Melissa L. Jampol, a Member of the Firm, and Elena M. Quattrone, an Associate, in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s New York office, authored an article in Health Data Management, titled “Why Federal Worry Over Cyberattacks Puts Pressure on Providers.”

Following is an excerpt:
