New Jersey Intellectual Property Law Association (NJIPLA)
To say that trade secret protection and cybersecurity are growing in importance would be an understatement. Information continues to become more valuable yet more accessible and transferrable. How do you protect your client from the evolving practice of trade secret protection and cybersecurity? Whether in a law firm or practicing in-house, your client relies on your expertise to implement certain measures - some proactive and some reactive. Please join us in our half-day program where you will learn from lead practitioners in trade secret and cybersecurity law on how to spot the latest issues and legal protection mechanisms that are available in this evolving area.
Ken will discuss what in-house attorneys should focus on so that their company takes adequate efforts to maintain the secrecy of its valuable information, and how to react if information is suspected of being misappropriated.
Brian L. Levine is a Senior Counsel with the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Law Section (CCIPS) at the U.S. Department of Justice, and National Coordinator for more than 270 federal prosecutors who specialize in computer crime and intellectual property crime. Brian was one of the lead prosecutors in the first U.S. criminal trial of a PRC entity for theft of trade secrets, Sinovel Wind Group Co. Ltd. After an eleven-day jury trial, the company was convicted of a trade secret theft that nearly destroyed an American company.
Brian will discuss the current threat environment, the role of the Department of Justice in cybercrime and IP, developing relationship with law enforcement before an incident, the importance of involving law enforcement as soon as an incident occurs, and common concerns regarding involvement of law enforcement with an emphasis on the ethical considerations.
