More than 4,000 ransomware attacks have occurred every day since the beginning of 2016.
Cybercrime has become the greatest threat to companies and organizations in the biohealth industry. Patient/scientific data are top-priority targets for hackers. However, of the organizations that suffered a successful cyber-attack in 2016, 52% have reported no changes to their cybersecurity for 2017. How “cyber-ready” is your organization? Join us for an expert panel discussion about the special needs of the biohealth industry and the essential security risk management strategies your organization needs to consider in 2017. Whether you are an executive wondering how to evaluate your company’s security, a board member wanting to know what questions to ask staff members, or a scientist/doctor/innovator wanting to set priorities, everyone will leave with a better understanding of how to keep their most valuable assets safe and keep their business running.
