In a recent interview, the Information Security Media Group (ISMG) featured Troutman Sanders partner Ron Raether, who lent his comments regarding the verdict Epic Systems obtained against Tata Consultancy involving the misuse of trade secrets.  Ron discusses how customary data security controls can be used beyond protecting personally identifiable information to also protect intellectual property.  Additionally, he says, “its now important to lock down your trade secrets and make certain that whatever controls that youve determined are the appropriate level [for PII] are equally applied to your trade secrets.”
