Defensive Lines - a report by our cyber response team

All areas of business face a ramping-up of cyber risk and attacks. The life sciences sector also encounters specific areas of exposure through the handling of sensitive data at scale, and involvement in major health response efforts like COVID-19 vaccination.  

Mills & Reeve’s cyber response team has undertaken a substantial research project in relation to cyber risks and attacks, involving over 100 clients and contacts in a range of key sectors. In collaboration with Aon, the team surveyed legal, risk, compliance and human resources functions to better understand how they prepare and respond to cyber attacks. The findings form the basis of a detailed report: Defensive Lines.

In this short video, cyber response team lead Jagvinder Singh Kang introduces the report: Defensive Lines: Understanding how to better prepare and respond to a cyber attack - YouTube  

If you would like to know more, and receive a copy of the report, get in touch with your usual Mills & Reeve contact, or reach out to Jagvinder  or Helen Tringham for more information.
