A Guide To Protecting Your Life Science Lab
Your #1 Ransomware Vulnerability
At the recent RSA conference in San Francisco Lisa Monaco, the US Deputy Attorney General announced Biotech and Drug Companies have surpassed the financial sector as the most attacked vertical in the last 90 days.
Cybercriminals previously relied on phishing tactics that required social engineering, a slower and more tedious process, to launch attacks. In 2023, cybercriminals have popularized a faster, more efficient approach to carrying out ransomware attacks on biotech companies by exploiting a vulnerability unique to the industry… the labs!
Novartis made headlines for the wrong reasons when the group responsible for their ransomware attack reported they stole data “directly from the manufacturing facility’s laboratory environment.” The breach was just one of the many incidents involving ransomware attacks targeting labs. More recently, Sun Pharma fell victim to ransomware and is expected to take a financial hit.
While Sun Pharma and Novartis are billion-dollar companies, any lab, no matter how small, is a potential entry point and target for a ransomware attack.
In light of this, we have put together a guide on protecting your life science lab where we share:
Most significant security concerns for managers of life science labs
The methods being used to infiltrate these lab environments
3 ways to increase security with little effort and no financial investment
How to mitigate the dangers of remote access for personal devices
What the future of security for life science labs looks like
Protect your lab and prevent your company from becoming the next ransomware victim
