Despite progress in corporate cybersecurity, life sciences operational technology is still vulnerable to increasingly sophisticated threats.
The life sciences industry has entered a time of incredible innovation. These advances depend upon equally groundbreaking connected technologies that enable accelerated, cost-effective, and customized production. Continuing to innovate on all these fronts is imperative to thriving in this industry.
This will require bringing OT and IT cybersecurity to parity and staying several steps ahead of threat actors whose actions could bring innovation to a halt. Life sciences organizations have made significant progress when it comes to protecting IT networks and critical data in the corporate environment. The same attention must now be paid to the OT environment. The future of life sciences innovation depends on it.
