Here’s a brief description of the seminar: Mergers and acquisitions are predicted to increase for small and medium sized businesses in the coming years. Relative to merger, research indicates that a company’s value can be significantly increased if its assets, such as key employees, intellectual property and data, are properly protected. Similar results can occur with proper protection even without the occurrence of an M and A. Our seminar focuses on protecting your business’ intellectual property, human resources, your data and digital assets to increase your company’s value.
