It may concern any confidential but useful information, such as innovative ideas, commercial projects, formula, process of manufacturing products, data, source code, list of clients, price of sale etc. However, their protection has always been difficult: balancing the need to know with sufficient access control on trade secrets; finding a good middle ground between privacy and the security of trade secrets.
