What is a Non-Disclosure/Confidentiality Agreement?

A non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement is a contract made between a company and it employees, contractors, vendors and other third-parties who may come into contact or learn about sensitive company information — such an agreement regulates what and how information can be shared outside of the organization. When designing these types of agreements, it is important to outline:

  • Contract duration. How long the contract will be in effect.
  • Protected information terms. Define what types of, and specific kids of, information the contract will cover.
  • What constitutes a violation of the contract. Give specific information about what is and is not permissible to be shared, used, published, etc.
  • Procedures for contract violation. Specifically state the procedures that will take place after the contract has been violated, including any possible legal action.

Having these agreements in place before employment has started is the best way to ensure compliance and to protect your information.
