Level:  Intermediate

The presentation will introduce a Secure Data Management framework, and define, analyze and evaluate its working principles and components. It will provide a structure to answer questions like – where are the data assets? How can these assets be protected and secured? Is accurate and current data being used to make business decisions? Is the right master data used for information integration with business partners? Can compliance with US, European, Canadian and Asia-Pacific data regulatory requirements be assured?

For example, a global pharma/biotech company outsources Drug Development to multiple global Contract Research Organizations (CROs), enables clinical trials and patient management using Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs), but must ensure consistent data management across these sites and solution providers.

The presentation will recommend a path forward for IT departments.

The presentation will walk through actionable data management and governance strategies that can be used to improve business data quality and mitigate security, compliance and privacy risk. We will also share the need to partner with key stakeholders like vendors, legal, etc and evaluate "what worked and what did not work", and provide key takeaways and lessons learned.
