Pharma Cybersecurity & Data Privacy
A staggering 89% of CIOs in India agreed to place greater importance on cyber security issues. They also revealed that their organisations faced security related issues last year and re-asserted that cyber security continues to be one of the most cited areas for planned investment, both before COVID-19 and in the current situation. Some of the most prominent areas of cybersecurity related issues for Indian organisations were pertaining to insider threats (45%) and data breaches (38%).
Pharmaceutical sector is among the top three sectors targeted by the hackers and India is the sixth country in the world where more and more pharmaceutical companies are being targeted by cyber criminals. However, only 5 to 10% of pharma companies in India have fool proof cyber security plans.
The sector is such a prime target for cyber attackers is mainly because it hosts prized intellectual property (IP) that is of immense value to criminals. The pharma sector in particular, has some of its most sensitive data often scattered across locations, with multiple partners.
With such a spread of data and increasing complexity of cyber-attacks, it is vital for pharma companies to protect themselves against data leakages, espionage and theft.
Eminence Business Media plans to address this vulnerability and help pharma companies build effective defence mechanism by hosting a virtual training on “Pharma Cybersecurity & Data Privacy”
The agenda is designed after meticulously discussing the details with our advisors and highlighting topics of relevance to large, mid and small sized pharma companies.
