Another Thoughtful Trade Secrets Piece in the Wake of Coke

From Canada's Business Edge, another good piece assessing the fall-out from the Coke case and new directions taken by companies which have finally woken up to the issue.

One quote: "It's something that's made everyone I know their hair stand on end," said corporate security consultant Richard Heffernan, who works for trade group ASIS International.

The article notes that "[s]tealing trade secrets is not uncommon in a competitive corporate culture where heavy premiums are placed on bringing an innovative new product to the market first."

It will be interesting to see if the Coke case really does represent a watershed in companies' thinking about trade secrets or whether they'll all go back to sleep in a couple of weeks.
