About: With the enactment of the Defend Trade Secrets Act (“DTSA”) earlier this year, manufacturers now have a new tool to protect and enforce their trade secrets. But what does the passage of the DTSA mean for manufacturers? What provisions does the new law provide? What steps do companies need to take to prevent trade secret theft?

During this hour-long program, a panel of manufacturing, legal and policy experts will address these questions and provide tips and strategies to help manufacturers maintain and grow their competitive edge.
