“Tune Up” Your Cybersecurity Program: A Perspective on Why Now

September 24, 2020

On the heels of recent significant Office for Civil Rights (OCR) breach settlements—one related to the Protected Health Information of 6 million individuals and an allegation related to systemic noncompliance with HIPAA rules—Foley Partner Jennifer Rathburn talks with Brian Resler a Vice President for Engagement for Stroz Friedberg, an Aon company, to discuss practical and approachable steps you need to take to tweak your cybersecurity program to be better prepared for any potential attacks.

Jennifer Rathburn focuses her practice on helping clients prepare for and respond to data breaches, as well as complying with HIPAA, 42 CFR Part 2, GDPR, GLBA, FERPA, and other federal and state privacy laws. She is also co-founder of the Midwest Cyber Security Alliance, a nonprofit, nonpartisan collaboration of stakeholders focused on promoting awareness of hot cybersecurity and privacy issues as well as advocating for more effective solutions.

Brian Resler manages teams assisting clients in responding to data breach and cybersecurity incidents, developing and implementing information security programs, and conducting digital forensics for litigation. Prior to Stroz Friedberg, Brian spent about 25 years as a State and Federal Prosecutor, most recently as a litigation supervisor for the U.S. Department of Justice Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, supervising and advising on cyber and intellectual property prosecutions around the country.
