Data Security in Pharma: Are You Missing Something?|Webinars


The Pharmaceutical industry is increasingly becoming the target of cyber-attacks & espionage mainly because of the following reasons:

  • Intellectual property (drug formulas, manufacturing processes) as they have the potential to generate billions of dollars of revenue, and it is expensive & time consuming to undertake such R&D to generate intellectual property
  • Insiders rather than external hackers pose the biggest threat in organisations that hold large amounts of valuable intellectual property and trade secrets (DuPont breach in 2012)
  • The pharmaceutical & life sciences industry lag behind in implementing measures to protect against cyber-attacks as compared to other industries
