How high is your risk of losing your trade secrets?


Company questionnaire to implement the Directive (EU) 2016/943 of the European Parliament on the protection of undisclosed know-how and business information (trade secrets) against their unlawful acquisition, use, and disclosure. Are our trade secrets protected by appropriate measures? Whether this concern is justified or not is clear from a small risk assessment. Answering the following questions helps us to adapt the ILPA program scope in your company, which identifies the actual risk potential and defines appropriate countermeasures!

Do you mainly produce standard products or standard services or do you carry out the production or implementation according to customer requirements?
What is the purchased share of third parties (suppliers, subcontractors, etc.) in your products and/or services?
Do parts of the manufacturing or the provision of products and/or services take place abroad?
Does your company also have locations or subsidiaries in other countries outside the country of origin?
What is the international share measured by the total company in other EU countries?
What is the international share measured on the entire company in third countries?
Do you work with temporary workers or external staff?
Do you have separate price lists of your products and/or services in each market?
Do you make the bigger part of your turnover with a smaller range of products and/or services?
Do you make the bigger share of your sales with a smaller customer segment?
