Last week, we highlighted our colleagues’ post in Crowell’s Trade Secrets Trends focusing on recent comments submitted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce regarding the need to stem the cyber theft of intellectual property.  Today, we once again turn to our sister blog to highlight an example of how that theft plays out in the private sector.  The post overviews a recent trade secrets case that stems from an all too frequent fact pattern – the insider threat.  Cases like this serve as useful reminders about the benefits of an insider risk program and data loss prevention tools.
