Life sciences companies need to change their mindset from “perimeter-based security” to “orchestrated security processes.”
Organizations today are more vulnerable to security breaches because they are increasingly connected. Cloud, social media, connected plants and buildings, and mobility have increased the potential threats, points and complexity of attacks, and frequency and intensity of breaches.
Thus, life sciences companies need to have a process-specific and data-centric view of enterprise activities, and move from monitoring “who has access to which assets” to “trends of unauthorized attempts to access specific assets.”
Action item for the CIO: Technology leaders should establish policies that make robust and flexible security a priority while designing and developing information technology systems. They also need to work with peers to identify the most critical business systems and data sets, and assess their vulnerability.
