Join us on Tuesday 13th April at Baker McKenzie Wong & Leow to discuss Misappropriation of Confidential Information.


Against the backdrop of advances in modern technology, it has become significantly easier to access, copy and disseminate vast amounts of confidential information. Errant employees who wish to misappropriate confidential information can do so almost instantaneously, without the owner of such information being any the wiser. The challenges of securing a company’s confidential information have become exacerbated in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increased risk of misappropriation and cyber security threats that come with employees working remotely.

In this event, Andy Leck, Head of Intellectual Property & Technology at Baker McKenzie Wong & Leow, will cover:

  • The revised legal framework for breach of confidence claims and its practical implications on future breach of confidence claims
  • Practical tips on how companies should deal with errant (ex-) employees who have misappropriated a company's confidential information
  • Best practices to prevent such incidents from occurring, and the procedures every company should have in place to respond to such incidents
