Confidentiality, Intellectual Property Protection, and Information Security

Confidentiality, Intellectual Property Protection, and Information Security

As business has become more wired, more global, and more dependent on the appropriate exchange of information, the need to protect company-specific information has increased dramatically. Information relates to all areas of the business and is provided by computer systems, paper documents, and personal communication. Much of this information is proprietary and classified as either a trade secret or confidential information, including information relating to a company’s research, production knowledge, development efforts, financial position, and personnel information. Most companies consider proprietary and confidential information an important asset and expect their employees to help protect this information. The protection of proprietary information and intellectual property (IP) is the responsibility of every employee. IP is the intangible property or asset of a company and includes sensitive information, ideas, methods, processes, and production techniques. Employees can take steps to ensure that sensitive information is protected and maintained. These steps require attention, cooperation, and care.
