In the highly-regulated pharmaceutical industry data management is essential. Pharmaceutical companies are responsible for protecting vast quantities of highly-sensitive, confidential data to data protection laws and stringent legislative health standards. Pharmaceutical companies essentially are both producers and consumers of vast quantities of sensitive data, stemming from initial research, through patent filing, ongoing clinical research, the issuing of licenses, the manufacturing process and continual dissemination of information to the medical community. With R & D budgets running into the millions, protecting research and personal data up to and beyond the point of product launch is critical to success.
By only enabling access to data by those who need it, the risk of data loss reduces substantially. Data access is driven by classification so that only users with the correct permissions can see your sensitive information.
When it comes to classifying data, the Boldon James Classifier360 approach blends best practice classification techniques, combining user driven classification and automated classification for accurate and useful labelling that reflects your business’ data protection policy. It’s this blend of techniques that makes us a valuable part of the workflow in many pharmaceutical organisations worldwide.
DLP and encryption tools can be driven by classification metadata, allowing for better security performance, keeping strategies, R & D and product trial information safer.
Boldon James Classifier enforces corporate policy on the handling and distribution of sensitive information, and customisable visual labelling empowers users to take ownership and responsibility for data by making them more aware of the value of the data they are using. It is therefore vital for an organisation to know whether this data contains any intellectual property (IP); and what and how they need to share information with trusted partners.
