  • 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.

    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 Recorded: May 10 2017 52 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

  • Privilege: Shifting Sands, Protecting Information in Cross-Border Investigations
    Privilege: Shifting Sands, Protecting Information in Cross-Border Investigations Matt Axelrod (Partner, D.C.) Satindar Dogra (Partner, London) and Adam Lurie (Partner, D.C.), Linklaters LLP Recorded: May 3 2017 61 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 Recorded: May 3 2017 29 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

    This webinar is essential for anyone that wants to increase productivity throughout their teams and increase cross-collaboration.
  • Applying Records Retention and IG to Office 365
    Applying Records Retention and IG to Office 365 Greg Forest, CTO, Contoural Recorded: May 2 2017 58 mins
    One day, the decision is made to move the company’s messaging to Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud platform. While this may make it easier and less expensive to manage email and messaging, it raises a number of questions: How should we configure Office 365? What electronic records do we have, how do we manage them, and does Office 365 have the required functionality to support our policy? How much legacy email should we migrate to the new system? Do we want to just take advantage of the messaging and client features or should we move our documents to SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business as well? How do we train our employees on the new system? How do we migrate our information to the new system? How many of these questions do we need to answer now, or can we just figure them out along the way? Office 365 adoption raises a host of Information Governance questions. In this webinar industry expert Greg Forest from Contoural will address:
    • Office 365 deployment options (cloud only and hybrid)
    • Implementing governance policies for Office 365 components
    • Office 365 migration and employee behavior change management strategies
    • Creating an Office 365-specific Information Governance roadmap
  • Protecting Against a Panama Papers Breach
    Protecting Against a Panama Papers Breach Mark Diamond, Contoural CEO Recorded: May 2 2017 57 mins
    A Panama law firm suffered a massive data leak exposing offshore holdings of government officials across the world and companies should take notice. While the media has focused on the politicians involved, this breach also points to a more insidious trend: A new normal has come into place whereby it’s seemingly OK to breach information and the media’s “right to know” appears to trump companies and law firms’ rights to keep their confidential, sensitive and even privileged documents and data private. Traditional privacy and cybersecurity efforts are often ineffective against these types of attacks, and new, smarter approaches are needed.
    In this webinar we will discuss:
     How the “Panama Papers” and other similar attacks represent a new type of risk
     Where traditional information security approaches often fall short
     Key steps companies can take to protect themselves
  • Building a Real Business Case for Information Governance
    Building a Real Business Case for Information Governance Mark Diamond, CEO, Contoural Recorded: May 2 2017 56 mins
    How do we take such a diverse program such as Information Governance, that can reduce risk, cost, and in many cases move the business forward, and leverage it in a way so that the organization can figure out what value it has and build a business case for senior management?
  • Applying Records Retention and Deletion to Structured Data
    Applying Records Retention and Deletion to Structured Data Greg Forest, CTO, Contoural Recorded: May 2 2017 59 mins
    Historically, records retention programs have focused on hardcopy paper records in addition to semi structured electronic information like email, and unstructured information such as files and images. Yet surveys indicate that up to 75% of most data reside in structured systems – relational and other types of databases that house application data. These systems contain records, privacy information and other content subject to legal and regulatory requirements. Most organizations, however, rarely apply retention deletion and other governance policies to this structured data, creating both non-compliance and risk.
  • Is It Time for Your Records Retention Schedule to Grow Up and Become Useful
    Is It Time for Your Records Retention Schedule to Grow Up and Become Useful Tom Mighell, VP of Service Delivery, Contoural Inc. Recorded: May 2 2017 60 mins
    We don’t usually think of records retention schedules as exciting, but they happen to be one of the most important pieces of your information governance foundation. Many organizations consider records retention as something that they have to do, but feel handcuffed because they have no way of enforcing a policy. This webinar covers the different ideas to get your records retention schedule “off the couch” and become something useful to your organization.
  • Files, Files Everywhere, Nor Any to Delete: Quick IG Cleanup Wins
    Files, Files Everywhere, Nor Any to Delete: Quick IG Cleanup Wins Tom Mighell, VP of Service Delivery, Contoural Recorded: May 2 2017 60 mins
    You’ve got a lot of Redundant, Obsolete and Trivial (ROT) files in file shares, desktops, SharePoint and other silos all over the company. There are just too many copies and too much ROT content dragging down your storage systems, making discovery much harder, and making it difficult to comply with your record policies. But while it sounds easy, hitting the delete button can be trickier than it sounds. A smart and quick ROT file deletion project that cleans up your digital house can work to lower costs and reduce risks. In this session we discuss practical and tactical real world approaches to get rid of the ROT both quickly and defensibly.
  • Using Metrics to Measure an Information Governance Program
    Using Metrics to Measure an Information Governance Program Dan Elam, VP and Consultant, Contoural, Inc. Recorded: May 2 2017 56 mins
    Information Governance programs often involve a number of moving parts across an enterprise. But how do you know if your program is working? Likewise, how do you demonstrate to senior management as well as courts and regulators that you have an effective program? Existing frameworks often do little to measure program effectiveness in key areas, and can serve as target benchmarks moving forward. Join Dan Elam from Contoural as we discuss real-world strategies for applying metrics.
  • Applying ROI Models to Information Governance
    Applying ROI Models to Information Governance Dan Elam, VP and Consultant, Contoural, Inc. Recorded: May 2 2017 60 mins
    Before committing to Information Governance programs, many senior executives want to know the bottom-line impact: If we invest in this program how much will we save? What’s the overall return on investment, and how long will it take to achieve it? There is a lot of money to be saved in Information Governance, and increasingly companies are finding that this is not only something they have to do, but also should do to save significant amounts of money. Join us as we discuss developing effective Information Governance ROI models and how to use this information to help sell your program.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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 Jun 7 2017 2:30 pm UTC 75 mins
    With Safe Harbor being invalidated and EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield yet to be tested, UK data privacy post Brexit an unknown, the General Data Protection Regulation coming into effect throughout the EU next year, and the Trump administration potentially poised to ride roughshod over EU surveillance concerns– the uncertainty surrounding the current regulatory environment will inevitably add complexity to the issue of data transfers, especially in the context of international 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 ensue.

    This GIR Live webinar will break down the current data protection laws and set out some considerations and practical guidelines to minimize risk exposure for companies and professional services firms dealing with cross-border investigations and litigation.

    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:

    • Data privacy and adequate protection
    • What you can do now to remain compliant
    • How to manage conflicts of law in a global investigation with practical tips from real life case studies

  • 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.
