The Unified Protection Strategy

The Unified Protection Strategy includes Medidata’s Information Security, Data Privacy, and Quality functions. Together, these functions ensure that Medidata has created a secure, stable, and scalable cloud platform, robust data governance processes, and an inspection-ready quality management system — which, when you put all together, are critical enablers to success in clinical trial execution.
