My companies NDA has this line
Individuals shall not, directly or indirectly, disseminate, make available, disclose, or use any reason other than performance of their job with the Company, any confidential information or proprietary data of the Company, unless and only to the extent such release or disclosure is required by any court or administrative agency (and then only after prompt notice to the Company to permit the Company to seek a protective order).
I can't help but think what that part in parenthesis means. If I were to for whatever reason be in court as a witness testifying against my employer, based on the NDA it sounds like any time a lawyer asked a question I'd have to defer to the my company to object to the question per the wording of the NDA. Similarly if I were subpoenaed for information regarding my company, I'd have to bring my employers lawyer along.
Is this a correct interpretation?
(It should be noted, this scenarios are theoretical, I don't know of anything I might get subpoenaed about)
