Cybersecurity of Genomic Data
The advent of low-cost genomic sequencing technologies has ushered in an era where it is now possible to sequence and analyze an entire genome quickly and affordably. The vast amounts of genomic data collected have helped fuel our nation’s economic and health leadership posture; however, this information may not be protected with sufficient rigor.
Genomic cybersecurity guidance can aid organizations by 1) protecting them against data misuse which could harm individuals, companies, and nations and 2) enabling secure collaborative innovations.
