Thursday, October 27, 2022 | 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Princeton BioLabs • 303 College Road East, Suite A, Princeton, NJ
The life sciences industry continues to be a target of cybersecurity crime and is subject to other related risks as well. Cyber criminals bank on being able to access and compromise Patient and research data through the IT systems of 3rd-party vendors on which life sciences companies frequently rely.


Fortunately, all companies ─ even those with limited cybersecurity personnel and resources ─ can mitigate these risks through low-cost and easy-to-implement vendor management strategies, cybersecurity risk assessments and cybersecurity employee awareness training.


Join us on October 27 at Princeton BioLabs for a BioNJ IT/Cybersecurity Awareness Breakfast Briefing to learn from experts about practical ways to better protect both your Patient and research data from cybersecurity crime and other cybersecurity risks. Experts will discuss the risks, needs and critical considerations essential to all life sciences-related businesses ─ both large and small.
