In the age of instantaneous communication, it is getting harder and harder to keep anything a secret. Every company needs to safeguard its trade secrets and its confidential information from non-related stakeholders. It is insufficient by getting all employees to sign non-disclosure agreement as employees involved may not know what constitute confidential information. The employee may unintentionally share “confidential information” with fellow colleagues, clients, friends and family during a small talk over lunch, dinner or gatherings.
