CyberLock and Intellectual Property Protection
CyberLock shared with us these interesting details regarding intellectual property protection.
< < Intellectual property (IP) is a legal concept that refers to creations of the mind for which exclusive rights are recognized(1). In other words, it is an idea, an invention, a piece of art, a product design, a manufacturing process, or some other defined concept that a person or company has created. More often than not, this IP has significant value and needs to be protected and secured.
The physical location of where IP details are stored can vary greatly and often changes over time as concepts evolve. It can start in a notebook kept in a desk drawer. It can migrate to digital form and be stored on a workstation or server. Irrespective of how the intellectual property is stored, having security policies and procedures in place, including effective access control to the intellectual property, is critical.
Historically, no single solution has been available to safeguard such creations until the CyberLock family of mechatronic locks and smart keys came along.
Case in point, Gene Tools, LLC, based in Philomath, Oregon, turned to CyberLock to control access to their research facilities containing valuable intellectual proprietary and confidential information.
Gene Tools is involved in molecular biology and had a variety of security needs including preventing industrial espionage. In response, Gene Tools installed the CyberLock system to restrict and audit access to areas containing their intellectual property. "We need to be able to restrict who has access to each lab so that no one person can access all of the information," said James Summerton, President of Gene Tools. "With CyberLock, I have the ability to track who has accessed each lock so that if a molecule goes awry or if information has been tampered with we can get a report of who had accessed the information and when." > >
