Intellectual property & reputation

How "porous" is your enterprise?  Do you know what confidential information is leaking out and available to competitors or other organisations?  This is not just about physical or electronic security, it is also about legal registration and protection of your ideas and inventions.  

Who you employ, how you screen and monitor them and what levels of access people have to sensitive data are all factors in safeguardng the current and future potential value to be derived from your innovations.  Beyond your own perimeters your reputation is working for you, but that needs protecting too. If a crisis arises, how well are you prepared and equipped to manage the fallout and to preserve important relationships?
