Kirk Nahra Article Is Highlighted in Health Care Newsletter

FierceHealthPayer
January 27, 2014

An article written by Kirk J. Nahra, chair of Wiley Rein’s Privacy Practice, was spotlighted in a January 24 item on FierceHealthPayer.com, a daily newsletter about the health care industry.  Mr. Nahra’s article, “What You Should Be Watching for in 2014,” was published in the firm’s monthly newsletter, Privacy In FocusĀ®, and an expanded version of the article was also published in the January 13, 2014 edition of Bloomberg BNA’s Privacy and Security Law Report.

Noting that Mr. Nahra’s article addresses the business implications of cybersecurity issues in the news, including Edward Snowden’s highly publicized leaks, FierceHealthPayer reports that Mr. Nahra is counseling clients to brace for more government enforcement because of “ongoing security breaches, increased nervousness about privacy practices and the expansion (and confusion) surrounding the ‘big data’ concept.”

Mr. Nahra’s article can be read here.
