In today's competitive and complex manufacturing environment, numerous parties both inside your organization and out have routine access to your IP and trade secrets.

Internal engineering and R&D teams interact with this sensitive data every day. External partners and suppliers must also access it. A global supply chain demands the free flow of information and ideas.

Yet those charged with data security continue to struggle in justifying investment in IP protection to executive management.

Larry Brock, former chief information security officer at DuPont, understands these issues. The World Bank estimates IP theft worldwide costs our industry about $400 billion annually. Now more than ever, manufacturers must have a strategy and program in place to safeguard trade secrets.

Despite these threats, manufacturers continue to invest in innovation. We pour on average 3.9% of net sales back into R&D. These investments return new patents and inventions worth protecting.

In this webcast Larry Brock will share lessons learned from the front lines of protecting IP at a member of the Fortune 100. Brock helps senior IT executives at leading manufacturers realize some quick wins in the fight to protect their trade secrets.

Attendees of this webinar will learn how to protect data without impeding product innovation and business growth. Specifically, Brock will discuss 5 practical tips to:

  1. Establish a holistic IP protection program.
  2. Lobby successfully for funding to support an ongoing IP protection program.
  3. Protect your crown jewels from the growing insider and cyber threats.
  4. Improve your ability to detect cyber-attacks.
  5. Discover the weaknesses in your security and how to address them.

Learn how to safeguard your plans, formulas, designs, prototypes, methods, techniques and processes with data protection at the key point of risk -- the endpoint.
