Ypsomed is a leader in the development and manufacturing of injection and infusion systems. The company is keenly aware of the multi-billion dollar problem of poor medication adherence and the need to measure medicine intake and ensure doses are taken at the correct time.
Ypsomed sought to create a digital solution for medication adherence monitoring and smart device management for contract research organizations’ (CROs) use in clinical trials, including self-injection systems for trial participants to administer medications at home. Yet the company faced serious demands for remote device management, global scale, and privacy and security regulations such as HIPAA and GDPR.
To solve these challenges, Ypsomed adopted Philips’ HealthSuite digital platform (HSDP), a cloud platform built on Amazon Web Services (AWS). HSDP allows Ypsomed to connect devices to the cloud and remotely manage them; store data; and manage and scale services globally within healthcare regulatory, privacy, and s

Data is the DNA of modern healthcare. As healthcare technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and patient data management and security evolve, emerging approaches for disease treatment and prevention—like precision medicine and healthcare content management—are becoming more necessary. Precision medicine is about moving from generic to more precise, population-focused diagnostics and treatment by factoring in data from patients’ genes, environment, lifestyle factors and family history, into clinical decision-making for earlier, more accurate diagnoses, and more effective treatment and prevention. Data is at the heart of enabling doctors and scientists to execute on this mission. Additionally, rapidly changing regulations throughout the world are affecting the management of all healthcare data. Infinidat removes data management barriers from this level of data interaction by removing isolated islands of storage and allowing much more data to reside on a single, high-performance, h

As customers demand and expect more of a digitized experience, the scale and volume of secure data that’s being transmitted across the network is increasing exponentially. At the same time, across the APAC region high digital connectivity, contrasted with low cybersecurity awareness, growing cross-border data transfers and weak regulations have made this data a global target.
The growth in the “as-a-service” nature of the cybercrime marketplace is also fueling an increase in the number of traditional crime groups and individuals drawn into cyber offending. New sources of vulnerability from mobile, BYOD, CYOD, web-services and IoT devices are further broadening the cyber threat landscape with ever-more sophisticated forms of malware and DDoS attacks.

The importance of information security and data protection is growing by the day for organizations. This is due to an evolving threat landscape and a higher adoption of internet dependent services, which, in the process of creating new opportunities, also lead to more vulnerabilities. As a consequence, national and international regulations are also changing according to the new challenges, calling for better preparedness. The new BCI Information Security Report 2017 sponsored by Mimecast looks to benchmark how organizations handle sensitive data and how resilient organizations are when it comes to data protection.
How a security rationalization process helps CISOs optimize your security infrastructure while improving the bottom line. Whether you’ve over-invested in security tools, under-invested, don’t know the extent of your security capabilities or you’re facing new regulations that require you to demonstrate and continually maintain compliance — there is a path forward. To understand and optimize what you have in place, as well as gaps you may have, develop a security rationalization process to calculate the return on your security investments.
Read this paper to learn the five steps needed to get started.
As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures. As enterprises rapidly expand their footprints into cloud, mobile and social, they must ensure that the right users have the right access to sensitive data and applications. Strong as well as optimized identities are becoming increasingly important as insider threat and tightened regulations become more prevalent.
SecureWorks provides an early warning system for evolving cyber threats, enabling organisations to prevent, detect, rapidly respond to and predict cyber attacks. Combining unparalleled visibility into the global threat landscape and powered by the Counter Threat Platform — our advanced data analytics and insights engine —SecureWorks minimises risk and delivers actionable, intelligence driven security solutions for clients around the world.
Cybercriminals can be goal-driven and patient, and they often have a singular focus, plenty of time and access to vast, modern technical resources. Both organized and forum-based criminals are working constantly to find innovative and efficient ways to steal information and money with the lowest risk to their personal freedom. If we wish to stay “one step ahead” of the threats detailed in this report, awareness of online criminal threats, techniques and markets is our best defense.
Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
