Security breach, malware and ransomware advice

Health care entities fall under stringent data security and privacy laws and regulations. Effectively managing health care data security breaches is critically important to business survival. Before any breach occurs, our attorneys assist clients in developing HIPAA compliance programs, which include data security breach notification procedures. If a breach occurs, our attorneys help clients to implement their plans and take action in a decisive, responsive manner and in compliance with HIPAA and other breach notification laws.

Clients facing data security breaches rely on us to coordinate notification strategies, including notification to regulatory agencies, credit reporting agencies, the media and consumers. We also work closely with clients to conduct internal data security audits to uncover security weaknesses and to develop policies to prevent future security breaches.
