Summary Law of Trade Secrets and Privacy Third Edition provides essential guidance through the law regarding personal, institutional and corporate privacy. It assists readers to better protect commercially sensitive, and private and personal information, by understanding the underlying principles of two related and rapidly changing areas of law. Protection of trade secrets is an integral part of business development. Similarly, protection of personal information is becoming increasingly complex under expanding privacy regulation. This book addresses the obligations in both areas, including the overlap. A practitioner or company with a clear grasp of relevant legal principles and practice is better equipped to develop strategies for safeguarding against breaches of confidence. Law of Trade Secrets and Privacy Third Edition is extracted from the subscription service Trade Secrets and Privacy, maintained by privacy and data protection specialist lawyer, Gordon Hughes. It is an essential and affordable resource for every company, institution and individual with privacy concerns
