HIPAA, Data Privacy and Cybersecurity

The attorneys at CCLB have assisted healthcare providers of all types and sizes in connection with HIPAA, data privacy, and cybersecurity matters.  We have assisted clients in HIPAA breaches ranging in size from one patient to several hundred thousand patients, and everywhere in between.

Although HIPAA has existed for over twenty years, the last five years have seen a drastic increase in cybersecurity incidents within the healthcare industry and, as a result, federal and state regulators have drastically increased their enforcement initiatives related to HIPAA enforcement.

The attorneys at CCLB have assisted healthcare providers of all types and sizes across the United States in connection with breach response, breach notification, investigations by HHS-OCR and state regulators, as well as defending clients in civil litigation resulting from cybersecurity breaches.  

How we can help

  • Assist healthcare providers in responding to HIPAA breaches and/or cybersecurity incidents, including hacking and ransomware.
  • Defend providers in connection with investigations by HHS-OCR and state regulators.
  • Defend providers in connection with civil lawsuits brought by patients as a result of HIPAA breaches.
  • Assist both covered entities and business associates with developing and implementing HIPAA-compliant policies and procedures.
