Life sciences companies are leveraging digitalization, new and evolving technologies, and third-party providers to boost innovation, quality, and speed, but these compelling advances also introduce cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
Security breaches at life sciences companies and their third-party providers have targeted intellectual property and clinical trial data, and the resulting harm can be significant. Managing these threats and risks is an essential constituent of technology and business strategy.
Cybersecurity Compliance Regulations for Organizations of All Sizes
Even early-stage life sciences organizations generate valuable intellectual property, and stakes rapidly increase in the clinical and commercial phases. It is never too early to begin protecting yourself from cybersecurity threats and risks.
USDM has knowledgeable and experienced staff that will help you meet the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expectations for good cybersecurity practices such as preventing unauthorized user access, ensuring trusted content, and maintaining data confidentiality.
