Definition Edit

Proprietary technology and economic information is

information not within the public domain and that which the owner has taken some measures to protect.[1]

Overview Edit

Generally, such information concerns U.S. business and economic resources, activities, research and development, policies, and critical technologies. Although it may be unclassified, the loss of this information could adversely affect the ability of the United States to compete in the world marketplace and could have a detrimental effect on the U.S. economy, ultimately weakening national security. Commonly referred to as "trade secrets," this information typically is protected under both state and federal laws.[2]
