  • Success Factors in Threat Intelligence: Part 3 - Key Elements
    Success Factors in Threat Intelligence: Part 3 - Key Elements Allan Thomson, Chief Technical Officer Recorded: Jul 19 2017 49 mins
    This series describes a comprehensive “business technical approach” to the justification, definition, design and execution of Threat Intelligence Programs.

    What do we mean by “business technical approach’ to Threat Intelligence?

    Much in the industry is focused solely on one technical aspect or another of threat intelligence data that indicates information about a specific malware family, a set of indicators that can be used to block malicious sites, campaign information that highlights a threat actors profile, their tactic, techniques and procedures. But much of the technically focused content do not discuss how organizations can gather or construct that information themselves, and even more so, how an organization would organize themselves to respond to such data. Much of the output of the industry is providing the fish to organizations rather than teaching the organizations how to fish themselves.

    A ‘business technical approach’ is one where we define an approach focused on the business needs, the organization personnel, organizational roles & responsibilities, team structure and those elements’ interaction with technology to address the challenge of successful threat intelligence operations. Our goal is to help organizations build effective Threat Intelligence programs.

    With Part 2, we introduced the overall vision of a successful TI Program. In this webinar, we dig into the key elements of the TI program with concrete examples, and key components of the program that must exist including the right team, process, tools, metrics and connections.

  • The business of R&D: How intellectual property can reduce your tax bill
    The business of R&D: How intellectual property can reduce your tax bill Brian Williamson, Managing Director of Jumpstart | hosted by Ruta Sudmantaite at patsnap.com Recorded: Jun 22 2017 53 mins
    R&D is an expensive business – Last year alone, UK companies invested £16.5 billion into research and development, which accounted for 4% of the total global spend.

    While 25% of R&D spend came from the higher education sector and 7% from Government and Research Councils, the majority - a massive 66% of this investment, was made by businesses. But there are easy ways that these companies could be accessing even more money to invest in R&D.

    Of course R&D delivers benefits in the form of process efficiencies, new products, intellectual property which can be protected and monetized, and is a is source of long term competitive advantage. But the UK government also encourages R&D through significant tax benefits – so why are so many businesses still not claiming enough tax relief for R&D?

    Brian Williamson, Managing Director at Jumpstart, the UK’s leading tax credit specialists, joins us for this webinar where he will discuss:

    - Why the government cares about R&D investment
    - The common “white coat” misconception companies have about R&D
    - How to get your accountant or auditor to think like a scientist
    - Why companies ranging from startups to multinational companies are leaving money on the table and the options available for claiming it back.

    This webinar is essential for any R&D leaders wanting to know more about how to manage their R&D budgets more effectively.

    How to get more insight from design patents Alan Engel, Paterra, Inc | hosted by Jessie Parker at patsnap.com Recorded: Jun 14 2017 46 mins
    Generally speaking, it is possible to protect the ornamentation and shape of an article.
    However, it will depend on the jurisdiction as to whether this falls within the genus of patent law, or a separate branch of intellectual property known as a design right.

    Graphical descriptions play an important role in helping to validate the originality of a proposed invention or design, as well as when searching for inspiration or similar patents. But are you getting the most valuable insight from your design patent data?

    PatSnap will be joined by Alan Engel, President of Paterra Inc, for a webinar which will cover a wide range of topics relating to design patents, focusing primarily on East Asia but will also touch on European and American industrial designs and design patents. Topics covered include:

    1. The rising importance of design
    2. Design patents in the design world

  • Success Factors in Threat Intelligence: Part 1 - Business Requirements
    Success Factors in Threat Intelligence: Part 1 - Business Requirements Allan Thomson, Chief Technical Officer Recorded: Jun 8 2017 46 mins
    This series describes a comprehensive “business technical approach” to the justification, definition, design and execution of Threat Intelligence Programs.

    Much in the industry is focused solely on one technical aspect or another of threat intelligence data that indicates information about a specific malware family, a set of indicators that can be used to block malicious sites, campaign information that highlights a threat actors profile, their tactic, techniques and procedures. But much of the technically focused content do not discuss how organizations can gather or construct that information themselves, and even more so, how an organization would organize themselves to respond to such data. Much of the output of the industry is providing the fish to organizations rather than teaching the organizations how to fish themselves.

    A ‘business technical approach’ is one where we define an approach focused on the business needs, the organization personnel, organizational roles & responsibilities, team structure and those elements’ interaction with technology to address the challenge of successful threat intelligence operations.

