  • IP considerations and due diligence when investing in start-ups IP considerations and due diligence when investing in start-ups Duncan Clark, Head of Product Marketing at PatSnap & Jon Calvert, Managing Director at ClearViewIP Recorded: Nov 9 2016 46 mins
    Prior to making an investment in a start-up, investors look to ensure that the team, product, and market aspects are all strong. They then carry out due diligence to expose and plan for potential risks. These usually include financial and legal risks, but more and more investors are focusing on intellectual property too.

    PatSnap will be teaming up with Jon Calvert, Managing Director at ClearView IP, to discuss what aspects should be considered when beginning due diligence and how a rigorous approach can secure a greater likelihood of realising substantial investment returns.

    In this webinar we will explore:

    - What kind of intellectual property does a startup actually have?
    - How do I know if the intellectual property position is strong?
    - What kind of things should be on my intellectual property due diligence check list?
    - How can I put a financial value on the intellectual property?

    In 2015, charitable donations to colleges and universities reached an all-time high of $40.3 billion. As university endowments seek greater returns in a diverse international marketplace, the challenges from investing in funds in high-risk jurisdictions increase exponentially.

    Join Kroll Associate Managing Director John Arvanitis and guest Michael A. Lukasek, CPA, Managing Director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Office of Investments, to discuss how to build a world-class compliance program for endowments. Participants in this webinar will gain insights into topics including:

    How to establish protocols in preparation for the compliance requirements of the changing regulatory environment.

    Three reasons why you join us on July 15

    1. Regulatory regimes around the world are evolving and expanding. Higher education endowments must ensure compliance with not only all federal and state laws, but increasingly, foreign regulations as well.
    2. Recently, a number of legislative proposals have been advanced that seek to regulate endowment activity and revoke tax-exempt status, leading to heightened scrutiny of and public visibility into endowments and their activities.
    3. Expanding into high-return but high-risk jurisdictions can also intensify reputational risks to institutions.

    Vietnam continues to be a major foreign direct investment destination in Asia Pacific. The country has positive macro-economic factors demonstrated by its solid and continued GDP growth, a number of free trade agreements, improving infrastructure and a young demographic and low labor costs which has encouraged businesses to relocate there. However, there remain a number of potential uncertainties and risks for inbound investors given the new government administration following the Communist Party of Vietnam’s 12th National Congress in January. The geo-political situation around the South China Sea is also an issue for those operating in Vietnam, and limitations in obtaining information and disclosures can present challenges to parties executing transactions.

    Join Kroll and Duane Morris to learn about the risks and opportunities offered by Vietnam. Richard Dailly, Managing Director at Kroll, Giles Cooper, Partner, and Manfred Otto, Associate at Duane Morris will share more about Vietnam as an investment destination, what the legal and political risks are of doing business there and how the new administration and free trade agreements could affect inward foreign investment.

    How to defend against digital hijack of your business data, and what to do if you get hit

    Cyber criminals have discovered the perfect tool to force modern business owners into the vice of extortion – drop malware onto an unsuspecting network to encrypt all the data and demand payment to provide the key to unlock the data. The attacked business has two choices; either lose access to years of data or pay a ransom to get the data back. The cyber criminals bank on the fact that businesses will pay to rescue their hijacked data.

    Such attacks or ransomware are on the rise, fuelled by successful extortion payments. The types of businesses being targeted are expanding, and the delivery methods used to infect systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated. There are also many different types of malware now available; Crypto Wall also known as Crowti, Crypto Locker, FakeBSOD and The FBI scam.

    Preparation is essential to surviving such attacks and monitoring of systems is needed to prevent them.

  • Investigating human trafficking in supply chains Investigating human trafficking in supply chains Richard Dailly, Kroll Managing Director Recorded: Jan 27 2016 52 mins
    Identifying social compliance issues, particularly forced labor and human trafficking in supply chains, continues to be a significant problem for business, particularly when sourcing from opaque and non-transparent emerging markets. Civil society is playing a large part in increasing awareness and pressuring politicians to introduce and enforce legislation, and is gradually highlighting the issue as a problem which needs to be addressed both by governments and the business community.

