On January 3, Bill Berglund spoke to Law360 on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) new four-volume health care cybersecurity guide. Although the standards proposed in the guidance are voluntary, they are expected to set a "reasonable security" standard that may ignite litigation as well as more formal policy.

"One interesting feature of this HHS publication is that it doesn't attempt to rewrite existing standards or create new ones, but builds on existing effective principles and practices for which there is a consensus within the health care industry," Bill said. "This should help increase the likelihood that organizations will adopt the principles in the report."
