Collaborate Safely Using Critical Security Intelligence



Rising Risk in the Biotech Industry 

As the biotech industry continues to experience significant growth, high-caliber talent recruitment is critical for organizations. For that reason, many Fortune 500 biotech companies employ researchers from around the world. Yet in recent years, this recruitment structure has become increasingly risky due to the rising amount of state-sponsored IP and talent theft attempts. 

For example, in 2021 husband-and-wife scientists, Yu Zhou and Li Chen, were sentenced to prison for over two years for conspiring to steal trade secrets from Nationwide Children’s Hospital's Research Institute, where they were employed for ten years. The couple intended to use these trade secrets to benefit the company they started in China with the assistance of the PRC government. 

This incident serves as one of many examples of how the PRC government is actively targeting individuals working overseas to extract trade secrets to achieve their national objectives. 

In this rising risk climate, many biotech research organizations are looking for solutions to help safeguard their IP, technology, and talent.
