Federal laws and regulations mandate to put controls and measures on a company network to ensure security and data integrity. Examples are 21 CFR Part 11, Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and HIPAA. With this legislation IT infrastructure and network qualification and compliance become a much more recognizable issue at higher levels of management. However currently there is no official guideline and the situation is similar to what happened with computer validation in early 90's and with early Part 11 issues. Until there will be an industry wide accepted approach companies either waste valuable resources because doing too much or take a risk to fail inspections because not doing enough or doing it wrong. With FDA's renewed focus on computer validation and IT systems, industry is looking for advice on how to comply for networks and infrastructure. This seminar will have the answers. During the seminar, the speaker will go through the requirements and give practical recommendations for cost-effective qualification. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, templates and examples will help trouble-free implementation.
