  • Best key practices for GDPR and utilizing IncMan™ Incident Response platform
    Best key practices for GDPR and utilizing IncMan™ Incident Response platform Mike Fowler, Vice President, Professional Services and Steve Ditmore, Senior Sales Engineer for DFLabs Recorded: Apr 26 2017 34 mins
    The GDPR will apply in all EU member states in May 2018, organizations and businesses that are data owners and/or dealing with data belonging to EU citizens have the responsibility to ensure their processing abides by new data protection law and processors must themselves abide by rules to maintain records of their processing activities. If organizations and businesses are involved in a data breach, they are far more liable under GDPR than they were under the Data Protection Act.

    Complying with the new regulations requires operating to high standards of data security and protection. If suffering a data breach that puts the rights and freedoms of individuals at risk, organizations must notify the people affected and the data protection authority (Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in the UK) within 72 hours of becoming aware of it. Data breaches occur every day - and the EU have just increased the financial liability and consequences of inadequate security.

    Hear from Mike Fowler, author of the popular white paper: Automation as a Force Multiplier in Cyber Incident Response. Mike will provide insight into how best to leverage automation to provide incident response and reporting consistency for GDPR.

    Steve Ditmore will present IncMan™ – Security Automation and Orchestration features covering:

    •Installation and set-up is measured in hours rather than days or weeks without the need for expensive professional services support.
    •Review steps involved in a mitigating and controlling a data breach.
    •Automation of menial enrichment activities, so incident responders can determine/contain and mitigate breaches more efficiently and effectively.
    •Enhanced visibility creating a layered approach to information gathering.
    •Incident management including response prioritization.
    •How incident and notification workflows are automatically assigned to an incident.

  • 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.

  • Privilege: Shifting Sands, Protecting Information in Cross-Border Investigations
    Privilege: Shifting Sands, Protecting Information in Cross-Border Investigations Satindar Dogra (Partner, London) and Adam Lurie (Partner, Washington D.C.), Linklaters LLP May 3 2017 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    With cross-border enforcement on the rise, companies must consider what information, if any, to provide to various regulators. But that’s only the start of the challenge. Having decided to provide information, companies must carefully consider how to protect their privileged and otherwise protected information, including information subject to data protection law.

    This GIR Live webinar will break down these challenges as well as looking at various strategies that companies can take to protect that which is privileged or protected when interacting with regulators around the world.

    In the GIR Live style, the webinar will aim to be highly conversational and will include time for a question and answer session with the presenters.

    Issues to be addressed include:
    •How to protect privilege and data privacy during an internal investigation in response to a regulator.
    •How to interact with regulators while preserving privilege and data protection rules.
    • How do legal privileges and data privacy protections vary between key jurisdictions?
    •How does increasing cross-jurisdictional cooperation between regulators impact these considerations?
    •What recent developments should practitioners should be aware of?
  • Workflow management: Ensuring collaboration between IP and R&D teams
    Workflow management: Ensuring collaboration between IP and R&D teams Jarrod Britton, Head of Product support at patsnap.com May 3 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Many people believe R&D and IP can no longer work independently. Although they are in different departments, their goals are essentially the same and both are responsible for shaping and realising a company’s vision. Working separately leads to qualitative filing without having an intact strategy.

    Jarrod Britton, Head of Product Support at PatSnap will be exploring possible workflow management tools and systems to ensure maximum collaboration within your organisation.

    - Why collaboration is crucial for both IP and R&D
    - Top tips for workflow management & establishing a collaborative IP strategy

    Bigger Isn't Always Better: Assessing Cyber Risk to Reduce Your Attack Surface Eric Olson, VP of Intelligence Operations, and James Carnall, VP Cyber Security Center May 10 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ransomware, spear phishing and third party breaches have become a huge problem as organizations become more connected online and expand their cyber footprint. When even the largest and most
    sophisticated global organizations, government agencies, and multinational banks are routinely penetrated and taken offline by cyber criminals, how can a concerned enterprise quickly and cost-effectively evaluate their own risk?

    During this webinar, Vice President of Intelligence Operations, Eric Olson, and VP of Cyber Security Center, James Carnall, will discuss how organizations can evaluate their internal and third party cyber risk to:

    · Minimize your attack surface for increased visibility
    · Make smarter and more cost-effective investments in your security posture
    · Proactively look for potential leaks, theft of sensitive data or other holes in your security posture
  • 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 May 23 2017 3:00 pm UTC 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.
  • GDPR vs Trump vs Brexit vs Privacy Shield – how can you protect your data?
    GDPR vs Trump vs Brexit vs Privacy Shield – how can you protect your data? FRA’s co-founders; Toby Duthie, Frances McLeod and Greg Mason May 30 2017 2:30 pm UTC 75 mins
    With Safe Harbor being invalidated, EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield (“Shield”) yet to be tested, the outcome of Brexit being unknown, General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) coming into effect next year, and the Trump administration putting a spin on all the above – the uncertainty surrounding the current regulatory environment will inevitably add complexity to the issue of data transfers, especially in the context of investigations and disputes – and, by extension eDiscovery.

    As regulatory investigations and related processes frequently span several years, strategic decisions made today around data transfers will have important ramifications down the line. Do you know where your/your client’s data currently is hosted and if it is being held in accordance with the various and, at times, conflicting data privacy laws? If the answer is 'no', significant reputation and even financial implications could develop.

  • 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 Kirsty Bell at patsnap.com Jun 22 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    R&D is an expensive business – Research and Development spend in the UK was £31.6 billion in 2015, and R&D expenditure represented 1.68% of GDP, up from 1.66% in 2014 (source: ONS).

    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.
