Continuing the flow of innovative security awareness materials, we have released another completely new NoticeBored Classic module about protecting trade secrets. This module complements and extends May’s module on insider threats and June’s on privacy and data protection. Organizations need to protect valuable information assets including sensitive commercial or proprietary information such as descriptions of their unique business processes and ingredients, customer lists, product and corporate development plans, financial models and results. The module looks at practices ranging from competitive intelligence at one end of the ethics/legality scale to industrial espionage and information warfare at the other, covering all points in between. It’s important to realize that competitors may not share our moral values and respect for the law so do pay attention: forewarned is forearmed!
