  1. Does your company have an employee handbook that contains a policy concerning confidentiality of information to which employees have access?
  2. Does your company have key employees with access to your company’s confidential information sign confidentiality agreement, non-competition agreements or non-solicitation agreements?
  3. Does your company have business partners sign confidentiality agreements or non-disclosure agreements?
  4. Does your company have your employees acknowledge receipt of the employee handbook and reaffirm that acknowledgment annually?
  5. Does your company password-protect its computer data?
  6. Does your company keep physical files containing trade secrets or other confidential information under lock and key?
  7. If you have employees sign non-competition agreements or non-solicitation agreements, have you had those agreements reviewed by an attorney for enforceability under Connecticut law?
