Cyber Risks in the Life Sciences Industry

Pharmaceutical, research, clinical trials and similar organisations all rely on technology to conduct their daily work, share information and communicate, so any compromise of these systems can be devastating. The nature of the work in the life sciences industry means that companies are likely to hold sensitive or valuable data, which can be stolen by hackers for ransom, extortion and profit. Kathryn Moon of Gallagher explores how cyber-attacks pose a risk to the life sciences industry and what organisations can do to help protect themselves.
