WTW at the LSX World Congress 2022


About the LSX World Congress

For the last seven years, the LSX World Congress has been bringing together the executives that matter to the future of healthcare and life science strategy, investment, partnering and deal making.

LSX World Congress gathers the founders and CEOs of innovative start-ups through to publicly healthcare giants, and everyone in between.

It represents the breadth and depth of the cutting-edge research and technology driving the advances in the industry right now and in the near future.

Who is attending?

The biotech, healthtech and medtech industry’s c-suite will be joined by the sector’s most active investors, pharma and health technology business development and licensing (BD&L) teams, research and development (R&D) leaders, key opinion leaders (KOL) and top tier service companies who are driving the sector forward.

In an industry as dynamic as this, LSX World Congress brings together the people who are developing technologies, solutions and new business models to tackle the biggest healthcare challenges in the industry today, and helps answer the question; what’s next and how do we get there?

WTW is pleased to be sponsoring the LSX World Congress in 2022, helping to provide an insurance and risk management perspective.

Managing Risk In The New World – Security, Data, Resilience In The Biopharma Supply Chain

Join us on Wednesday 11 May 2022, 11:00am – 12:00pm UK time

The last 24 months have been quite historic for organisations within the life sciences and healthcare industries. In addition to the obvious global COVID-19 response, businesses have continued to grow and evolve in cyber terms.

Whether it be innovations in cyber-enabled treatments or therapies, or making the best use of technology to support efficient delivery of organisational objectives and business strategies, one thing is clear – the industry is at the very forefront of the cyber operating environment.

With this level of innovation, the heightened degree of interaction within the cyber space, and in considering the ‘data heavy’ and highly regulated nature of the industry, all against a backdrop of growing and emerging cyber threats, it is crucial that life science sand healthcare organisations of all types view cyber risk as being amongst, if not the, biggest risks to their businesses.

  • What does the cyber threat landscape look like for this industry?
  • Have cyber security practices kept pace with innovation and the implementation of new technologies?
  • Is the convergence of the physical and virtual domains fully understood by this industry, and what are the risks in this space?
  • How can organisations better protect themselves in the now, and what or where should they focus their efforts in looking ahead?
