Cyberbiosecurity for biopharmaceutical products

Cybersecurity for biopharmaceutical manufacturing? The "rapid pace of innovation dictates that it is not too early to consider the cyberbiosecurity implications" of the potential dangers that can arise in the industry, argue Mantle et al. in this 2019 paper published in Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology. From compromised master cell banks to intentional corruption of " the design, reading, and writing of DNA sequences to produce pathogenic, self-replicating entities," the authors demonstrate worst case scenarios and practical considerations that scientists should be considering when incorporating various forms of automation into biopharmaceutical manufacturing. After presenting their scenarios and considerations, they conclude that "current best practices from industrial manufacturing and state-of-the-art cybersecurity could serve as a starting point to safeguard and mitigate against cyberbiosecurity threats to biomanufacturing."

A Guide for Management: Successfully Applying Laboratory Systems to Your Organization’s Work

This recorded Lab Informatics Tutorial series is designed as a management level view of laboratory systems and is appropriate for anyone planning, reviewing, or approving the acquisition of laboratory informatics. A background in science is not necessary to follow the presented material. Its purpose is to provide you with an understanding of how these technologies (Laboratory Information Management Systems, Electronic Laboratory Notebooks, Scientific Data Management Systems, Laboratory Execution Systems, Instrument Data Systems, and supporting technologies ) can be used to support/improve your labs operations, and the considerations that need to be taken into account before they are purchased.
