The healthcare industry, including biopharmaceutical companies, healthcare providers, and payers, is targeted by malicious cyber threat actors due to the vast amount of valuable and sensitive data it holds. The biopharmaceutical industry is also vulnerable to attacks from activists, who protest against animal testing of drugs, high drug prices, and other ethical and political issues. As the healthcare industry becomes more digitized, it will provide cybercriminals with increased methods of stealing personal and proprietary data, including from medical health records and connected medical devices. For biopharmaceutical companies, the consequences of cyberattacks can be staggering, ranging from stolen IP, operational disruption to clinical trials and manufacturing, lost revenue through reduced drug sales, increased litigation risk, and reputation damage.

The increasingly sophisticated tools at hackers’ disposal reinforces the need for comprehensive cybersecurity approaches involving people, processes, and technology that are relevant to detection, prediction, prevention, and rapid response.
