Abstract

In the rapidly advancing landscape of biotechnology, laboratories, and healthcare research, the criticality of robust cybersecurity risk management techniques cannot be overstated. As these industries increasingly rely on interconnected technologies and digitized data for innovation and patient care, they become attractive targets for malicious cyber threats. This chapter underscores the paramount importance for biotechnology companies, laboratories, and healthcare research organizations to develop real-world and practical cybersecurity risk management techniques. By proactively addressing cybersecurity vulnerabilities, these entities can safeguard their sensitive data, protect intellectual property, ensure patient privacy, and maintain the trust of stakeholders. This chapter emphasizes the necessity of adopting effective cybersecurity strategies tailored to the specific needs of each sector, taking into account the dynamic threat landscape and the potential consequences of cyber incidents.
