Dean's Law of Trade Secrets and Privacy 3rd ed provides essential guidance through the law regarding personal, institutional and corporate privacy in Australia. This long-awaited new edition assists readers to better protect commercially-sensitive and private, personal information by understanding the principles of two related and changing areas of law.

Protection of trade secrets is essential to business development. Similarly, protection of personal information is subject to increasingly complex privacy regulation. This work addresses the obligations in both areas, and the overlap.

Evolving technology creates risk for businesses and individuals, yet regulation may trail behind developments. A practitioner or company with a clear grasp of relevant legal principles and practice is better equipped to develop strategies for safeguarding against breaches of confidence.

Since the Second Edition published in 2002, the challenges to personal, institutional and corporate privacy have proliferated. Compliance with confidentiality laws is now complicated by jurisdictional issues arising from the use of modern communication technology, including social media.
