Many states across the US have taken a proactive approach to address climate change despite federal pushback against clean power. California recently joined the growing list of states and regions that are committing to carbon neutrality and becoming 100% green with the recent passing of SB100. Reaching these goals is an ambitious task on many fronts. Regardless, there is a growing positive sentiment and a sense of urgency to embrace electrification of transportation (EoT) coming from the consumer and electric grid sides.

Heavy infrastructure, complex administration and poor user experiences are the hallmarks of legacy multi-factor authentication solutions. They're also the reasons why you haven't deployed MFA in more places to protect against the #1 cause of data breaches, compromised credentials.
A cloud delivered, adaptive MFA solution balances security and convenience for workforce and consumer use cases. It also allows you to deploy MFA everywhere - on every app, API, VPN, within high risk transaction flows and even when logging into corporate devices. But implementing MFA everywhere isn’t easy, and surprising roadblocks can appear along the way.
Join Shawn Keve, EVP at Simeio Solutions, Vikram Subramanian, VP Solutions Advisory at Simeio Solutions and Andrew Goodman, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Ping Identity to learn about requirements and best practices for a comprehensive MFA deployment.

Modern applications are constructed using open source components. Most organizations understand they’re using open source. What they likely underestimate is its prevalence in their homegrown applications and the potential security and license compliance risks they assume if they’re not continuously monitoring those libraries. When companies merge or are acquired, that unknown risk is transferred, potentially to organizations with greater regulatory exposure. Join Daniel Kennedy, Research Director, Information Security, and Phil Odence, GM, Black Duck On-Demand, for a discussion of these risks and how to address them.

Jurgen Vollrath, President at Exponential Technology CounselRecorded: Jul 25 201840 mins
A ‘Patent cliff’ describes a severe drop in revenue once the patent for a company’s leading product expires. The sharp revenue decline is a result of competitors being able to start developing and selling the product, often at a much lower price.
As US biopharmaceutical company Celgene struggles to get regulatory approval from the FDA, the company is facing major market, shares and revenue losses, and is facing a phenomenal patent cliff. Furthermore, research from EvaluatePharma reports that an estimated $250 billion in projected sales is at risk between 2018-2024 as many drugs lose exclusivity.
When it comes to acquisitions, the effects of a dwindling patent term can severely impact the value of your company. So how do you create 5-year plan to prepare for an inevitable patent cliff? We are very excited to welcome back Jurgen Vollrath, President of Exponential Technology Counsel, and customer of PatSnap. ET Counsel, advise clients on IP strategy & business alignment to ensure the most successful M&A and exit outcomes.
In this webinar, Jurgen will be discussing:
- Risk vs. reality when it comes to patent cliffs
- How to create a 5-year M&A plan for your organisation
- How to find potential acquisition targets
- Predicting the potential impact a patent cliff could have on your business.

With innovation budgets increasing each year and R&D becoming more competitive, many organisations are getting creative in how they increase the reach of their IP protection.
One technique is to widen IP claims by patenting human experiences induced by the product or service. This is often seen in the automotive and consumer goods sectors, commonly describing visual and tactile sensations around the original technology.
Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist & Founder of Lyco Works has worked with many clients using this technique and will be hosting this webinar to discuss how your company could benefit from broadening patent claims in this way. He will also cover:
- What patenting human experiences really means and looks like
- The importance of not forgetting the human-impact your technologies create
- How claim-broadening technique offers another layer of protection for your technology
- Why it will make it much harder for your competitors to trap you in litigation cases.
Pari Datta, Senior innovation and research consultant at Cambridge Design PartnershipRecorded: Jun 13 201839 mins
Mature products, such as smartphones and cars, tend to become very similar – whether they are from different manufacturers or the latest model from the same manufacturer.
Speed, power and slight changes in appearance become the focus for many companies. Marketing can make advances through insightful methods to dig deeper into opportunities from unmet needs – but the right science and technology are required to make them real.
R&D teams have access to incredible developments in science and technology, such as artificial intelligence and the latest developments in genetics, but struggle to find how to link them with market opportunities. Opportunities become ‘market pull’ or ‘technology push’, without joining together. Innovation opportunities must connect customer needs with science and technology to be more than just ideas or technologies.
This webinar will demonstrate how technology mapping can be used to discover new opportunities, whichever direction you start from, and how IP landscapes can then help you to make the right connections.
Please note: Registrants details will be shared with the presenter after the webinar.

Open source components are the foundation of modern applications, but ineffective management of open source can lead to serious risks and unwanted media attention when security flaws lead to data breaches. The Black Duck by Synopsys 2018 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA) examines the previous year’s open source and security news and analyzes trends based on the audits of more than 1,100 codebases.
This webinar will detail the findings in the OSSRA report, showing that M&A target organizations are not always effective in securing and managing their open source. Not surprisingly, 96% of audited codebases contained open source components, and nearly 78% contained at least one vulnerability. We’ll discuss these findings and the risk associated with not understanding them before making investment decisions.

The headline of Wall Street Journal article from March read “Due Diligence on Cybersecurity Becomes Bigger Factor in M&A.” In April, Gartner reported, “Cybersecurity is Critical to the M&A Due Diligence Process.” Companies that invest in open source license compliance as part of diligence are starting to dive more deeply into security issues.
A first step in assigning the security of software assets is looking at known vulnerabilities in open source components. But, now as part of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, Black Duck can bring much broader capabilities to bear to analyze the overall security of code assets, including proprietary code.
This webinar will discuss application security issues at a high level and the security services that you can include with a due diligence audit.
