Protection of your trade secrets comes in several forms, ranging from hands-on physical protection to digital protection to legal protection. At Zacco, we have the expertise to advise you on all aspects of protecting your trade secrets.
What is a trade secret?A trade secret may be defined as information, which is secret in the sense that it is not generally known among or readily accessible to persons within the circles that normally deal with the kind of information in question.
