Nonprofit organizations maintain a large amount of confidential information, including donor information, member lists, confidential documents, and trade secrets. Increasingly, nonprofits find that this critical information has been misappropriated by employees or others. Organizations need to be careful in taking steps to protect this information and in taking appropriate actions when such information has been misappropriated. This seminar will cover the following topics, which should be of interest to all nonprofit organizations:

  • Why more trade secret lawsuits are being filed
  • What information is entitled to trade secret status
  • How to minimize loss of trade secret status and theft of confidential information
  • How to minimize being accused of misappropriating someone else's trade secrets
  • How to deal with employee theft of confidential information

Specific examples applicable to nonprofits will be provided in this discussion led by Venable attorneys Chris Borello and Nick Reiter.
