  3. BioForward Speaker Series: Keeping Biohealth Data Secure

More than 4,000 ransomware attacks have occurred every day since the beginning of 2016.

Cybercrime has become the greatest threat to companies and organizations in the biohealth industry. Patient/scientific data are top-priority targets for hackers. However, of the organizations that suffered a successful cyber-attack in 2016, 52% have reported no changes to their cybersecurity for 2017. How "cyber-ready" is your organization?

BioForward held an expert panel discussion sponsored by Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren, about the special needs of the biohealth industry and the essential security risk management strategies your organization needs to consider in 2017. Heather Fields, a shareholder in Reinhart's Health Care Practice and chair of the firm’s Hospitals and Health Care Systems and Data Privacy and Cybersecurity practice groups, moderated the panel discussion. The panel included Justin Webb, an attorney in Reinhart’s Litigation Practice and a member of the Data Privacy and Cybersecurity , and Patent and Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Groups; and David Spade, a partner in the Advisory Services practice of EY.
