Information Security for the Food, Drug and Life Sciences Sector
In the interest of public health, food and medicine products are subject to strict regulations. Production, storage, delivery and quality controls are governed by international laws and agreements. Companies are also required to document their compliance with these various safety standards and must safely store these records and protect them from manipulation.
Requirements for electronic records are part of the EU’s Good Manufacturing Practice, Title 21 CFR Part 11 of the FDA and the USDA’s HACCP guidelines. To maintain a complete audit trail, pharmaceutical and food industries must have adequate software solutions capable of managing access to sensitive data.
