Last week we were honored to team up with the FBI (in partnership with the Cyber Center of Excellence (CCOE)) and Biocom on behalf of our biotech heros. The team hosted an exclusive executive-level briefing on cybersecurity specifically tailored to San Diego’s life sciences industry. This Biocom-member webinar contained an overview of the security challenges companies are facing in 2020 and beyond. In addition to industry-specific advice and an overview of current insider threats, the FBI left us with the following FBI cybersecurity resources and covid-19 recommendations.
