April 3rd, 12:00-1:00pm and PricewaterhouseCoopers have just issued a new report entitled Economic Impact of Trade Secret Theft: A Framework for Companies to Safeguard Trade Secrets and Mitigate Potential Threats. The report urges companies to invest in new measures designed to identify and mitigate their exposure to trade secret theft. It also is designed to raise awareness of potential vulnerabilities and the threat actors who could be targeting enterprises.

On April 3rd, Pamela Passman of and George Prokop of PwC will discuss insights from their report and how companies can best mitigate their vulnerabilities.

Topics will include:

  • Where are the greatest threats? Steps companies can take to conduct a threat analysis of the types of actors that have been responsible until now for misappropriating trade secrets and the actors that are likely to do so in the future.
  • What should companies do now? Review of a five-step framework that helps companies assess trade secrets; rank the risks among key threat actors – from insiders to organized crime, hacktivists and foreign governments; put an economic value on trade secrets; and take steps to mitigate the risks of theft or infringement.
  • What are future scenarios that companies should consider? A futures analysis—reflecting workshops with industry, government, and academic experts—that presents future scenarios looking at threats in the coming 10-15 years.

The webcast will be moderated by Ethisphere.
