In this episode, Sarah Bruno and LiLing Poh discuss recent trends as organizations invest more in technology through the acquisition of new platforms or programs, or by working with a vendor to bring a product to market. Exploring a case study involving a global pharmaceutical company on the rollout of a health-related digital app, they discuss key considerations related to cross-border considerations; the nature of data, regions data is collected from, and other security provisions; coordinating with vendors, middlemen and other third-parties; reasonable security for information exchange and working with in-house IT teams; industry considerations in highly regulated sectors; corruption considerations; and the ownership and protection of intellectual property.
