Ensuring Cybersecurity to Protect University IP Assets

By David Schwartz
Published: September 12th, 2017

The U.S. government recently identified cybersecurity as “one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation,” and the threats are equally severe in countries across the globe. Recently press reports in Britain showed research universities there had experienced more than 1,100 hacking episodes over a one-year period, with cyber thieves targeting IP among other pieces of valuable information.

With the growing volume and sophistication of cyber attacks, a new level of effort and expertise is required to protect sensitive and confidential information related to your university’s IP assets. Cybercriminals are releasing sensitive information, taking intellectual property to competitors, and engaging in online fraud. There are millions of dollars at stake associated with your IP’s protection, as well as your university’s reputation, future research opportunities, and industry partnerships. Even as universities redouble their efforts to “lock down” sensitive information, malicious attacks often outpace security patches. So what can you do to safeguard your trade secrets and IP?

Technology Transfer Tactics and Industry-Sponsored Research Management have teamed up with a world expert on university cybersecurity from Baker Tilly to offer this critically important webinar: Ensuring Cybersecurity to Protect University IP Assets, scheduled for October 12.
