Henry Goh & Co: Pursuing IP Protection in a Pandemic – Malaysian Utility Innovation Certificate

[Henry Goh & Co] Pursuing IP Protection in a Pandemic – Malaysian Utility Innovation Certificate
Report by Alvin Boey

As the world continues to grapple with the COVID – 19 pandemic, it is business as usual for innovators to develop new inventions, technologies, and solutions since innovation does not stop. Intellectual Property continues to play an indispensable role in providing a solid platform for development, research, analysis, and commercialization of new innovations meeting the challenges in the current pandemic. Without a shadow of doubt that it will be very difficult and challenging to innovate and invent if these new ideas and assets are not protected.

Many intellectual property owners often overlook the pursuance of utility model protection, as compared to a full – fledged patent protection due to various reasons. Many new inventions are cumulative and incremental in nature and the patent system may not be able to accommodate them with its more stringent requirements, namely novelty and inventive step.

KPMG: Ransomware: The 2nd Pandemic

[KPMG] Ransomware: The 2nd Pandemic

Ransomware may have started over 30 years ago but first gained global notoriety as a result of the WannaCry attack in May 2017.  However, it was not until the global COVID – 19 pandemic where the number of ransomware attacks skyrocketed. The Chainanalysis 2021 Crypto Crime Report indicated that in 2020 cybercriminals profited an estimated US$350M from ransomware alone, an increase of 311% from 2019.  Business leaders in every organization must be proactive to mitigate the risks.

KPMG: Ignore OT cyber risks at your peril

[KPMG] Ignore OT cyber risks at your peril

What would life be like without traffic lights, mass – produced food, electricity at the touch of a button, water supply, or easily available petrol and gas?  Operational Technology (OT) makes these possible and pervades our lives in obvious and hidden ways. It automatically monitors and controls processes and equipment that are too dangerous, too demanding or too monotonous for manual operation.

Modern day OT networks run today’s society as we know it, and we’ve taken these conveniences for granted to always be readily available and safe to use. Hence, it is a smart and malicious criminal who knows that targeting OT infrastructures will make us vulnerable.

KPMG: The Human Firewall

[KPMG] The Human Firewall

Many organizations are now racing to adopt new technologies and digitalize processes to improve productivity, reduce cost, and increase competitive advantage. However, I’ve observed how companies tend to overlook the human risk factor in this accelerated technology transformation race.

The result is predictable: Organizations become more vulnerable to cyber criminals who engage increasingly sophisticated social engineering techniques that exploit their personnel’s behavior.

[27 Group] 4IR Fourth Industrial Revolution

The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) launched the National Industry 4.0 Policy Framework (Industry4WRD) in 2018, on the adoption of Industry 4.0 technology elements for the manufacturing sector and manufacturing – related services.  There was a need to develop a broader 4IR policy framework for the rest of the economy to interphase with the Industry4WRD framework. In addition, a multitude of current policies that direct sectoral growth must be reconciled within a wider structure for improved resource optimization and alignment of execution.  It is with these circumstances we were engaged by the Client with another international consultancy firm to devise the national policy framework.

[Rabobank] ASEAN update: Recovering from COVID – 19

We have left 2020 in the rear view mirror and are looking forward to getting back to “normal”.  Unfortunately, the coronavirus is still very much influencing our lives and the world economy. While scientists have learned quite a bit about the “original” virus, there remains much uncertainty about new virus mutations like the “South African” and “British” variant. The result is that 2021 will again be a year marked by the fight against the coronavirus.

Malaysia: Investment Performance 2019

Malaysia: Investment Performance 2019

Malaysia has been proactive during the Movement Control Order (MCO) in balancing public health and the livelihood of the people as well as strengthening the economic fundamentals by providing the necessary approval for companies in several economic sectors to operate, and are subject to strict adherence to health and safety guidelines.

“While the COVID – 19 pandemic has changed the global industrial system, MITI is committed to ensuring that Malaysia continues to be positioned as an investor – friendly location for long term growth of both foreign and domestic businesses. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is a long term capital flow. We trust that the existing foreign companies will continue to weather the storm and retain their investment in the country,” said YB Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, Senior Minister and Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), today.

Against the backdrop of a challenging external environment and declining global FDI inflows, Malaysia remains resilient and attracted a total of RM 207.9 billion of approved investments in the manufacturing, services and primary sectors in 2019, a 1.7% increase, compared to 2018. With a contribution of 60.4% (RM 125.5 billion), domestic direct investment (DDI) accounted for the bulk of the total approved investments. Although FDI made up for 39.6% (RM 82.4 billion) of the total, the value of FDI in 2019 had increased by 2.9% from the previous year.
