How do I protect my business trade secrets?

Trade secrets can include, for example, customer data, business plans, product information, manufacturing processes, and technical or operational know-how. Unlike other forms of intellectual property, trade secrets cannot be registered.

If you use trade secrets in your business, it is essential to take the necessary steps to safeguard those secrets.
