Abbott continues to invest in cybersecurity capabilities to protect Abbott operations and data from cyber- attacks.

The BISO is the primary Cyber-point of contact for the assigned division and supports the implementation of the Cybersecurity program. This person will be a cybersecurity subject matter expert dedicated to supporting the division in making risk-informed decisions based on the evolving cyber threat landscape, regulatory requirements and Abbott policy. Similarly, the BISO will provide divisional insight to the Enterprise Cybersecurity organization to make business-informed decisions on enterprise policy and controls.
