Product counterfeiting and diversion are among the biggest threats facing both pharmaceutical brands and patient safety today.

This highly lucrative crime, which is estimated to be worth more than $200bn in annual sales, is being targeted by criminals who are becoming more efficient at subverting supply chain security as they chase illicit profits.

To tackle this threat, companies need to ensure smooth operations on the packaging line, use data to guide strategic decision-making across the supply chain and build stronger brand protection in the marketplace. This requires real-time abilities to discover and mitigate issues.

In this exclusive webinar, Steve Tallant, Systech Senior Director of Product Marketing, will share best practices on how to achieve an intelligent supply chain that can protect your products and patients from increasing levels of risk. All of this founded on making the most of pharmaceutical manufacturer’s investment in serialization compliance.

Steve will be joined in the session by David Yingling, Brand Protection and Product Security at Johnson & Johnson, who will discuss his role in protecting Johnson & Johnson brands from illicit activity and how the company has been working to enhance supply chain security.

Also joining the session will be Dr. Mark Willis of Willis QS Consulting and Author of Counterfeit Pharmaceuticals: Are U.S. Consumers Aware of the Potential Risks?

  • How to gather actionable risk intelligence from operational data.
  • Techniques to strategically identify trends and potential threats in the market.
  • The impact of intelligent and connected packaging.
