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." > >

HP Enterprise Services

Mr. Scott Gaydos, Chief Technologist, Federal Healthcare, HP Enterprise Services, US Public Sector, told us, "HP provides technology, services, and turnkey solutions to Federal Healthcare entities including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and the Military Health System (MHS). Many of these entities, in addition to private health institutions, share an ever-increasing amount of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), which typically includes Personal Health Information (PHI). The secure storage and access of this information is critical in creating a more effective infrastructure designed to enhance patient experiences and outcomes. The efficient management of sensitive information is just one example of improvements being made to better serve citizens and to support overall improvements to the U.S. populations' health.

Each federal healthcare entity currently maintains its own information repositories which continue to grow both from internally-generated data, as well as the data injected from collaborative information sharing. In some cases, HP technologies and services power the data centers and environments in which this data resides. In this scenario, HP helps to transform the technology infrastructure responsible for storing, managing, and processing data. In other cases, HP technologists provide services and solutions centered on building custom data analytic software to help public sector healthcare clients efficiently organize and utilize mass amounts of data for more informed clinical, administrative, and population healthcare decisions. However, in all cases, HP brings a wealth of healthcare industry knowledge, specifically to include, the effective use of IT in payer, provider, and public health settings.

Finally, HP also specifically focuses on some of the unique challenges facing the federal healthcare community through analytic research and development. For example, in the HP Advanced Federal Healthcare Innovation Lab (AFHIL), we are exploring technology solutions that enable entities such as the FDA to leverage the sea of data generated from the social media universe in order to better predict and act upon food recalls. Analyzing what people are talking about publically across social media outlets concerning health, the food they consume, and even where they're located, can potentially lead to more effective communications when recalls are necessary for public safety."

ImageWare Systems

ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) a leader in cloud identity management, and valued partner Emida, a leader in the global prepayment and value transfer market, entered into an agreement whereby ImageWare Systems will provide Emida its patented CloudID™ software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, which will enable a fully-validated, feature-rich security solution that will run on top of Fujitsu's Global Cloud Platform (FGCP). Smartphone users, service providers and merchants will have unprecedented identity and value exchange protection for financial transactions.

"According to the Digital Journal, identity is stolen every three seconds in the United States and businesses alone lost $21 billion in 2012," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems. "Password protection can no longer protect us from identity theft, which is a major issue in mobile security. We are extremely pleased to partner with Emida Technologies and Fujitsu to offer one of, if not the first, services to deliver smartphone user identity, value transfer and purchase protection for service providers, merchants and consumers."

"Emida endeavors to consistently bring to market new and better value transfer products and services that benefit our customers around the world," said Shane Belovsky, CEO of Emida. "We work with best-in-class partners like ImageWare who soundly develop thought-leading patented technologies. We are confident that ImageWare's security management products, coupled with Emida's trusted innovations, will help to revolutionize the prepaid landscape."

T-Systems

Mr. Ryan Skipp, T-Systems International GMBH, Portfolio & Solution Design - IT, Applications & Portfolio Architecture, told us, "T-Systems as an Outsourcing & Service Provider has to provide base infrastructure services which meet the cost and quality expectations that a company transitioning to outsourced services would expect -- better than they as an end-user could produce, with better quality, and lower cost! In order to achieve that, T-Systems was one of the first Outsourcers to produce a "Cloud" platform, based on highly shared leveraged infrastructure, and with a number of pre-defined applications on top of that. Today we have enhanced that infrastructure, and wrapped the Cloud functionality into it, all the way up to self-service (to application level) for our Private Cloud clients.

Life Safety with Bob Vezina
Bill Bozeman recently sat down with Bob Vezina, President of Life Safety, to gain some knowledge about his company as well as what they can offer their customers.

Bill Bozeman: You recently won an award from Office Max. Tell us a little about that

Bob Vezina: We're proud of that, we were picked as Vendor of the Year and it was picked over all the service providers to Office Max throughout their chain. We do their fire alarm service. They choose us because we deliver on what we say and we care about them, we go the extra mile. At the beginning of their fiscal year they came to us and said we were charging too much money so they wanted us to lower our price, and we came back and said we're not charging too much and we'll come up with programs to guarantee you more savings than you're asking us for. We exceeded that percentage decrease with new systems and still provided the excellent service they needed. The other thing that really impressed them is we had a problem in Texas that needed extra attention; our operations manager flew in from Phoenix to personally take care of the issue.
