At The Podium

Invasion of the Data Snatchers

Date: March 27, 2018

Event: Healthcare Headlines Seminar

Venue: National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum

Location: Oklahoma City, OK

While ransomware attacks and breaches of protected health information still pose major threats to the healthcare industry, they are not the only challenges providers face when tasked with protecting data security. In their presentation at McAfee & Taft’s 2018 “Healthcare Headlines: News you can use” seminar, healthcare attorney Patricia Rogers starts the session by reviewing how the cybersecurity landscape has changed over the years. Trial lawyer Anna Imose follows by taking a closer look into the issue of cybersecurity insurance policies and the common coverage pitfalls to avoid, as well as strategies for establishing and maintaining attorney-client privilege during a post-breach investigation.

Intellectual property attorney Zach Oubre rounds out the presentation with a discussion on data breaches caused by electronic health record (EHR) vendors, and how a well-crafted vendor agreement can reduce your financial liability related to the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive information.
