What is a Trade Secret?
A trade secret is broadly defined as information that grants an economic benefit to the holder of the trade secret because the information is not generally known to the public and where the holder makes efforts to maintain secrecy of the information. The exact definition varies from state to state, but most states follow the above definition (or something very close thereto).
Trade secrets can consist of formulas, processes, designs, instruments, patterns, practices, methods, or compilations of information.
Trade secrets can be protected through the creation and implementation of a trade secret protection plan. A trade secret protection plan will help you define what trade secrets you might own and how you can take reasonable steps to keep that information secret. Steps include alerting your employees that trade secrets exist, having employees sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, marking documents as “confidential”, etc.
