With the rise in cybercrime and the Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act now in place, trade secrets have taken center stage. Because there is no trade secrets registration procedure at the state or federal level, any effort to protect trade secret rights means identifying just what it is that gives a company its competitive advantage.
