Hackers are no longer aiming for your wallet through banking data breaches; they are going after your health by accessing medical records and medical devices, which has proven to be more profitable for them and allows them to access a wealth of different schemes including blackmail, murder for hire, and other serious crimes. While it may seem like a script from your favorite television show, the terrifying truth is that it is real.

If you are an attorney representing medical device manufacturers, healthcare providers, or patients, don’t miss out on this eye-opening program.
