“Theft of proprietary data and unauthorized access to information are among the most common sources of loss due to cybercrime, along with viruses and hardware theft, and cost U.S. businesses approximately $250 million per year.”

Could you or your business be a victim of cybercrime? Virtually every business and individual has proprietary or confidential information that needs protection. Intellectual property, or proprietary information, is one of our most valued resources as a society. It fuels trade and grows jobs, provides a competitive advantage, and incentivizes entrepreneurs, researchers, and investors to develop and market innovative technologies and services. Effective protection of that information is paramount to promoting the safety and growth of businesses across the world. On Sept. 4, university researchers got an inside look at cybercrime prevention and web security as our panelists from the FBI and UT Austin discussed the following topics and more:

  • What is proprietary information?
  • What is ripe for potential misuse and abuse?
  • How to detect misuse of proprietary information
  • Steps to protect your information
  • FBI case studies of cybercrimes
