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?  BioForward held 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.
