Life science companies are experiencing a significant transformation in how they bring new products to market.
Organizations must adapt to changes in the marketplace, such as global product commercialization, specialized medicine, new regulations, new payment models, and new technology that are driving more product variety, smaller drug volumes, and shorter product life cycles.
To meet the needs of this new commercial model, life science companies must re-envision the global supply chain and evolve the tools they use to run their business. The supply chain that was designed for launching blockbuster products will not work in the future.
Today, the global supply chain relies on a manual, paper-based process centered on printing documents and sending them via overnight mail, fax, or e-mail with scanned attachments. This time-consuming and costly process is errorprone, tedious for customers and team members, and vulnerable to security and compliance risks.

If your company is engaged in international activities, it's critical that you assess and understand the risks of non-compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). To avoid becoming a costly statistic, you need to design your controls accordingly.
Download this white paper from experts Joseph Howell, Cofounder and Executive Vice President at Workiva, and Brent Macey, Director of Internal Audit for Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc. They'll discuss the major components of the FCPA, and how companies can perform the risk assessment process in an efficient manner. They'll also provide a practical guide to implement internal controls for FCPA at an international level.
Workiva commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic ImpactTM study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Wdesk for Controls Management. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Wdesk on their organizations and how it can be leveraged to optimize the processes necessary to deliver Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance.
This in-depth financial summary finds a 238% three-year, risk-adjusted ROI for a large auto parts retailer. Key outcomes include reduced the effort required to formulate and update processes and controls for SOX compliance resulting in a three-year benefit of $190,568, and simplified audit efforts with improved audit trails in financial controls, delivering three-year present value benefits of $128,965.

While the report topic In 2015, collaboration is the name of the game in procurement and frequently entails working with key internal stakeholders (like line-of-business managers and legal departments) or preferred suppliers to drive greater value through sourcing and procurement. For Chief Procurement Officers ("CPOs") and other supply management leaders, collaboration has taken on many new and innovative forms over the years, causing these executives to leverage new (and, in some cases, existing) processes, relationships, and technologies to enhance compliance, decrease risk, and increase savings. One such business process, contract management, has been reborn with digital, automated features that can shift the way procurement teams collaborate, mitigate risk, drive performance, and realize greater savings for the enterprise.
This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations
use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt
to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure.
And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions
from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that
big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes
how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for
regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting
capabilities, to stop threats.
GDPR compliance can be achieved through a combination of people, processes and technology. This document has described solutions that can help organizations with their GDPR journey. But you can extend that protection and strengthen security controls even further via strong and risk authentication or workload automation for the processing automation of personal data helping you comply with GDPR as well as similar mandates. Regulations tend to set the minimum standards to be required, but in the application economy, open enterprises must ensure due diligence to protect one of the most important and critical assets: private customer information.

Regulatory compliance is more than a series of rules to adhere to, and getting it right could save you time and money.
Historically, compliance has been regarded as a checklist of fixed requirements. But this reactive outlook risks being too short-sighted. It can lead to higher compliance costs, audit deficiencies, greater business downtime and an increased risk of data loss. Furthermore, it can lead to missed opportunities to achieve greater levels of operational effectiveness for your business.
The only way to achieve a greater level of operational efficiency is to adopt a proactive strategy and stay ahead of the compliance curve.
