The Intersection of Trade Secrets and Data Security

David Myers, Buckingham, Doolittle & Burroughs, LLC 

Please join us on Tuesday, February 27, 2024, for our next CLE event. This month’s CLE will be held from 12:00 to 1:15 pm via webinar. We anticipate 1.00 General CLE credit in Ohio for this event.

In an ideal world, every business would have top level security that would never allow a data breach or the disclosure of trade secrets. Unfortunately, that is not the reality, and companies of all sizes struggle with how to balance the value of their trade secrets and data, the strict regulations regarding data privacy, and the practical security measures that are available to protect their confidential information. 

Our speaker will be David Myers of Buckingham, Doolittle & Burroughs, LLC. David will address all of these topics and more, pulling from his significant experience running a technology consulting company and his current practice where he advises clients of all sizes regarding their cybersecurity, data privacy, and technology law issues. David will discuss the challenges that businesses face in prioritizing protection and how those decisions can later affect business partnerships. David will also provide recommendations on how to evaluate data security provisions in commercial contracts in a practical and beneficial manner that attempt to balance “what we want” versus “what we can reasonably expect to have”.

The webinar event will be approximately 60 minutes.

Registration is:

  • free for CincyIP members, 
  • free for students and academics, and 
  • $15.00 for non-members. 

Register here by Monday, February 26, 2024, at 5:00 PM. CincyIP will send a webinar link to all registrants after event registration closes.
