  • How to make the IP system work for technology transfer
    How to make the IP system work for technology transfer Jeremy Holmes, Head of Intellectual Property at Imperial Innovations Recorded: Apr 18 2018 48 mins
    Technology transfer offices are often seen as the facilitators of innovation between academic institutions and industry. However, they have a massive responsibility to transfer the wealth of innovation from within universities to the commercial world, in the most timely and cost-efficient way possible. Does the current Intellectual Property system facilitate their requirements, or can it sometimes hinder innovation?

    In this webinar, we will be joined by Jeremy Holmes, Head of intellectual property at Imperial Innovations, the technology transfer office of Imperial College, London. Jeremy will be talking about the ingredients needed for a successful partnership, and future, between technology transfers and commercial world. We will also be discussing:

    • The power behind freedom to operate when making judgements on the commercial opportunity of an idea
    • Why education of IP is so important, for academics & business professionals
    • How to find the balance between freedom & creativity, with the need for intellectual property protection
    • Whether you need patents to have a successful university spin out.

  • Training Snapshot: Boolean Searching from CloudNine
    Training Snapshot: Boolean Searching from CloudNine Brian Kelley Recorded: Apr 12 2018 7 mins
    A snapshot demonstration of the process and syntax required to perform boolean searches within CloudNine to combine and connect multiple criteria properly using AND, OR or AND NOT operators.

    When performing searches, the ability to combine multiple criteria into a single search to be performed is key to help achieve a proper balance of recall and precision in that search. Using OR operators between search terms helps expand recall by retrieving documents that meet ANY of the criteria; while using AND or AND NOT operators between search terms help improve precision by only retrieving documents that are responsive if they include all terms (AND) or exclude certain terms (AND NOT). Boolean searching is an important part of efficient search and retrieval of documents to meet discovery requirements.

    The next big thing is here!

    According to Forbes, 38% of enterprises are already using AI technologies, and 62% will use AI technologies by 2018.

    The rise of AI points a spotlight at the need for integrating intelligent technologies into our business processes -- particularly around contracts. Creating effective automation rules is a necessity, as contracts are a critical component of business but are complex to create, difficult to negotiate, time-consuming to manage, and often create bottlenecks and slow-downs. Poor contract management can lead to lost work time (or more time spent on administrative, trivial tasks), slow contract and business cycles, longer time to revenue, loss of control, and greater risk.

    The accumulated effect of these problems has a very real effect on your bottom line.

    Business professionals in Legal, Procurement or Operations should join this webinar to learn how to:

    - Optimize and prepare for contract automation in order to maximize efficiency.
    - Prepare for contract automation in order to maximize efficiency.
    - Learn what maturity is and its impact on revenue growth.
    - Understand why companies are implementing intelligent automation.
    - Realize the cost-savings and benefits of automation.

    Automation is coming to your world - are you ready?

    Join Doug Rybacki, Conga VP of Product Management, Marilyn Salyer, Conga Sr. Solutions Engineer, and Tim Cummins, IACCM CEO, for a discussion on tips and tricks to thrive in tomorrow's automated world.

    Training Snapshot: Metadata Searching from CloudNine Brian Kelley Recorded: Mar 22 2018 7 mins
    A snapshot demonstration of the various options for searching metadata fields from within the CloudNine eDiscovery Platform to locate documents responsive to specific objective and subjective criteria.

    Metadata is key to the management, tracking, and retrieval of documents within the discovery process. Whether you wish to locate a document sent or received by a particular individual, filter a collection by a relevant date range or locate documents that have been marked as responsive or privileged, the ability to be able to search both the system metadata (that metadata that is extracted from the document when it is processed for review) and user metadata (that metadata used by legal professionals to categorize and track documents during the review and production steps in discovery) is key to being able to manage that document collection efficiently and effectively.

    Protect your innovations, products and business with IP insurance Erik Alsegard & Lewis Parle from CFC Underwriting | Ruta from PatSnap Recorded: Mar 21 2018 37 mins
    The primary reason why people register their IP - including trademarks patents - is to protect their ideas from being used and monetized by others. Companies across the world spend trillions of dollars on research and patent thousands of new technologies each year, so why would you ever need IP insurance?

    We see dozens of cases each year where companies and individuals are claiming infringement upon their IP and that's when IP insurance comes into play.

    PatSnap is joined by Erik Alsegard, IP Practice Leader and Lewis Parle, In-House Solicitor and IP Underwriter, from CFC Underwriting to discuss the whys and hows of IP Insurance.

  • Closing the Window on Fraud and Financial Crime
    Closing the Window on Fraud and Financial Crime Keith Lowry, SVP & Peter Evans, Sr. Information Security Consultant, Nuix Recorded: Mar 14 2018 42 mins
    Everyone’s been compromised. Financial services companies should just assume that’s the case. Yet, many companies still don’t have effective programs or inter-departmental policies and procedures in place. They measure the time it takes to identify a breach in months, sometimes years, and fraudulent transactions often go uncaught.

    However, there is hope. We will examine three distinct cases of financial fraud and, using investigations, eDiscovery, and cybersecurity tools in new ways, demonstrate how you can minimize your risk and limit the damage done to your organization.

    Attendees to this webinar will learn:

    • The differences, and similarities, between three distinct types of financial fraud using real-world examples
    • The business challenges that arise from not detecting or reacting to fraud and security incidents
    • How inter-departmental boundaries prohibit effective response
    • How to expand their use of traditional forensic, eDiscovery, and cybersecurity tools to shorten the time criminals have to operate.

