IT groups take the lead in crafting and detailing security policies, but involvement by the legal team is helpful for a common understanding of legal requirements for maintaining proprietary information and trade secret protection, and for the legal team to understand the strengths and limitations of the tools available. It also allows the groups to be able to communicate in a shared language and establish cybersecurity procedures that help to effectively protect commercial advantages.
