Strengthening Cybersecurity in the Life Sciences Industry: KVALITO’s Tailoured Solutions with MGCC


Enhanced Requirement for Enhanced Cybersecurity

Like all countries across the globe, Malaysia’s cybersecurity landscape is rapidly evolving due to increasing cyber threats and significant legislative changes. According to the Cybersecurity Malaysia Mid-Year Report for 2023:

  • Major Targets: Government sectors and telecommunications have been primary targets, with over 417GB of data compromised in the first half of the year (World Trustmark and Trade Alliance, 2023; The Star, 2023).
  • Global Ranking: By Q3 2023, Malaysia ranked as the eighth most breached country globally, with 494,699 leaked accounts—a 144% increase in breach rate compared to the previous quarter (The Star, 2023).

These figures underscore the critical need for robust cybersecurity measures across all sectors. The Cyber Security Bill 2024 aims to enhance national cybersecurity frameworks by addressing existing gaps and raising protection standards. Despite these efforts, only 2% of Malaysian organisations have achieved a ‘Mature’ level of cybersecurity readiness, highlighting the urgent need for comprehensive defence strategies.

Focus on Life Sciences and Healthcare

The life sciences and healthcare sectors are highly susceptible to sophisticated cyberattacks, such as ransomware and phishing, which pose significant risks to patient privacy and organisational integrity (ClearData, 2023; Orrick, 2021). For instance, ransomware attacks can disrupt hospital operations, while phishing scams often lead to unauthorised access to sensitive patient data.

Cyber breaches can have devastating effects, including disrupting clinical trials, delaying regulatory approvals, and escalating recovery costs, all of which impact patient care and safety (Orrick, 2023). A notable example is a major cyberattack on a European clinical research organisation in 2020, which caused significant delays in crucial vaccine trials, highlighting the need for robust cybersecurity measures. Strengthening cybersecurity in these sectors is essential for protecting sensitive health data, maintaining quality and regulatory compliance, and ensuring uninterrupted healthcare services.
