Mazars Life Sciences: Cyber Security Program & Compliance

Biopharmaceuticals Provider

Project Description

Biopharmaceutical organization in rapid growth requiring a  Information and Cyber Security Program to comply with the requirements of the Federal Government.


This biopharmaceuticals organization was going through a rapid growth period and as the company grew, it did not have an Information and Cyber Security Program to meet the demands of its business. Additionally, as their business grew, so did their compliance requirements with the Federal Government.

While they had the a few procedures and a couple of technical solutions in place, they did not have a robust and compliant Cyber Security Program. The client needed to achieve the following goals and objectives:

  • Identify and comply with the appropriate compliance frameworks
  • Develop and implement a comprehensive cyber security strategy for the enterprise
  • Implement scalable technical solutions to protect identified the organization


We worked with the organization to develop a new Cyber Security Program and comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), including the following activities:

  • Conducted a security assessment
  • Established a cyber security strategy
  • Developed security policies, procedures and solutions
  • Created security documentation to achieve FISMA compliance
  • Assisted in presentations to the Board of Directors and Sr. Leadership on cyber security


Our team developed a compliant, scalable, and sustainable Cyber Security Program that met the organization’s business requirements. The strategic initiative provided the following benefits:

  • Developed a cyber security framework based on organizational requirements and leading best practices
  • Complied with FISMA and other security compliance frameworks
  • Developed appropriate policies, procedures and tools
  • Established mechanisms to protect data, assess security impacts and monitor the program on an on-going basis
  • Enhanced awareness and understanding of cyber security
