With the development of information technology, digitalisation and data are on everyone’s mind and are expanding in leaps and bounds in the life sciences industry. To tackle the problem of ensuring data security in the future digitalization and digital-driven development, Trends in the Life Sciences Industry (Cyber Security for Life Sciences 2022) outlines the cyber security risks posed by each innovation and proposes key cyber security measures by identifying emerging industry trends in the life sciences sector, such as smart body implants, AI-/ML-based medical diagnostic devices and treatment devices, the use of blockchain technology, decentralised production and Industry 5.0, based on digital and data-driven trends.

In today’s rapidly changing world, it is essential for life sciences companies to take advantage of the growth opportunities offered by digitalisation and data. However, if there is no security, the trust of patients, the medical community, and society, as well as the reputation and management of companies, will face great challenges and risks. This report will help companies analyze risks in the digital world and provide innovative ideas for initiating preventive protection measures as well as detective controls and capabilities to respond to cyber attacks need to be initiated.
