Our clients’ health care data is highly sought after by criminals who have access to the technology necessary to steal this valuable data. Polsinelli attorneys partner with clients to proactively respond to this threat by identifying threats and vulnerabilities, and implementing action plans to address those issues before a breach occurs.  

We regularly assist clients with developing, implementing, and updating their privacy and security compliance programs, including response plans. We advise on privacy and security policies and procedures, notice of privacy practices and business associate arrangements. Clients turn to us for other day-to-day issues involving security, including, transmitting health information via email and text message in a compliant manner, encryption issues and access control and management issues.  

We advise clients on conducting and documenting their security risk analysis and risk management plans in a manner that facilitates OCR’s ability to understand the steps the organization has taken to achieve compliance. We also assist clients in cyber-attack avoidance (e.g., understanding and protecting against malware, ransomware, etc.).
