European and UK patent law concerning the patentability of inventions in the cybersecurity sector is full of nuances.  In order to have a good prospect of obtaining a granted patent in this sector, you need to have a deep understanding of the case law supported by experience.  In this report, we’ve taken an in-depth look at the legal challenges faced in this area (focusing specifically on Europe and the UK), reviewed the filing trends and highlighted some of the key considerations if patent protection is desired in the UK or Europe more generally.  

Cybersecurity is a broad term encapsulating protection against a multitude of different threat types. We have broken it down into the following areas:

  • Computer Security
  • Privacy
  • Fraud
