  • Building a Blueprint for an Insider Threat Program Building a Blueprint for an Insider Threat Program Jadee Hanson, Dir of Security, Code 42; Joji Montelibano, Rockwell; Chris Walcutt, Black & Veatch; Brandon Dunlap (Moderator) Recorded: Mar 16 2017 58 mins
    While infosecurity teams are playing defense against external threats, they cannot lose sight of the threat that insiders at their organization pose. Employees, contractors and business associates can all have accounts which provide them legitimate access to systems within the enterprise, but that access can carry significant risk. Detecting, monitoring and preventing such unauthorized access and exflitration is critical. Building an Insider threat program to manage such functions can help an organization get visibility into the problem and streamline these efforts. But where does an organization start when building such a program? What underpinnings need to be in place in order to have success with a program? Get an inside scoop on what it is really like to build and run these types of programs; what are insiders really doing and what are they stealing. Join Code42 and (ISC)2 on March 16, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a discussion on how to construct an effective insider threat program.

  • Approval and access: Overcoming the final hurdle of drug development Approval and access: Overcoming the final hurdle of drug development Professor Luca Pani, University of Miami, Angelika Joos,MSD (Europe) Inc. Ana Palma, Sobi, Belgium Recorded: Mar 10 2017 61 mins
    2017 is once again a year of significant change for pharma market access in Europe, with affordability on the agenda for almost every country in the region. There is a move toward greater collaboration in health technology assessment and more transparency between countries for pricing, therapeutic protocols and and details of negotiations with drug manufacturers. We also see member states working to understand the process of enabling cost-effective patient access to personalised and high-cost treatments, such as new oncology combination therapies, antibiotics and stem cell therapies, which offer the promise of efficacy in key disease areas.

    With market access being referred to as the “fourth hurdle” in drug development (beyond efficacy, safety and quality), it is vital that the requirements for both approval and access are addressed early in the process. Parallel scientific advice from HTA bodies and regulators is increasing to deliver tangible and successful strategies, but is the process smooth enough to overcome the challenges from both sides?

    pharmaphorum in partnership with DIA will be hosting an expert panel debating the best way forward for life sciences companies, payers and providers in this emerging European market access paradigm.

    Join our webinar to hear from experts in industry and healthcare discussing the challenges and solutions of access in the changing European market.
    Topics up for discussion include:

  • Analytical Strategies for Comparability in Bioprocess Development Analytical Strategies for Comparability in Bioprocess Development Christine P. Chan, Ph.D & Joe Barco, Ph.D. Mar 28 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Comparability exercises are commonly required at certain milestones during drug development as well as after product registration when changes are implemented into the manufacturing process. The goal is to evaluate if the product remains highly similar (not necessarily identical) before and after the change in terms of quality and stability and have no adverse impact on safety and efficacy predicted for the patients. This assessment requires product-specific knowledge gathered through drug development, taking a totality-of-evidence approach. The different levels of information are obtained from analytical studies for characterization of the molecule, animal studies for toxicity, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics for pharmacological activities, and clinical studies for safety/tolerability, immunogenicity and efficacy. This Webinar discusses strategies and considerations for analytical characterization of protein structure and function which forms the foundation of the comparability demonstration.

    Sponsored by Unchained Labs

    Presentation Title: Limber up your lab with better tools for comparing biologics

    There’s no magic bullet when it comes to characterizing a protein by structure or function. Specific tests may work for one molecule but not the next. Instrumentation that provides a high degree of flexibility, balanced with low sample consumption and faster time to result, is crucial to keep up with ever changing laboratory needs. Unchained Labs puts biologics characterization front and center for our instrumentation development. We will discuss how our instruments let researchers be more flexible and efficient, while also providing clear data to help make comparability assessments.

    Pharmacists are highly trained healthcare professionals who have a deep understanding of medicines and daily contact with patients and consumers. This puts them in a unique position in terms of being able to maximise the benefits that patients get from their medicines – however, healthcare systems and pharmaceutical companies frequently overlook this potential.
    Pharmacists are especially well placed to help patients with multiple long-term conditions manage their health and medications, and pharmacist-led interventions have been shown to have a very significant impact on compliance and disease management in the community.
    We present a webinar debate in which our expert panel will discuss how pharmaceutical companies can work in collaboration with pharmacists in Europe to help patients make the most of their medicines, help generate data to prove the value of these interventions, and above all get the right medicine to the right patients and consumers.
    Join us and the PHOENIX group as we look at the practical steps needed to make this a reality. Key topics to be discussed include:
    •The challenges of identifying the right patient population across European markets
    •Understanding how pharmacists can play a greater role in patient care, e.g. improved adherence and outcomes
    •How optimum use of pharmacy level information can contribute to providing ‘real world’ evidence of treatments

    Webinar Date & Time: Mar 30 2017 12:00 p.m. EST

    Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cells, which are engineered to recognize target cell surface antigens expressed on tumor cells, have shown promise to affect complete remission in patients with B-cell malignancies. However, applying this approach to target solid tumors has resulted in adverse effects in clinical studies. Methods for testing different models of CAR-T cells in vitro can provide further insight into viable antigen targets. Historically, two-dimensional (2D) cell culture models have been used in drug discovery. However, more elaborate, three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models better mimic the in vivo tumor microenvironment and help bridge the gap between in vitro studies and clinical outcomes.

    A brute force attack is one of the more common types of attack that malicious actors use to try and gain access to your IT servers, applications and data. These attacks are relatively simple for attackers to implement and they can wreak havoc on your organization when successful. However, many IT security teams may not be aware that they are at risk from these attacks, or what to do about them.

    Join us for a live demo where we'll demonstrate how the AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) approach, delivered as a SaaS solution with our USM Anywhere offering, can help you detect and investigate these types of attacks.

    You'll learn:

    - How attackers can use brute force attacks to gain access to your network
    - Steps you can take BEFORE an attack to identify systems or applications that may be at greater risk
    - How USM Anywhere can alert you immediately of brute force attacks targeting your cloud, hybrid cloud and on-premises environments

  • Modernizing Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing: From Batch to Continuous Production Modernizing Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing: From Batch to Continuous Production Robert Dream Jul 19 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The importance and value of continuous bioprocessing, both upstream and downstream has economic and sustainability advantages and due to the modular nature of continuous bioprocesses means that industry is able to adapt more rapidly to changing market demands. Continuous biopharmaceutical manufacturing in the context of other industries that have already successfully adopted continuous processing. Factor other than scientific ones, are the barriers to change from batch to continuous production. an excellent example of the manufacturing strategies of the steel industry in the 20th century, when this industrial sector incrementally switched from batch to continuous operations. biopharmaceutical industry has reached a stage that requires a change in the production paradigm. For a certain class of biopharmaceutical products upstream continuous manufacturing has always been applied: for example, unstable proteins that rapidly degrade in the culture broth. In order to obtain a high quality product, the residence time in the reactor must be minimized. This can only be achieved with continuous cultivation and preferably with perfusion reactors. a brief overview on the types of cell retention devices currently used in biopharmaceutical industry.
    Furthermore, this is a universal production platform that can be extended to other classes of products, such as antibodies, which are relatively stable molecules. continuous manufacturing is as productive and with a much smaller footprint of the manufacturing plant, avoiding multiple non-value added unit operations. In essence, the investment for a continuous plant is much smaller compared to a batch-operated one.
