Having a Secure Server in the Pharmaceutical Industry
Benefits of Having a Secure Server:
- All data secured
- Unique network security
- Proactive approach to communication strategies
Communication in the pharmaceutical industry needs to address unique concerns within its field. Network security is a top priority due to the highly competitive nature business and the confidential requirement of pharmacy records and information. However, other communication concerns cannot be compromised to accommodate security. Here’s a look at typical communication and security issues for pharmaceutical companies and why it’s important to select a multimedia consultant that can manage all aspects of these elements.
Research and Development
Research and development is the core of most pharmaceutical companies. Communication in this area revolves around discovery and pipeline status and is highly susceptible to competitive intelligence from other pharma businesses. Furthermore, communication must take into account factors like global clinical trials and research conducted in foreign countries. Internet correspondence, the main means of communication, must therefore address the following:
- security of classified data
- international data transmission
- large file sizes containing laboratory logs and clinical data
- need for sophisticated graphics depicting things like molecular structures, anatomical diagrams and chemical interactions
- FDA and other governing body regulations
Corporate communication can be every bit as sensitive as research and development. Mergers and acquisitions, contracting and stock market analyses are common topics of both telecommunications and Internet correspondence. Global transmissions are again a large portion of corporate communication. Other issues include:
- video communication and live conferencing
- high-volume mass email campaigns
- HR and personnel correspondence
- stockholder communication
- marketing, PR and sales materials
- large files in spreadsheet formats
- electronic signatures
Field Sales Data Transmission
Even with the most effective secure servers at headquarters, breaches can occur through field sales data transmission. Sales representatives and account managers need to be able to send and receive real-time data and metrics without compromising security. While login gatekeeping can be improved through tokens and laptop password protection, a serious threat to cyber security today is the use of employee personal devices, such as mobile phones and tablets, while on the job. While BYOD, or bring your own device, policies can save pharmaceutical companies money on equipment and service plans, it opens up corporate data to potential hacking.
