Download Part One and Two of a Three Part Podcast Series - Podcast Series: Don’t Risk Losing “Ownership” Of Your Research IP In Your Electronic R&D Environment
April 12, 2011 - PRLog -- Needham, MA – Bio-IT World announces the podcast series entitled Don’t Risk Losing “Ownership” of Your Research IP in Your Electronic R&D Environment.  

Sponsored by Surety, this podcast series will focus on laboratories and R&D-dependent bio-pharma and life sciences organizations, and as they move to electronic workflows in their lab environments, the need to protect Scientific Intellectual Property (trade secrets, formulas, ideas and collaboration) is paramount. But if you aren’t protecting the integrity of your research data in your lab management workflows, you risk losing ownership, revenue and potentially your business if you can't prove time of creation (“first-to-invent”) and authenticity. Surety hosted a podcast series with Michael Elliot of Atrium Research & Consulting and Timothy Carroll, Partner at Loeb & Loeb, LLP, discussing important topics that can improve your organization's IP data security and integrity.

The podcast series includes discussions on:

-  The benefits of an electronic R&D environment

-  Across-the-board, data-level security controls that must be in place to protect Scientific  Intellectual Property (IP) as the” lifeblood” of the organization

-  How digital timestamp technology can act as “trusted witness” to protect the integrity and legally defend the authenticity and ownership of IP.

In part 1 of this podcast series, the Benefits of an Electronic Lab Environment, Elliot and Carroll discuss how companies going the way of eR&D are improving laboratory efficiencies, from the conception of experiments through information delivery.

Part 2 of this podcast series, entitled Data-level Security and Authenticity Controls: a Trusted Witness in Electronic R&D Environments. This podcast will discuss how during the past few years many companies tried extending their traditional records policies to the way in which they managed e-mail and electronic records, hoping for a one-size-fits-all approach. But is this inviting risk? Listen in, as Elliot and Carroll mull over the types of controls an organization can put in place to ensure data integrity for electronic documents.
