    eAlert - You're Not Immune: Hackers Target Health Care Providers of All Shapes & Sizes

    For health care providers, exposure to cyberattacks is becoming a stark reality. Findings in a recently released Health Care Cyberthreat Report by cybersecurity leaders confirmed the health care industry's vulnerabilities for cyberattacks. The Report attributed such vulnerabilities to a lack of progressive cybersecurity strategies and controls and the increasing amount of electronic protected health information (ePHI) being exchanged over the Internet.

    Just days prior to the Report's release, The Wall Street Journal reported that a national cybersecurity firm discovered information from providers on a popular website hackers use to post data, 4shared.com. The data included PHI and information that could be used to access provider networks. A search by The Wall Street Journal on 4shared.com found compromising information from three New York nursing homes, which reflects how cyberattacks can have compounding effects when information is disseminated beyond the hackers.

    eAlert - Supreme Court Rules that a Non-Competitor has Standing to Assert False Advertising Claims

    On March 25, the U.S. Supreme Court held that a company has standing to assert a false advertising claim against a non-competitor under the federal Lanham Act if it can "show economic or reputational injury flowing directly from the deception wrought by the defendant's advertising." In determining whether an interest is within a "zone of interest," a plaintiff "must allege an injury to a commercial interest in reputation or sales." The court noted that such occurs when "deception of consumers causes them to withhold trade from the plaintiff" (Lexmark Int'l, Inc. v. Static Control Components, Inc., U.S., No. 12-873, 3/25/14). In doing so, the court closed a significant split among various circuit courts by declining to adopt any of the existing alternate approaches.
