    Defining a risk-based, scalable, & sustainable approach to 3rd party monitoring Robert Huff, Managing Director, North America Recorded: Jun 15 2017 60 mins
    Regulators have been unequivocal in their expectation that companies know who they are doing business with. While pre-onboarding due diligence on third parties has become the cornerstone of most compliance programs, many companies are still feeling their way toward integrating effective post-onboarding monitoring strategies. Join Kroll's experts for an interactive discussion of steps you can take and resources you can leverage to define and execute a sustainable approach to third party monitoring.
  • How to get more insight from design patents
    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
    3. Design patents in the patent world
    4. Kinds of design patents
    5. Principle designs
    6. Related designs
    7. Partial designs
    8. Assembly designs
    9. Graphical user interfaces
    10. International treaties
    11. Searching design patents
    12. Design patent valuation

    This webinar is essential viewing for patent searchers and patent data users who are seeing more activity involving design patents and want to ensure they have the correct protection.
  • 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?

  • Using patent valuation data to measure the ROI of R&D
    Using patent valuation data to measure the ROI of R&D Dr. Dierk-Oliver Kiehne, CEO at InTraCoM GmbH | hosted by Jessie Parker at patsnap.com Recorded: May 23 2017 60 mins
    R&D represents a significant investment for most companies, but innovation leaders often struggle to accurately measure the output of their R&D activities. The number of new product launches, or revenue generated from products developed through R&D are too simplistic, and can make it difficult to justify investment in long-term R&D projects.

    Dr Dierk-Oliver Kiehne, CEO at InTraCoM GmbH, a leading patent valuation consultancy, joins us for a live webinar where he will discuss how patent valuation data can be used to analyse the output of R&D activities.

    He will explore:
    - How patent valuation data can be used to measure R&D efficiency
    - Why it makes sense to use an indicator approach to patent valuation
    - Examples of companies who are achieving extremely capital-efficient R&D
    - Other ways that IP value can be used to drive corporate strategy

    This webinar is essential viewing for all R&D leaders who are interested in understanding patent valuations and measuring the ROI of their R&D activity.

  • 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.

  • Intellectual Property in China: Myth and Reality
    Intellectual Property in China: Myth and Reality Ian Harvey, former CEO, BTG plc and Course Professor, Tsinghua University, Beijing| Hosted by patsnap.com Recorded: Apr 5 2017 60 mins
    China is becoming one of the major technology and patent generators and are already filing more patents than the US and Europe. It is essential for intellectual property owners to understand the truth and the myths surrounding IP in China, and this webinar is essential listening for any individual or company looking to better understand intellectual property rights in China.

    In this webinar, you will learn that IP and its enforcement in China is much more advanced than most people realise:
    1. IP law in China is of a high quality by global standards.
    2. The quality, cost and timeliness of the “rights” (patents and trademarks) granted to foreign firms under Chinese law compare well with the rest of the world.
    3. Enforcement of patent rights is much cheaper and faster than in most developed countries. The courts, including the IP Tribunal of the Supreme Court, are handing down some very sophisticated judgement.
    4. About 95% of the foreign companies litigating their patents in China win their cases

    To dive deeper into this topic, we will be joined by our guest speaker, Ian Harvey, former CEO, BTG plc and Course Professor, Tsinghua University, Beijing. He is currently involved in development of IP in China and is pressing for the teaching of IP as part of a strategy in business school programmes worldwide.

  • 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 Jun 22 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 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 unearth the billion dollar idea you didn't know you had
    How to unearth the billion dollar idea you didn't know you had Hosted by Timi Olotu at patsnap.com Jul 12 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Once you get into the groove of generating ideas and prototypes, it's easy to build a scrapheap of forgotten ideas. Maybe your R&D team cooked up something that didn't work for its intended purpose... but does that mean it doesn't have value when applied to solve a different problem or within another division?

    For example, Xerox created Xerox Technology Ventures (XTV) to recycle "abandoned" ideas... and it saw great success. This programme led to the profitable launch of initiatives like the Advanced Work Station (AWS)—a project that had previously been deemed unfit for purpose.

    Join our webinar as we discuss:

    - Tips for unearthing the gems buried in your pile of abandoned ideas
    - Strategies for effectively monetising these ideas.

    Collaborating with your competitors Hosted by Jessie Parker at patsnap.com Jul 19 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Competition with competitors is something almost every business experiences every day. Staying one step ahead, and outdoing those who are trying to do the same to you has its benefits, but is it what the future of business looks like?

    Are you wasting too much energy looking over your shoulder, and not enough on accelerating innovation?

    Join the discussion as we explore:

    - The advantages and disadvantages of collaborating with your competitors
    - Successful companies that are already doing it
    - Simple steps to get the ball rolling and establishing partnerships
  • Is your CEO an innovation bottleneck?
    Is your CEO an innovation bottleneck? Hosted by Kirsty Bell at patsnap.com Aug 2 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Innovation is a board-level agenda item. A recent McKinsey study revealed that 70 percent of senior executives said that innovation will be one of the top three drivers of growth for their companies in the next three to five years.

    Companies who innovate effectively can bring new products to market faster, find it easier to attract and retain customers, and can even enjoy a higher share price as a result.

    But not every CEO is well equipped to effectively align people, processes, technology and market forces to create successful innovation. And in many companies, the CEO can actually become an innovation bottleneck, potentially suffocating creativity, and making it more difficult for the company to bring innovative products and services to market at the right time.

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    - What makes certain CEOs better equipped to lead innovative companies
    - Simple ways to identify if your CEO is stifling innovation
    - Common mistakes CEOs make that leads to poor innovation performance
    - Strategies R&D leaders can use to improve communication with bottleneck CEOs and empower their team to innovate.
  • 5 things IP and R&D teams should never hide from each other
    5 things IP and R&D teams should never hide from each other Hosted by Timi Olotu 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 two leading industry experts from the world of R&D and IP, and get their 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.

  • The life and death of your innovation ideas
    The life and death of your innovation ideas Hosted by Jessie Parker at patsnap.com Aug 16 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    When it comes to innovation, we often only see the end product of a successful idea, and this got us thinking, what about everything in between? What about those ideas that didn't quite make the cut?

    Join PatSnap and a panel of innovation leaders as we discuss some of the worlds best and worst innovation ideas. We'll also explore:
  • Why the stage-gate process is killing your innovation strategy
    Why the stage-gate process is killing your innovation strategy Hosted by Timi Olotu 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.
