SFE is delighted to invite you to a breakfast briefing with leading Scottish law firm Burness Paull looking at the insider threat to financial services organisations of loss of data, trade secrets and other intellectual property.

The session will cover:

  • How to mitigate this risk through appropriate confidentiality provisions, policies and practices;
  • The importance of invention capture policies;
  • What to do if you suspect an employee or consultant is removing material from your organisation
  • When do you need to report such data loss to the FCA?;
  • The steps which can be taken to mitigate the effect of a data or trade secrets leak.

The session will be led by Colin Hulme, head of Burness Paull LLP’s contentious IP practice, which protects iconic Scottish brands such as Harris Tweed, the Scottish FA, SRU and Highland Spring.  His team also manages BSkyB and Phonographic Performance Limited/PPL’s copyright enforcement campaigns in Scotland. 

Colin has a Band 1 ranking in the Chambers & Partners Directory, is recognised as an IP/IT “Leading Individual” in the Legal 500 Directory and as an “IP Star” in Managing IP.  Colin is also accredited as an IP specialist by the Law Society of Scotland and has an LLM in IT and Telecommunications Law.

Colin has extensive experience advising clients who are faced with data loss which includes acting against employees and contractors who have misappropriated confidential and sensitive information to those whose servers have been hacked by foreign military powers.