    Kroll has been researching and working on this issue for a number of years and believes that businesses should be taking the issue as seriously as other forms of compliance.
  • Next Generation Data Breach Response: Preparing Your C-Suite and Board Next Generation Data Breach Response: Preparing Your C-Suite and Board King & Spalding, Rite Aid, and Kroll Dec 8 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In today’s complex and ever-changing security landscape, every C-Suite and Board knows of cyber risk, but what does it really mean to be prepared to respond to a data breach incident? Top executives do not have to become cyber security experts, but they must make sure their organization’s breach response plans and strategies are defined and set. While they will not directly lead technical, legal and notification efforts to address data breaches, they do need to act as internal champions of proper planning and prevention.

    Identifying and closing security gaps, directing communication channels, and developing and regularly testing incident response plans are as important now as managing any other business risk or concern. Therefore, company leadership must take charge and direct their organizations to conduct extensive preparation efforts to mitigate those risks and make certain everyone stands ready to execute against the established procedures and policies when a breach occurs.
    In this webinar, you will hear from experts who have been on the inside and outside of data breach response efforts. You will learn:

    •Why the C-Suite and Board need to champion planning and prevention efforts.
    •How to get Executive buy-in.
    •Ways to build stronger response structures from the top.
    •How to construct response architectures. Who needs to be responsible for what?
    •Cyber Risk – What are the latest threats and what does the C-Suite and Board need to understand?
    •Developing and directing an Incident Response Plan: Where do the C-Suite and Board fit in?
    •Examples our experts have seen – the good and the bad

    Whether operating in the region or conducting business through third parties, the shifting risk and regulatory landscape in Latin America poses many challenges. With local nuances, a one-size-fits-all approach to compliance and due diligence might do little more than provide a false sense of security.

    Join Kroll's experts as they discuss the changing risk environment in Latin America and the potential implications on your risk mitigation and due diligence programs in the region.

    Agenda:

    - Corruption risks and trends in Latin America

    - Understanding local nuances: What you need to know when conducting business with third parties in the region

    - Best practices for risk mitigation and due diligence

  • Commercialising IP: Bridging the gap between academia and industry Commercialising IP: Bridging the gap between academia and industry Bruno Reynolds, Senior Consultant at Isis Enterprise, Ben Oakley, Consultant at Isis Enterprise Dec 13 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Resource constraints, financial and human, mean that most universities simply do not have the luxury of being able to back every research commercialisation opportunity. Therefore, it is essential to develop a strategy and process that optimises the chances of backing winners, be it to maximise the financial return or to address the non-financial impact agenda.


    PatSnap will be teaming up Isis Enterprise, the innovation consultancy division of Oxford University Innovation, to discuss some key measures that can be taken to identify promising commercialisation projects that are underpinned by strong intellectual property. We will also be providing insight on methods for trimming and shaping academic patent portfolios so that they are optimised for strong overall returns.

    Gene Quinn and special guests look back at the most important moments of 2016, and consider the issues that look set to shape the patent industry in 2017

    It is that time once again when we look back on the previous year in preparation to close the final chapter on 2016, and we begin to look ahead and ask what is in store for the new year.

    Gene Quinn, patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com, will moderate this discussion, alongside a panel of very special guests.

    Join us as we discuss:

    2016: The Year of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board – From the Supreme Court deciding Cuozzo, to the Federal Circuit spending much of the year rubber stamping the PTAB, it has been a rollercoaster year.

    2016: Software Patents Strike Back – A series of Federal Circuit decisions post-Alice have started to provide meaningful insight into how software can be described so that it will be considered patent eligible.

    2017: Regulatory Reform NOT Patent Reform – Patent reform will almost certainly not be a top priority for the Trump Administration, but regulatory reforms to the PTAB could be seen and may be quite significant and beneficial to patent owners.

    2017: Supreme Court to Decide Samsung v. Apple - The decision will either validate the value of design patents or make design patents virtually worthless.