  • Mitigating risk through IP strategy and innovation alignment
    Mitigating risk through IP strategy and innovation alignment Candice Landry from 10e5 Solutions | Jon Calvert from ClearViewIP | Jim Hinton from Bereskin & Parr Recorded: Mar 7 2018 60 mins
    The term innovation can refer to various stages within a product development cycle, and an invention created in this process can be protected by various forms of intellectual property. Most inventions are created to solve and address consumer needs and problems. To do that job, products enter the market, creating opportunities for the business or the inventor who owns it. A businesses’ IP strategy plays an important role in the success of a new product by ensuring competitive advantage in the market, for now and the future.

    However, IP protection can often be seen as an output of product development, leaving the organisation open to risk—whether it's in a new or an existing market. So how can you align IP protection with your invention creation to ensure your IP team is involved at the most effective points throughout the product development process? Too early could mean a slower time to market, and too late could mean lost opportunities in the market.

    In this webinar, we’ll be discussing how your organisation can mitigate risk, by aligning your IP and innovation strategy. We will also be looking at:

    - Examples of successful organisations who have aligned their IP and innovation
    - Intellectual property & open innovation
    - Why IP should be a part of the innovation process, not an event
  • Training Snapshot: Stemming and Synonym Searching from CloudNine
    Training Snapshot: Stemming and Synonym Searching from CloudNine Brian Kelley Recorded: Mar 6 2018 5 mins
    A snapshot demonstration of the process and syntax required to perform stemming and synonym searches within CloudNine to locate grammatical variations and synonyms of terms to catch additional potentially responsive hits for words that also may be responsive to your subject matter searches.

    When performing keyword searching, it may be difficult to think of every variation of a word to search for or other words that have the same meaning that may also be relevant. Stemming searching is a way to catch those variations of terms and Synonym searching is a way to catch other terms that mean essentially the same thing as the desired term. Both mechanisms help expand the potential recall of your search and enable you to locate additional important ESI to your case that might otherwise be missed, simply because those additional relevant terms weren’t identified.

  • Reducing Breach Costs with Early Detection and Rapid Response
    Reducing Breach Costs with Early Detection and Rapid Response Harlan Carvey Director of Intelligence Integration, at Nuix Apr 25 2018 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    It takes minutes to get inside. Days to exfiltrate. Detection can take weeks, maybe months. The impact is huge: lost revenue, increased costs, and damage to your organization’s brand.

    You can’t completely stop breaches from happening, but you can remediate the direct and indirect costs they can have on your organization. By taking a proactive stance, you can properly plan and budget for the costs associated with a breach. Through early detection and rapid response, you can obviate the need to notify affected customers and reduce the costs associated with notification.

    This webinar will cover:
    • How a “data breach” is defined, legislated, and how they occur
    • Direct and indirect costs facing organizations that are breached
    • Differences between “left of breach” (proactive approach) and “right of breach” (reactive approach) by exploring real-world examples
    • How early detection and rapid response can drive down the cost of a breach.

    About the presenters:

    Harlan Carvey, Director of Intelligence Integration
    Harlan began his career in information security 28 years ago. After serving on active duty with the United States military, he transitioned to planning, coordinating, and executing vulnerability assessments. He then went on to digital forensics and incident response, which in turn led to targeted threat hunting and response.

  • Are You Missing Critical Evidence? eDiscovery Search Accuracy with Craig Ball
    Are You Missing Critical Evidence? eDiscovery Search Accuracy with Craig Ball Craig Ball May 8 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    When it comes to eDiscovery, how can you ensure that you're finding what you're looking for? It starts with search accuracy.

    Ask any lawyer how important the accuracy of searches within an eDiscovery platform is to them. Nine times out of ten, the answer will be “It’s #1. It’s the most important.”

    Of course it is! If your search is faulty, then your entire case could be at risk. Indeed, unreliable searches could hurt your entire career, exposing you to potential sanctions, spoliation, and shame.

    In discovery, guaranteeing accurate, reliable searches should be a top priority. But often, legal professionals don’t realize what they’re missing, or how their approach to discovery, from their eDiscovery software to query construction, can impact the evidence available to them.

    Join us for this must-see webinar on search accuracy featuring Craig Ball, a trial lawyer, computer forensic examiner, law professor and noted authority on electronic evidence.

    Attendees will learn about:
    - How your discovery platform can dramatically impact your search accuracy
    - The importance of configuration, processing settings, query language and syntax
    - How to make sure the other side isn’t failing to produce important documents
    - Tips and tricks for improving your searches

    How to lay good groundwork before outsourcing an FTO search Dylan O. Adams, Senior Patent Attorney | Hosted by Ruta Sudmantaite from PatSnap May 9 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We know that companies who innovate and patent new technologies have an array of tools they use to research ideas, project manage and look at patent data. Often large and small organisations will depend on external law firms to complete and sign off final FTO searches. This can be expensive and time-consuming, especially considering that your lawyers won’t be technology experts like yourself.

    So how can you reduce the time and cost and increase the accuracy of your FTO searches? We are joined by Dylan Adams, Patent Attorney and best selling writer to talk about how to lay the groundwork for your FTO, whether you are using an in-house counsel team or an external law firm.

    This webinar will discuss:

    * How to effectively describe your invention to an attorney
    * What an attorney needs to make search quicker
    * Prior art search that can benefit your FTO

Of the organizations targeted, law firms are seeing a rise in attacks due to the nature of the data they hold. In this presentation, a panel consisting of legal and technology experts, moderated by Tim Opsitnick, will discuss the current trends in cyber attacks, why attackers are focusing on law firms and the techniques they implement, and discuss the legal and ethical obligations a lawyer has in regard to protecting his or her clients' confidential data.
