For as long as there has been commerce, there has been espionage. The methods for spying on competitors have changed over time, but the desire to uncover or steal a rival’s trade secrets has not!
Evidence of the ability of individuals, both inside employees and outside contractors, to cause damage and even destroy a company continues to grow, with a reported global cost of $455 billion annually.
What has come to be known as "Insider Threat" has been ranked as the third most significant U.S. risk, surpassed only by business interruptions and supply chain risks, (ranked #1), and natural catastrophes (ranked #2).
Organizations rely heavily on Intellectual Property (IP). In order for most organizations to succeed and to maintain a competitive edge, measures must be taken to protect these assets which include inventions, discoveries, works of authorship, proprietary techniques and business information or "Trade Secrets."

Encompassed in our training are the basic concepts and understanding of Intellectual Property, the laws protecting it, and means to avoid any potential consequences resulting from a possible infraction of applicable laws.
