If Covid-19 has taught all of us one thing, it is that the most critical industry in this world is one which helps us to save human lives, supports health care, and gets us vaccines and medicines we all need to live and fight such deadly diseases, everything else is Secondary. Life science is one of the most critical and heavily regulated industries and holds the most sensitive and protected health Care information. In this paper, we will talk about how SAP Cloud Solutions using artificial intelligence (AI), is joining forces with Cyber Security to protect sensitive data for the life science industry by using a cloud-first approach and using artificial intelligence (AI), automation, data, and analytics in one unified environment. We will further deep dive and conclude how SAP cloud services like business technology platform (BTP) using SAP enterprise threat detection (ETD) will provide an end-to-end holistic cyber resiliency and help enterprises from life science industries comply with data protection regulations worldwide.
