  • Are Your Third Party Vendors Exposing Your Organization to Cyber Threats?
    Are Your Third Party Vendors Exposing Your Organization to Cyber Threats? Eric Olson, LookingGlass Vice President of Intelligence Operations and Nick Hayes, Forrester Senior Analyst – Security & Risk Recorded: Oct 18 2017 59 mins
    By now, the majority of us have likely been inundated with stories about third party data breaches and how one vendor’s vulnerability can cost your organization millions. But how do you know if you’re doing enough to stop third party risk?

    As we enter 2018, new U.S. and European cyber regulations are going into effect, and organizations can no longer check the box when it comes to their vendors’ cybersecurity. You are not only liable for knowing where you are most at-risk, but now you must also understand how that risk affects your organization and identify a solution for mitigating that risk.

    This webinar features guest speaker Nick Hayes, Senior Analyst at Forrester and LookingGlass VP of Intelligence Operations Eric Olson. They will delve into the third party risk landscape: our current state of affairs, and where the industry is moving, as well as how you can take a different approach to third party risk prevention, including:
    • How to see where your vendors are already compromised
    • The importance of actionable intelligence for real-time mitigation
    • Why a continuous monitoring solution is the future of third party risk
  • How to identify the most valuable patents in your portfolio
    How to identify the most valuable patents in your portfolio Dr. Dierk-Oliver Kiehne | InTraCoM GmbH and Ruta Sudmantaite from patsnap.com Recorded: Oct 17 2017 61 mins
    Intellectual property can account for 70% of a company’s value, but how can you be sure that you’re protecting the right patents. Being able to sift through your IP and pick out the gems amongst it can be a challenge, however, with the right strategic mindset, it can be done.

    PatSnap is very excited to welcome back Dr Dierk Oliver Kiehne CEO of leading patent valuation consultancy, InTraCoM GmbH. He’ll be sharing best practises and success stories of others being able to draw out their most valuable assets, and learning when it’s time to let go. This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leaders who want to get the most value from their intellectual property, and make sure only the best of the best has a place in their portfolio.
  • How to engage senior management in patent strategy and corporate value creation
    How to engage senior management in patent strategy and corporate value creation Anthony Trippe, Managing Director at Patinformatics & Ruta Sudmantaite from patsnap.com Recorded: Oct 11 2017 58 mins
    In many companies the patent department is seen as a cost center, managed by attorneys, and seen as a necessary evil by corporate executives. In truly innovative companies the patent function is seen as a profit center, and is imperative for the delivering maximum shareholder value for the organization. These companies use patent analytics to understand the technology environment they operate in, and make certain that they are taking maximum advantage of the investment they make in research and development and the patenting process.

    These organizations also have highly engaged corporate executives that are actively involved in the development of the company’s patent portfolio. Patent professionals in these organizations use the principles of diversification, and risk management, concepts that are well understood by senior management to bring these critical participants into the development of the company’s patent strategy.

    We will be joined by Anthony Trippe, Managing Director at Patinformatics, who was also recently named as one of the Top 300 IP Strategists by IAM Magazine. He will be sharing examples of how patent analytics can be used to understand technology environments, and competitors will be combined with a discussion on risk and diversification as a framework for building patent portfolios that enable corporate objectives and financial goals.

    ASEAN connections: Cross-border M&A Richard Dailly, Managing Director and Head of Southeast Asia, Kroll Recorded: Sep 12 2017 63 mins
    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.

  • Why the stage-gate process is killing your innovation strategy?
    Why the stage-gate process is killing your innovation strategy? Presented by Robert Weidner MD of DMInc | Hosted by Ruta at patsnap.com Recorded: Aug 23 2017 38 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.

  • 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 Laura Schoppe at Fuentek | Hosted by Ruta Sudmantaite at patsnap.com Recorded: Aug 9 2017 43 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.

    It’s believed that 9 out of 10 start ups fail every year.

  • 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.
