To Catch a Data Thief: the First 30 Days

Pete Gillespie will review proactive steps that management, and the attorneys who advise management, should consider when it suspects that a disloyal employee is jumping ship and perhaps taking company information and data.  The program will cover both legal and business strategies for confirming when a business has been subjected to unfair business practices and responding to unfair competition.  Topics will include best practices for agreements and policies covering confidential information and trade secrets, evidence preservation, forensic investigations, and possible legal claims to defend against unfair competition.

Pete Gillespie is Of Counsel to the Chicago Office of Fisher & Phillips LLP, a national labor and employment firm representing management.  Pete litigates and provides counseling nationwide to employers concerning legal claims and issues arising from the movement of employees between competing businesses.  Pete counsels employers on developing workplace privacy policies, policies and agreements covering the protection of confidential information, trade secrets and customer relationships, as well as "best practices" with respect to the management and retention of electronic information.  Pete is a Co-Chair of the Social Media Committee of the American Bar Association Section of Science & Technology Law.

A dial-in will be provided by the day before the conference for those who can't be there in person.  Please indicate on an RSVP if you plan to attend in person.

    I look forward to this meetup, particularly with regard to management and retention of electronic information. My new company, BioScynz, will provide services to members in the life sciences; thus, it goes without saying that BioScynz will have much to safeguard. Thank you in advance for this meetup!
