Five Tips to Protect Your Business with a Confidentiality Agreement

Most small business owners are familiar with the two most prevalent uses for confidentiality agreements: (1) when tire-kicking a competitor’s business prior to making an offer; or (2) when hiring a key employee who will have access to your confidential information. However, many entrepreneurs ignore the need for confidentiality agreements in their day-to-day business, as they share their company's customer lists and business strategies with outsiders. Any time information will be shared with an outsider, you should consider executing a confidentiality agreement.
