RESPONSUM in Life Sciences Sector

GDPR in Life Sciences

In the life sciences industry, the GDPR has particular significance as the sector usually implies the collection, use, and processing of sensitive personal (health) data, e.g.: in clinical trials and research studies. 

This means that researchers and life sciences companies must make GDPR compliance a top priority, resulting in both excellent documentation and implementation of GDPR principles and processes across the organization.

Taking into account principles like data minimization, integrity, confidentiality,… , or the various data subject rights, it’s clear research and life sciences companies have a lot to take into account.
