Innovation as a true source of value creation for companies is becoming increasingly important and provides competitive advantages in the market, where knowledge protection through Intellectual Property (IP) rights is the most valuable asset

 

Thus, IP rights should be systematically analyzed and monitorized with ongoing supervision so that they can add value and be a distinguishing element of the innovation process.

However, currently these rights are becoming increasingly vulnerable to numerous ransomware cyber attacks (Wannacry, etc.) or, similarly, to breaches by employees or data leakage, creating a growing sense of insecurity in the markets.

Protecting IP requires sound understanding of the existing vulnerabilities not only in its protection and defense, but also at an IT level, in order to create a barrier, thus anticipating possible cyber threats.

Clarke, Modet & Cºstrives to be a partner of excellence for its clients, for this new area by designing a cyber approach to further protect and defend IP, allowing businesses to be cyber secure in protecting information and their systems.

With this new strategy, IP protection and defense is ensured by defining an IP strategy (through patents, designs, distinctive signs, know-how, trade secrets, copyright, etc.), identification of confidential information according to corporate standards and policies, and creating awareness among its users, defining multiple control processes. At the systems level, we work alongside companies that offer IT services, which guarantee an advantage in data transmission and encryption, as well as protection for accessing the memory during processing.

To lock and protect your IP, it is necessary to reinforce IP measures and cyber-security, without neglecting to inform all employees about the risks in the new era of the online market.
