Life sciences organisations are facing rapidly shifting market conditions that will test their ability to safeguard the security and privacy of sensitive personal data, intellectual property and shared information. As connected health initiatives proliferate and the volume of digital health data multiplies, it will become increasingly complex to navigate risks associated with cyber security and data safety.

New technologies, an increase in equipment collectively joining the ‘Internet of Things’ and the growing number of mobile health apps means that cyber risk is also increasing within the life sciences sector.

Rhodri Evans, Cyber Security Lead for PwC Wales & West, will lead discussions on some of the ways in which you can protect your organisation against current cyber threats.

Joining Rhodri will be Lowri Phillips, Information Law Partner at Geldards will look at what amounts to a personal data breach under the GDPR, the key notification and record keeping obligations and deadlines under the GDPR when a personal data breach occurs, and the risk assessment that must be undertaken to determine when a personal data breach must be reported to the ICO and the individuals involved. This will be a key aspect of compliance for organisations in the Life Sciences sector who will be dealing with genetic, biometric and health data, all of which are considered special category data under the GDPR and given additional protection. .
