The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is an addition to the Privacy Act of 1974. It protects patients from having information about their health and medical history shared without their willing consent by putting specific guidelines in place regarding what information specific individuals and entities can access and disclose, as well as when and how it must be done.
You may be a victim of a HIPAA violation if any of the following are true:
- Your private health information reaches your employer.
- Someone is using your private health information to blackmail you or cause you harm.
- Your health information was not properly disposed of, causing it to fall into the wrong hands.
- Someone shared your private health information online or on social media.
Sharing personal and private medical information about a person, whether deliberately or by accident, is a serious crime with serious consequences. You should report any and all violations immediately, for your own safety, privacy, and well-being.
The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) is intended to protect individuals’ cybersecurity by prohibiting espionage, digital trespassing, and other malicious methods of computer-based fraud. Someone can be penalized under the CFAA if they intentionally access a computer without proper permission and steal protected information or damage the device. If you believe someone has hacked into your computer and used your personal or private information for their own personal gain, you can take civil and/or criminal legal action against them.
Whether you are a victim of a HIPAA or CFAA violation, time is of the essence. Call (251) 202-3374 immediately to schedule your first meeting with Attorney Elizabeth A. Citrin today.
