Open Secrets? Guarding value in the intangible economy

Global Launch

Past event
09 June 2021, 11:00 - 12:00 UTC +01:00

Across multiple industries, businesses are deriving an ever greater proportion of their value from assets protected not by patent or copyright – but by secrecy. And from customer data to software algorithms, these critical ‘trade secrets’ are under constant and growing threat.

Cyberattacks, corporate espionage and employee leaks are increasing in severity and complexity as more business is conducted online and across borders. So, what tools and strategies can companies use to safeguard their most secret and valuable intangible assets?

In wide-ranging new research commissioned from The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), CMS will show how trade secret protection is rising up the corporate agenda, the perceived key threats to safeguarding secrecy – and how companies around the world are taking action.

Key findings of the report presented Ailia Haider, Analyst at The Economist Intelligence Unit, including:    

  • Which are the most significant threats to the security of trade secrets? 
  • What are the biggest obstacles to safeguarding critical intangible assets?
  • What are considered effective practices for preventing potential threats?

The event offers audience Q&A, online networking opportunities and panel discussion with members of the CMS Trade Secrets taskforce which will explore the significance of the findings and implications for corporates worldwide.

The event is free and will be recorded. If you have any questions about the event, please contact us.
