What You Need To Know For Validated Systems?

Instances of cyberattacks that lead to disruption of service, data theft or compromise and even ransomware are making the news headlines of late with alarming frequency. Cyberattacks are carried out because computer systems used in highly regulated companies house very sensitive and valuable information.

Data relating to valuable electronic submissions, clinical information, medical device design control records, legal information, and other such information are usually placed in these systems, which is what makes them targets of cyberattacks. Cyber attackers have become so sophisticated and emboldened in recent times that they have not even spared the White House.

Computer Systems Validation has a major role

Companies that hold vital information should ask themselves many questions on this topic. Some of these include: Will my company able to cope with a breach of one of our validated systems? How secure is the information we have stored in the cloud? Are we conducting adequate due diligence on our cloud provider?

Even as the dependence on the cloud, by which life sciences companies are increasingly implementing and deploying systems in a cloud environment goes up; the procedures and controls to effectively manage and protect their validated systems environments is somewhat inadequate.

In the current situation of higher and stronger attacks on computer systems unaided by solid safety and security guarantees; Computer Systems Validation (CSV) has a critical role to play. Validation engineers need to take a serious relook at testing strategies. They must look at systems that provide objective evidence that computer systems have the requisite technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access.

There is an acute need for validation engineers to be more vigilant in today’s systems environment that is sometimes hostile, in order to detect and prevent cybersecurity issues before they become real problems. Proper and diligent CSV goes a long way in helping to ensure that this happens.

Valuable learning on lean validation 

The ways of doing this will be the learning a valuable webinar from Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance. Valarie King-Bailey, who is the CEO of OnShore Technology Group, an independent Chicago-based consultancy founded in 2004 specializing in Independent Validation and Verification (IV&V) services and solutions; will be the speaker at this webinar.

Please enroll for this webinar by visiting concept of Cybersecurity Qualification

Full aspects of cybersecurity

The regulatory, legal, compliance and business risks associated with the threat of cybersecurity constitute the core of this webinar. It will address the unique threat of cyberattacks on validated systems environments and discuss how to mitigate and protect validated systems.

As validation engineers continue to conduct IQ, OQ, PQ, CyQ testing must be added as a defense against cyberattacks to validate computer systems.  Valerie will discuss the NIST Cybersecurity framework and how it can be applied to validated computer systems. She will also discuss a new level of qualification for validated computer systems known as Cybersecurity Qualification (CyQ), a concept she will introduce at this webinar.

Being organized for the benefit of enterprise and validation professionals such as validation engineer, validation project manager or software quality engineer, and IT Managers, Directors, VPs, Chief Information Officers, Quality Assurance/Quality Control Managers, Validation Engineers, Validation Project Managers and Program/Project Managers; this webinar will cover the following areas:

o  The Cyber Threat Megatrends: What You Need to Know for Validated Systems

o  Understanding Cybersecurity Regulatory Guidance and Standards

o  Cybersecurity Qualification: The NEXT Frontier

o  Automated Testing in the Cloud

o  Top 20 Critical Security Controls for Validated Systems

o  Cloud Security Technology Maturity

o  Cloud Quality Assurance & Governance

o  The Changing State of Computer Systems Validation in a Cyber World

o  Understanding the NIST Cybersecurity Framework for Validated Systems.
