This event will feature Government, Industry and Legal subject matter experts in technology development and trade secrets. The most valuable asset most companies have are their trade secrets – confidential information about their clients, about their business and manufacturing processes, or any other confidential information that gives those companies a competitive edge in the marketplace. Learn how companies can structure themselves to protect their trade secrets and still get their ideas incorporated into the final product of a Prime Contractor. Attorneys will also discuss how the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) can help in protecting trade secrets from foreign threats.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear MG Bingham, Commanding General of TACOM LCMC, discuss the importance of Collaboration!
