December 12, 2019
Tom Zalewski is quoted in an article, "Careful Care: Health Care Companies Must Be Aware of Legal Risks That Come with New Technology," published by ROI-NJ. The article sheds light on the potential risks health care organizations face when utilizing online communication tools and digitizing data. "One thing a lot of life science companies are very concerned about is the threat of data breaches, as many have followed the trend of digitizing their data," Zalewski told ROI-NJ. "They know they need to lock it down and keep it secure, but they have to be prepared for the legal framework surrounding what happens when there is a data breach." As noted in the article, a complex network of rules exists for reporting data breaches, and these rules become increasingly complex for the life sciences sector due to its international reach. "...[I]t's only going to become more important," Zalewski added.
