Free breakfast event

The MedBIC, Alan Cherry Drive, Chelmsford, CM1 1SQ

  • Are you worried about people stealing your ideas or data?
  • Are you fully aware of all the ways you can protect your company and technology?
  • Are you already working or looking to expand into international markets?

This seminar is your opportunity to hear about free services that can help you protect your technology and exploit it by partnering with companies locally, nationally and internationally.

Starting with an introduction to intellectual property you will learn how to use copyright and trade marks to protect your business in a cost-effective way; it’s not only about patents. 

Almost daily we hear on the news about the risk of cyber crime as we increasingly depend upon the internet and emails for communication and trade. We will provide some practical suggestions on how you can protect your business against cyber crime and signpost you to useful cyber-security resources your business needs to be aware of.

This event has been organised by the Enterprise Europe Network East of England in collaboration with The MedBIC, Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford.
