In a Law360 article, a cross-practice team discussed the implications of the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Cyber-Fraud Initiative on the health care industry. The authors offer an overview of the initiative and steps companies can take now to mitigate their risk. 

Under the initiative, the DOJ's Civil Division's Commercial Litigation Branch plans to utilize the False Claims Act to pursue government contractors and grant recipients for misrepresenting their cybersecurity practices or falling short of the government's cybersecurity standards. 

The article was authored by health care partners Deborah Gersh (Chicago) and Christine Moundas (New York), litigation & enforcement partner Andrew O’Connor (Boston) and health care associate Jamie Darch (Chicago).
