28 May 2015

16.30 - 18.00

European Chamber Shanghai Office, Unit 2204, 333 Huai Hai Middle Road, Shui On Plaza, Shanghai

With the tremendous amount of values associated with cross border technology projects between Europe and China, it is of vital importance to protect the know-how generated against any misappropriation by third parties or by insiders.

Warren Wayne, Head of Bird & Bird's International Trade Secrets Group will present a case study highlighting current trade secret protection in Europe & China, the dramatic changes to European laws expected in 2015 & the implication for businesses in China. He will be joined by Andrew Macintosh, Associate Director from Control Risks, who will also share experience in data protection, as well as the immediate steps to be taken in order to secure and collect crucial evidence in the event of a data breach.
