Most employers are astounded at how easily and quickly proprietary information can get out of their control.

An effective security program is the surest way to protect a business from intellectual property theft, and the contents of this book will help security managers understand and address the dangers that face them. This text outlines threats to trade secrets that are commonly overlooked by security professionals and shows specific, concrete steps to minimize these threats.
