Cybersecurity is a major concern of many organisations today, and rightly so. The financial and operational costs following a cybersecurity attack can be substantial to your organisation. Undoubtedly you have already witnessed stories in the press of organisations and biotech companies that were victim of cyberattacks (e.g. ransomware, phishing, confidential data leakage…) and as a result, suffered giant financial losses, reputational damage and even lost out on opportunities for business acquisitions and growth.

One misconception is that those who have outsourced their IT are by default sufficiently covered from a security perspective. Nothing is less true! If you can not answer what actions your provider is taking to make sure that your organisation has its cybersecurity risks covered, then it’s time to get in the driving seat. Always remember that it is your organisation that faces the consequences of a cyberattack, not your IT provider! 

Interested to gain more insights on how cybersecurity attacks are organised and what you can do to prepare yourself? We are happy to invite you to our 1-hour Cyber Readiness session where we will share more context via real biotech cases, attention points and lessons learned from cybersecurity incidents, as well as elaborate on the financial support (subsidies) of the Flemish Government that can help you to improve your cybersecurity posture.

We are confident that you will walk away with some new insights on cybersecurity and hope that we may welcome you to this session!
