Tankers Or Speedboats – Who Wins The Innovation Race In A Data-Driven World?

In our ever-changing times and an increasingly faster business world, Start-Ups are said to be the winners of the innovation race. They beat Corporates with speed, motivated teams and a highly creative set-up. Good times for Start-Ups, as it seems! But what about stable finances, decade-long experiences from reliable customer relations and an enormous amount of data? In his talk Gian Casanova, Managing Director at Futurice, will shine a light on how these factors can enable corporates to actually outmaneuver Start-Ups in the growing need for innovation. You will gain insights on how corporate leadership can use their experience, their stability and their existing innovation culture in a data-driven world to overcome the prevailing misbelief that only young and small Start-ups can surprise and succeed with user-centric innovation.

How To Protect Inventions And Developments In Terms Of Business Secrets Under Brand New Statutory Requirements?

Being inventive often includes cooperation and exchange of business information with third parties. To share IP, know-how, strategies, client lists and the like with the aim to jointly develop new technology and business opportunities is a chance, but also puts your business secrets under risk. You may want to protect those secrets and thus your assets comprised in those, e.g. by non-disclosure agreements etc. Since this is pretty much standard for the time being, the brand new Act on the Protection of Business Secrets, which is in force since April 26, 2019, now defines completely new circumstances and preconditions under which your business and trade secrets will be protected by law. It also offers new remedies in case of a hack etc. However, in future such protection and remedies by law will only be available if you apply appropriate security measures yourself, to show that the respective information is of particular value for your business - and thus qualifies as business secret under the new Act. Daniel will briefly introduce the new requirements, show you what those „appropriate security measures“ may look like and provide Dos and Don‘ts.
