Key Privacy and Cybersecurity Developments for Health and Health-Adjacent Companies
Please Join Us in Boston
The privacy and cybersecurity legal landscape is rapidly evolving. For example–
- Recent amendments to the Massachusetts data breach law notification take effect on April 11, 2019;
- The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into operation on January 1, 2020;
- Class action suits under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) are moving forward in the courts; and
- A number of state legislatures and Congress are currently considering new or expanded privacy and cybersecurity legislation.
Companies in health and health-adjacent fields may already be subject to industry-specific laws and regulations (e.g., the HIPAA Privacy Rule and Security Rule, FDA medical device regulations, the FTC Health Breach Notification Rule), in addition to or in lieu of some aspects of otherwise generally applicable data privacy and security legal requirements.
Please join us for an update on key privacy and cybersecurity legal developments, with specific insights for health and health-adjacent companies on how to strategically navigate this rapidly changing legal landscape. We’ll also provide practical takeaways to assist in evaluating business opportunities and technical innovations in light of high-level compliance obligations and legal risk.
