exit interviews and termination protocols
•   Employing a comprehensive approach and trade secret protection plan
•   Managing and working to protect computer-stored data, including responding to emergency issues related to computer fraud and security breaches

“Live” Re-Broadcasts
“Live” Re-broadcasts are replays of previous recorded CLE programs, set on a specific date and time and where the original presenting speakers calls in live at the end of the event to answer questions. This “live” element allows for “live” Re-broadcast CLEs to qualify for “Live” CLE credits in most states. [The following states DO NOT allow for “live” CLE credits on re-broadcast CLEs: NM and LA.]

These CLEs can be viewed at anytime and only qualify for self-study CLE credits.
