Day 3 Keynote
Leading Innovation Through Responsible Data Sharing
Sarah Lyons, General Manager, Privacy Analytics, Canada
Data-driven insights are critical to addressing the challenges the current pandemic has introduced, and data access and sharing are necessary features to collaboration and innovation. As pharmaceutical companies focus their efforts on rapid change and development to address this, we have an incredible opportunity to learn.  
Companies that are succeeding with their data sharing strategies can show: 
  • Which analytics can be applied to create value  
  • Where to focus application or infrastructure development 
  • How to defend critical data from attacks 
  • What it takes to persuade regulators that data is safe to access and share 
Join Sarah Lyons, General Manager at Privacy Analytics, one of the world’s leading data transformation companies, as she and a guest – a leader in transformational data strategies from the pharmaceutical space – explore the insights and experiences we’ve learned so far. Keynote Session 3, 9:00am - 10:00am, July 21, 2021
