The challenges faced by Biocon was incorporating and aligning with the Labour Law of Malaysia while reflecting the corporate policies with zero compromise in security controls and standards. A Global Security Reference Standard (GSRA) was incorporated by Biocon for aligning the security policies, cyber policies, along with the regulatory and compliance framework of a pharmaceutical organization. This alignment made the adoption of controls easier with a smooth transfer of dependency from individuals to system-driven compliance. This helped the organization improve the process efficiency and thereby brought down the costs incurred from multiple external authority driven audits.