    In Part 1 we will examine what drives CISOs and organizations to consider adoption of a threat intelligence practice. CISO’s are focused on Risk reduction to their organizations but may not have a fully defined set of requirements on who, how, where Threat Intelligence can assist in that high-level goal. They may require a solid business case to justify the investment and have a supporting set of well-defined business and technical requirements. Some key questions help formulate the executive’s plan.
    -What are the costs of solving these requirements?
    -How can my organization’s revenue be protected while investing in TI?
    -What is the right balance of both tactical and strategic Threat Intelligence-driven responses?
    -Where can existing investments be leveraged?

  • Assessing Targeted Attacks in Incident Response Threat Correlation
    Assessing Targeted Attacks in Incident Response Threat Correlation Allan Thomson, CTO, and Jamison Day, Principal Data Science Engineer Recorded: Apr 12 2017 52 mins
    The current number of active cyber threats is astounding. Do you know which threats are targeting you right now and which threats are likely to cause greatest harm to your company?

    This session examines how correlating network flow data with cyber threat information during incident response provides knowledge of not only what threats are active or targeting you, but which of your assets are being targeted before or during an incident. We examine the many data types used in commonly-shared indicators of compromise and explore which provide for automating correlation with network flow data. The pros and cons of common correlation algorithms are discussed with a focus towards their contributions and limitations to enhancing threat intelligence efforts. Proper network flow correlation should provide a foundation for performing risk-based mitigation that identifies the threats that are creating the greatest loss of value for your organization rather than chasing down the threats deemed most harmful by the industry.

    5 things IP and R&D teams should never hide from each other Laura Schoppe at Fuentek | Hosted by Ruta Sudmantaite at patsnap.com Aug 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In many organisations, there is a widening gap in the communication between these departments; R&D may invent something with the intention of filing a patent only to find out later from the IP department of pre-existing IP which renders their research (and costs) effectively wasted.

    Here at PatSnap, our clients often tell us that the two teams can no longer work independently, so we thought we'd explore how to improve communication between the two divisions.

    We will be joined by Laura Schoppe an industry expert from the world of R&D and IP, and get her insight into the five most important things the two teams should never hide from each other.

    This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leader, across any division looking to improve cross team collaboration and flexibility.

    Why the stage-gate process is killing your innovation strategy? Presented by Robert Weidner MD of DMInc | Hosted by Ruta at patsnap.com Aug 23 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The stage-gate process is as ubiquitous in R&D as doors are in the real-world. But, like doors, stage-gate processes aren't always the best solution for filling a gap. They can be overly elaborate (leading to slowness), fixated on pruning rather optimising (leading to negativity), and lacking in flexibility (leading to missed opportunities).

    Join our webinar as we explore:

    - The shortcomings of the stage-gate process
    - Potential alternatives that could drive more efficiency and productivity

    This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leaders who are looking to take their innovation strategy out of its comfort zone and to the next level.
  • Success Factors in Threat Intelligence: Part 4 - Connecting the Dots
    Success Factors in Threat Intelligence: Part 4 - Connecting the Dots Allan Thomson, Chief Technical Officer Aug 24 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    This series describes a comprehensive “business technical approach” to the justification, definition, design and execution of Threat Intelligence Programs.

    What do we mean by “business technical approach’ to Threat Intelligence?

    Much in the industry is focused solely on one technical aspect or another of threat intelligence data that indicates information about a specific malware family, a set of indicators that can be used to block malicious sites, campaign information that highlights a threat actors profile, their tactic, techniques and procedures. But much of the technically focused content do not discuss how organizations can gather or construct that information themselves, and even more so, how an organization would organize themselves to respond to such data. Much of the output of the industry is providing the fish to organizations rather than teaching the organizations how to fish themselves.

    A ‘business technical approach’ is one where we define an approach focused on the business needs, the organization personnel, organizational roles & responsibilities, team structure and those elements’ interaction with technology to address the challenge of successful threat intelligence operations. Our goal is to help organizations build effective Threat Intelligence programs.

    In this final part of the CSO Series, we will describe how successful TI Programs can fully deliver on reducing risk in organizations. What does success look like for an effective TI Program when it is fully integrated into organizations security framework.

    Rich with investment opportunities and positive demographics — a young and dynamic population with growing disposable income and upward mobility — the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) continues to attract international acquirers.

    In 2016, the region recorded 534 M&A transactions valued at US$57.9bn, and Q1 2017 sustained the momentum with 118 deals worth US$14.7bn. This was a year-on-year increase of 8% in value and 7% in volume over the same period in 2016. For foreign inbound M&A, the ASEAN saw 223 deals worth US$23.7bn in 2016, a 10% rise in volume but a 16% drop in value from US$28.1bn (202 deals) in 2015. In 2017, volumes have remained relatively steady while values have shot up, with the first quarter registering as much as 45% of 2016’s annual total.
