Course Overview

Intellectual property is one of the most important assets an organisation has. It sets them apart from competitors and ensures the business progresses.

What is intellectual property? Why should we protect it? How can we protect it? This animated course explores these topics in an engaging and memorable way.

This scenario-based course asks learners to consider how many intellectual assets they have contact with daily by placing them inside a fictional company called Auto A-Z. The learner is tasked to oversee a new, top-secret product development project and must answer questions throughout the scenario to correctly identify and protect its intangible assets (whilst managing a team of colleagues to ensure they do the same).

Intellectual Assets

Your company’s intellectual assets are just as important as the physical ones. Intellectual property can give you an edge over competitors and drive forward the organisation’s progress.

No business owner would leave their physical property unprotected by leaving buildings and cars unprotected. With intellectual property carrying the same level of importance, it makes sense to invest the same training and protection in intellectual assets.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Intellectual property are intangible assets that differentiates a business from its competitors. Intellectual property is often powered by employees who are responsible for ideas such as branding, inventions, trade secrets and software. Intellectual property must be protected in order to help businesses maintain longevity and profitability.

Intellectual property can exist as data or digital information, making it more difficult to secure. Some of the potential digital security issues risks facing businesses today are serious data leaks and website hacks. Businesses that are dangerously ill-equipped or uninformed about risks to intellectual property can leave them vulnerable to threats.

A non-disclosure agreement is a legally binding contract that protects any non-public business information whereby the people in the know agree not to disclose it for a defined period of time. All parties involved in knowing confidential information need to sign a non-disclosure agreement. A non-disclosure agreement can help protect intellectual property and prevent individuals from using your information without your permission.
