Webinar will provide answers to critical security and software patenting questions

An experienced UK and European patent and intellectual property attorney is the guest speaker at an upcoming webinar hosted by the University’s C11 Cyber Security and Digital Innovation Centre.

Andrew Rudhall, from global IP (Internet Protocol) firm Haseltine Lake Kempner, will provide an overview of the critical questions, process and concerns associated with considering patenting, at a webinar entitled ‘Protecting your software or intellectual property innovation through patents’.

Andrew (pictured) will explore how patenting applies to software, including computer security and creative computing areas such as gaming software development.

Andrew has advised a wide variety of clients including start-ups, SMEs, universities and multi-national companies on patent matters in the fields of electronics and engineering. 

The C11 webinar takes place on Thursday, 5 May between 12.30pm and 1.30pm via Microsoft Teams, and registration is open.

Professor Kamal Bechkoum, Head of the School of Computing and Engineering at the University, said: “Andrew will offer insight and advice about what is patentable as well as an explanation of the pros and cons of the process.

“Whether you are involved in innovation development as a start-up, SME, an academic researcher or major industry player, we believe the webinar will help you stay up to date on this increasingly important topic within computing.”

With Gloucestershire fast becoming known as ‘the cyber capital of the UK’, the University is the perfect place to study a wide range of cyber and computing degree courses and gain experience through placements, internships and its industry links.

The University’s purpose-built facilities offer computing and engineering students the very latest hardware, including Oculus Rift, HTV Vive and Motion Capture, while research labs provide an authentic environment in which to practice mock cyberattacks through a private and secure network.
