This CLE course will guide healthcare counsel on managing, preserving and protecting the security of healthcare data. The panel will examine the new Health Sector Coordinating Council (HSCC) guidance on cybersecurity protections and discuss managing and responding to cyber attacks and data breaches. The panel will offer best practices for regulatory compliance and reducing liability risk.


In 2017, breaches cost the healthcare industry more than $6 billion and the cost climbed in 2018. Working with HHS, the FDA and other governmental agencies, the HSCC recently released two documents that provide best practices and guidance on improved cybersecurity protections and data breach response.

Healthcare entities must be prepared to navigate and respond to data breaches appropriately. In an environment in which the use of mobile and connected devices is commonplace, it is critical for holders of healthcare information and their counsel to have protections in place to safeguard and manage the data.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines the new HSCC guidance and discusses risk management strategies. The panel will also address responding effectively to cybersecurity attacks and data breaches. The panel will discuss strategies to comply with existing regulatory obligations and reduce liability for data breaches.
