I have the privilege of having been invited to speak at the 37th Annual IP Institute for the California State Bar on “”Protecting and Maintaining Trade Secrets and Confidential Information In The Age of Social Media and Cloud Computing.”  The presentation is this Friday, November 9, 2012 at 9:45 a.m. at the Omni Hotel in San Diego.

I will be joining Intel Corporation’s Janet Craycroft and Seyfarth Shaw’s Robert Milligan on the panel.  Janet is the Director of Legal Counseling for Intel where she has coordinated a number of high profile trade secret cases, including the prosecution of former Intel engineer Biswamohan Pani; Janet is also the new Chair of the Trade Secrets Law Committee of the American Intellectual Property Law Association.  Robert is the editor of one of my favorite trade secret blogs, Seyfarth Shaw’s Trading Secrets Blog, and a leading trade secret litigator in Los Angeles.  I am truly honored by the opportunity to speak with Janet and Robert. 

Janet, Robert and I will be covering a number of intriguing issues in trade secret law, including recent developments and best practices in social media, emerging cybersecurity issues for law firms and legal departments, and the special challenges of managing your trade secrets in the world of cloud computing.  It should be a fun discussion with a great panel on fascinating issues that are fast developing in the trade secret area.

Registration for the IP Institute can be found here.  Look forward to meeting some of my California readers and seeing lovely San Diego.
