Speaker: Clive Bonny, Managing Director, Strategic Management Partners
Your business data and IP asset value is likely to be more valuable than the sum of your buildings, plant and equipment. Trademarks, designs, copyright, website content, customer account data, personnel identities, operating processes, and training materials are all part of your IP. Yet over 90% of all businesses fail to register and protect their IP assets. Companies lose vital data through online and hard copy theft. Staff leavers often disclose employer IP to subsequent employers. Firms lose essential customers, suppliers and staff every year with poor controls. This presentation shares pragmatic ways to protect and capitalise IP assets..
Clive Bonny MD of Strategic Management Partners is a Certified trademark agent, IPO listed mediator for IP disputes and Responsible Business Standards advisor. As part of the IPO business advisory training team Clive has helped design online training modules for employers. He is trained by the National School of Government in Background Personnel Security Standards, and has conducted vetting for over 100 IT consultants to work in data protected environments. In 2015 Enterprise Nation and professional bodies voted Clive as one of the TOP 50 UK business advisors.
