Healthcare and Life Sciences

Personal health information is arguably the most sensitive and highly valued data in the digital world. The healthcare industry is constantly facing cyber threats from a variety of different vectors and actors, both domestic and international. Coupled with the fact that it is a meticulously regulated industry under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), it becomes clear that covered entities and their business associates need to approach cybersecurity and data privacy with the seriousness it commands.

XPAN Law’s skilled team of experienced attorneys are well-versed in the complexities of the HIPAA Security Rule, the HIPAA Privacy Rule, and the HITECH Act. We understand how these regulations intersect and interact with other cybersecurity and data privacy laws and regulations. XPAN Law cross maps these regulations and our clients’ contractual obligations to provide them with a balanced multidisciplinary approach to their data privacy and cybersecurity program.

XPAN Law understands the intersecting language of law and applications of technology while taking into account the unique organizational blueprint of the companies we represent. We put our clients in the best strategic position to protect PHI and always strive to do so in a cost-effective manner.
