RUSI presentation OrbisIP

  1. 1. The Security Technology Transfer LifeCycle or 'So much research, so few products ' © OrbisIP 2009 RUSI Cyber Security Rob Rowlingson CTO OrbisIP Ltd 21 October 2009
  2. 2. Cyber Security- the problem... “ Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” Thomas Edison, 1932 “ Cyber security is 1% aspiration and 99% desperation” Rob Rowlingson, 2009
  3. 3. Fundamental need for Security Innovation <ul><li>There is an ‘arms race’ between cyber security attackers and defenders; </li></ul><ul><li>Private Sector & Government Agencies need innovative technology to help them exploit new opportunities and compete in today’s international markets </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation typically comes from researchers and SMEs </li></ul><ul><li>SME’s have limited resources & often find it hard to access major customers </li></ul><ul><li>Customers often lack the time to go & find the innovative solutions they need </li></ul><ul><li>Innovative technology is the key to a successful economy </li></ul>
  4. 4. Characterising Cyber Security Research <ul><li>The ‘dirty hands’ approach </li></ul><ul><li>Security as a process </li></ul><ul><li>Security by numbers - theory </li></ul><ul><li>Architecting security </li></ul><ul><li>Understanding security-related behaviours </li></ul><ul><li>Analysing key concepts </li></ul><ul><li>Identifying security requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Holistic research </li></ul>
  5. 5. Market trends in Innovation ... the OrbisIP view <ul><li>The industry has a growing need for innovation and is increasingly willing to licence in or acquire new technology </li></ul><ul><li>IP consumers are open to new technology from IP creators and global R&D partners </li></ul><ul><li>Recognised depth and quality of R&D from emerging nations </li></ul><ul><li>Universities and SMEs have relevant technology that meets the requirements of industry </li></ul><ul><li>Universities / SMEs want a better return and wider distribution of their technology to industry </li></ul><ul><li>Universities and their Technology Transfer Offices (TTO) welcome external expertise </li></ul><ul><li>Universities / SMEs want to understand industry security requirements and market trends </li></ul>
  6. 6. Security Innovation in Practice <ul><li>The innovation supply chain </li></ul><ul><li>Open innovation </li></ul><ul><li>BAE ‘Investment in innovation’ programme </li></ul><ul><li>Licensing </li></ul><ul><li>Spin-offs </li></ul><ul><li>Acquisitions </li></ul><ul><li>Networks – SITC, KTN etc. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Flaws in conventional IP commercialisation <ul><li>University spin out model flawed , it is still rare for any University or Research Council funded collaboration to actually get a spin out company over the valley of death into large scale commercial deployment and exit. There are exceptions with University of Surrey and Imperial Innovations having successful recent exits. </li></ul><ul><li>Prime Contracting Model flawed - Prime Contractors working on behalf of clients have built a huge amount of ‘orphan IP’ and are typically risk averse </li></ul><ul><li>Security technology industry model flawed - . Often when we talk to industry about their requirements they have IP / products that they have either built, inherited, acquired that are no longer 'core‘.  </li></ul><ul><li>Owner / operator SME model flawed - Can't get traction, visibility, seed capital, angel / early stage investment networks for Security Technology early stage SME companies is almost nonexistent </li></ul>
  8. 8. OrbisIP – Facilitating the Global R&D Supply chain <ul><li>Scout for IP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify security research worldwide </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Horizon-scanning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>build OrbisIP knowledge base and understand future requirements </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor research outputs and market trends </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Assess IP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Perform IP audits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Implement OrbisIP evaluation model </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Undertake technical/market assessment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Commercialise Information & Homeland Security IP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify innovative opportunities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Work with Universities to exploit IP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop secure security products </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Why is it difficult to Monetise IP? <ul><li>Cost of establishing path to markets and channel distribution model </li></ul><ul><li>The need to get the technology to the right level of maturity for the early adopters </li></ul><ul><li>Cost of sales and support of traditional software license model </li></ul><ul><li>Complexity and cost of managing IP portfolio – what do you protect? Where? and Why? </li></ul><ul><li>Difficulty of enforcing patents and prosecuting infringers </li></ul><ul><li>Cost of marketing / engagement with industry </li></ul>
  10. 11. Innovation Opportunities <ul><li>Secure software development </li></ul><ul><li>Cryptography </li></ul><ul><li>Horizon scanning </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile device security </li></ul><ul><li>Monitoring and detection </li></ul>
  11. 12. So much research, so few products... <ul><li>Need a stronger innovation pipeline </li></ul><ul><li>Continue to drive partnering/networking </li></ul><ul><li>Improve the ecosystem for researchers/innovators </li></ul><ul><li>Need clearer horizon scanning and technology watching </li></ul><ul><li>Secure software development </li></ul>
