This month's theme: Cybersecurity for Every Company

Data security breaches make headline news on a regular basis. Every company that handles sensitive data -- from Fortune 500 giants to small privately held startups --is susceptible to cyberattack. Phishing through email, websites, and even work-sharing platforms pose a risk.

The implications for regulated companies in the life sciences are especially troublesome. A data breach can expose sensitive clinical information, negatively impact intellectual property, and disrupt years of scientific research. In the long term, persistent security issues can impact your ability to attract investors. If you’re good with the science but sloppy at record-keeping, it’s time to get serious about your data.

At this event, two cybersecurity experts will demystify the data breach and recommend best practices from technical and legal perspectives to avoid being hacked. Bring your questions for this interactive event.
