Secrets — The London Business School is conducting an online trade secret survey. This benchmarking exercise is intended to enable companies to compare and contrast their trade secret asset management programs against other companies, said Kazuhiro Matsumoto of the London Business School.
The survey is anonymous, and the details of the participating companies are kept hidden, he added. The online survey will remain open until the end of November for any company who wishes to participate.
Matsumoto developed the survey in light of the recently passed Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA) in the US and the EU Trade Secrets Directive was adopted on 26 May 2016 by the European Council.
Trade secrets are now becoming more critical in business. However, there is an issue of how to manage trade secrets properly, said Matsumoto. “This survey creates a benchmark of trade secret asset management, which helps companies improve their management,” he added.
Here is a document that Matsumoto prepared about the survey
