Cybersecurity for Life Sciences

Securing intellectual property, avoiding supply chain disruptions caused by a breach and staying on top of changing regulations are just a few ways we’ve helped clients in the life sciences field.

A new era in life science needs the latest in cybersecurity.

Improving patient outcomes today requires much more than research and development, which is already a ton. Improving the lives of others now requires:

  • Staying on top of the ever-evolving regulatory landscape–hello new FDA information sharing requirements
  • Managing threats from inside your facility and out; and
  • Ensuring your instrument of change–be it device, wearable, implant or implant–facilitates a positive outcome before and after approval for sale

Sound challenging? It is. And here’s why:

Compliance is continual. If you thought compliance was a race with a finish line; we’ve got news.

Attackers are more and more sophisticated. Life science organizations are increasingly valuable targets. Cybersecurity software company, Sophos reported a 69 percent increase in attack volume in 2022 from the previous year; the highest increase across all sectors. And a 67 percent increase in the sophistication of attacks.

New FDA laws require medical device manufacturers to prove you have a plan to deal with cybersecurity vulnerabilities that surface after your product is released. You have a plan for your instrument, of course. What about the vulnerabilities lurking in the connectivity, or interoperability functions? How about the threats hiding in your supply chain?
