An employer’s guide to protecting confidential info

McAfee & Taft Webinar Series

A company’s ability to protect its confidential information, including trade secrets, can often determine whether that business thrives or dies. And we’re not just talking about safeguarding the recipe to the “secret sauce.” Depending on the nature of your business, a lot of other types of confidential information — business processes, customer lists, financial data, development strategies, and proprietary research, just to name a few — could be at risk.

During this one-hour complimentary webinar, McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorneys Courtney Bru and Charlie Plumb and intellectual property attorney Zach Oubre discuss what types of information must be safeguarded, highlight the steps necessary to ensure such information isn’t intentionally or accidentally disclosed or breached, and offer practical advice for dealing with employees and third parties who may handle your company’s sensitive information. They’ll also review case studies of what can go wrong when policies and procedures aren’t created, followed or enforced.

Topics include:

  • What types of information can be legally protected?
  • What types of policies and agreements should employers have in place?
  • Best practices for safeguarding confidential information among your on-site and remote employees.
  • Taking responsibility for protecting the confidential information of customers, vendors and other third parties.
  • Best practices for making sure your information doesn’t leave with a departing employee.
  • Tips for determining whether your business has protectable information.


Based on the feedback we’ve received from past event surveys, we have been working on developing a webinar format that will provide a higher quality viewing and listening experience that is also compatible with more of the devices people use everyday — from desktop and laptop computers to smartphones and tablets. With the recent launch of the JurisIQ Learning Center, we are now able to deliver that viewing experience. These webinars will no longer be broadcast live at a specific time, but pre-recorded and released for on-demand viewing at your convenience.
