Understand intellectual property threats at FBI workshop: mandatory for international travel

Nov 26, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Russ College faculty who travel internationally and did not attend last spring’s workshop must attend an upcoming IP workshop in order to travel. Experts from the FBI will lead a discussion on potential threats to intellectual property (IP), the role of dual-use technology and technology transfer, vulnerability and protection of IP and technology, international travel and current trends on Tues., Nov. 26, from 11 a.m.-noon, with a repeat from 1-2 p.m. in the Academic & Research Center 112.

Protection of IP has become a hot topic for academics and researchers, especially those whose scientific research work is supported by federal funding and subject to federal rules. The risk of losing IP through theft or unintentional disclosure has significantly increased with more frequent international travel, collaboration with international partners, social networking and online security attacks. Yet, most faculty and scientists still don’t believe their work and research data could be a target of theft or cyber-crime.

The presentation will include case studies, real-world examples, articles and video. This presentation is for faculty, staff, IT specialists, and people who deal with sensitive data related to IP and research results.
