Zielsetzung

  • Get an overview of technologies discussed currently in the pharmaceutical environment
  • Learn what requirements are placed on the IT infrastructure and its qualification within the scope of GMP regulations
  • Principles outlined can be applied to Operation Technology (OT) for production systems
  • IT security and cybersecurity has now taken on a central role; here you will learn about the importance of the IT infrastructure in terms of an appropriate IT security concept
  • Case studies show you qualification approaches for key IT infrastructure components
  • Virtualization is a part of the IT infrastructure; learn strategies for qualifying the virtual machine and the virtualization platform

Hintergrund

In today’s pharmaceutical environment, the IT infrastructure is the backbone for the application of a wide range of software solutions. The requirements for IT security are becoming increasingly important. Only a robust IT infrastructure with suitable network topologies and security concepts can guarantee the appropriate security here.

Pharmaceutical regulations contain few or only indirect requirements for the IT infrastructure. The principles of the EU GMP guidelines state “The application should be validated, the IT infrastructure should be qualified”. Here the phrase “should” corresponds to a “must”! Further information can be found in the revised version of the GAMP® Good Practice Guide “IT Infrastructure Control and Compliance” published in August 2017.

Zielgruppe

The Live Online Training is aimed at managers from the pharmaceutical industry, suppliers and service companies who plan, qualify and operate IT infrastructure in a GxP Environment.

Technical Requirements

For our webinars, we use Cisco WebEx, one of the leading suppliers of online meetings. At https://www.webex.com/test-meeting.html you can check if your system meets the necessary requirements for the participation at a WebEx meeting and at the same time install the necessary plug-in. Please just enter your name and email address for the test. If the installation is not possible because of your rights for the computer system, please contact your IT department. WebEx is a standard nowadays and the necessary installation is fast and easy.
