Bruce Armon and Karilynn Bayus, Chair and Vice Chair of the Firm’s Health Care Practice, respectively, are quoted in Law360. The pair discuss a recent guide published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in December 2018.

"This type of guidance makes it tougher for health care organizations to plead ignorance about their knowledge of the cybersecurity practices that are available to them," said Karilynn.

According to Bruce, the guide is both a useful starting point and reminder.

"This document is a helpful starting point for organizations to look at their own cybersecurity policies and protections and look at the gaps that need to be addressed," said Bruce. "And it serves as a reminder that at least from the federal government's perspective, they're aware of the cybersecurity risks that health care companies face and are providing them with an opportunity to take these issues seriously."
