Each year, approximately 1 million people around the world die from counterfeit drugs, which account for 30 percent of global drug sales.
2015 survey by Crown Records Management: nearly two-thirds of pharma companies have suffered serious data breaches while a quarter have been hacked. This comes as little surprise as the intellectual property (IP) relating to the drug formulation process is a global business that cost $75 billion in 2010, according to estimates made by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy.
