GDPR and Data Protection in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Course summary

Course description

Are you GDPR ready?

Since its beginning, the pharmaceutical industry has used and depended on personal data.

Under the new GDPR, this data is subject to higher standards of protection since much of the data utilised is considered ‘sensitive personal data’. The implementation of GDPR is intended to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe and provide greater data protection rights to the individual, which will introduce stricter provisions for the pharmaceutical industry; particularly in clinical trials and pharmacovigilance. GDPR brings with it serious implications for non-compliance and therefore, in such a heavily regulated industry, it is crucial to understand how to follow the correct methods of compliance. Attendees will have the opportunity to cement this knowledge through interactive case studies.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The course is relevant for anyone working in clinical research who could benefit from an in-depth understanding of the data protection laws and their implementation, those who are in a position with the responsibility of managing data within clinical or regulatory affairs, and those who are regulatory affairs professionals in the pharmaceutical industry.
