Item 1C. Cybersecurity.

Item 1C. Cybersecurity
ITEM 1C. CYBERSECURITY In the ordinary course of our business, we collect, use, store, and transmit digitally large amounts of confidential, sensitive, proprietary, personal, and health-related information. The secure maintenance of this information and our information technology systems is important to our operations and business strategy. To this end, we have implemented processes designed to assess, identify, and manage risks from potential unauthorized occurrences on or through our information technology systems that may result in adverse effects on the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of these systems and the data residing therein. These processes are managed and monitored by a third-party information technology team, which reports to our Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Administration, and includes mechanisms, controls, technologies, systems, and other processes designed to prevent or mitigate data loss, theft, misuse, or other security incidents or vulnerabilities affecting the data while also maintaining a stable information technology environment. For example, we conduct penetration and vulnerability testing, data recovery testing, security audits, and ongoing risk assessments, including due diligence on and audits of our key technology vendors, contract research organizations, and other contractors and suppliers. We have an incident response plan designed to mitigate and remediate identified cybersecurity incidents and escalate certain incidents as appropriate to management and the Audit Committee. We also conduct periodic employee trainings on cyber and information security, among other topics. As needed, we consult with outside advisors and experts to assist with assessing, identifying, and managing cybersecurity risks in order to anticipate future threats and trends, and their impact on the Company’s risk environment. Our Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Administration, who reports directly to our interim Chief Executive Officer, is responsible for overseeing the assessment and management of cybersecurity risks. We consider cybersecurity, along with other significant risks that we face, within our overall enterprise risk management framework. In the last fiscal year, we have no identified risks from known cybersecurity threats, including as a result of any prior cybersecurity incidents, that have materially affected us, bu t we face certain ongoing cybersecurity risks threats that, if realized, are reasonably likely to materially affect us. Additional information on cybersecurity risks we face is discussed in Part I, Item 1A , “Risk Factors,” under the heading “Data breaches an d cyber-attacks can compromise our intellectual property or other sensitive information and cause significant damage to our business.” The Board of Directors, as a whole and at the committee level, has oversight for the most significant risks facing us and for our processes to identify, prioritize, assess, manage, and mitigate those risks. The Audit Committee, which is comprised solely of independent directors, has been designated by our Board of Directors to oversee cybersecurity risks. The Audit Committee receives, at a minimum, quarterly updates on cybersecurity and information technology matters and related risk exposures from our Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Administration as well as other members of the senior leadership team, including, if necessary, the Chief Financial Officer. The Board also receives updates from management and the Audit Committee on cybersecurity risks on at least an annual basis.
