It is necessary to pass intellectual property (designs, specification, etc.) along a supply chain, but it is also known that these also ‘leaks’, often through poor security. This becomes more complex when the IP crosses international borders. We will examine three methods, each using security by design principles to protect our data and IP. Preserving information security policy during data integration, protecting documents when they leave an organisation, and when information is passed along the supply chain. I will also briefly look at how we move these ideas from academia to commercialisation.
