Incredible Results

Protecting the “Cure for Cancer”

Trust Farm designed, developed, implemented and managed a comprehensive research security management program for a major cancer center in the United States that was a major target of foreign influence threat actors looking to steal the “cure for cancer”. The program effectively connected the primary internal stakeholder functions (e.g., compliance, legal, personnel security, cybersecurity, information security, human resources, risk management, and business units) to create a functional risk management team to remediate risks to the organization’s research assets, including the protection of its personnel, safeguarding of its patient data and research program information, and protecting its reputational, financial and operational interests.

Safeguarding Biopharmaceutical Research Pipeline

Trust Farm implemented and managed an Intellectual Property Protection Program (IPPP) for a major multinational biopharmaceutical company based in the United States. The IPPP is now considered a best-in-class risk management approach to protecting biopharmaceutical research pipelines. The impact of the IPPP has resulted in a global workforce that understands the threats posed by foreign influence threat actors and knowledge how to proactively safeguard research programs from compromise. Trust Farm leads other security advisory firms in its understanding of the biopharmaceutical industry and the specific risks, assets, and interests the industry faces. Our experience can provide biopharmaceutical companies competitive advantages by safeguarding their research and development pipelines, harden researcher and personnel vulnerabilities, manage third party risk, and protect the ROIs made to bring therapeutics to market.

Establishing Research Integrity Programs in Academia

Trust Farm has worked closely with major university systems in the United States to assist them with implementing programs that promote research integrity standards. Trust Farm specializes in balancing the implementation of research security management initiatives with preserving academic freedoms and international collaborations.
