Marcy Wilder

Clients in the healthcare sector and other industries are increasingly concerned about privacy and cybersecurity issues, data breach preparedness, and response. With her in-house government experience, Marcy Wilder is called upon by clients to manage large, complex, and high-profile cyberattacks and privacy investigations. She provides clients with informed, clear, and business-focused privacy and security compliance counseling and risk management.

Previously, Marcy served as deputy general counsel of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), where she led the legal team in drafting HIPAA privacy and security regulations. She is known for her cutting-edge data protection work in digital health and wearable technology.

As a director of Hogan Lovells' Global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice, Marcy has helped manage hundreds of security incidents and successfully defended clients in numerous privacy-related federal and state investigations, including by the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and state attorneys general. She is routinely called upon to advise on proposed regulatory and legislative changes that will impact the electronic health environment. Marcy has helped plan and execute global compliance programs and supervised privacy assessments and information security policy audits for leading global health, education, and technology enterprises.

Marcy was named to the The National Law Journal's "Regulatory & Compliance Trailblazers," and is consistently ranked as a top-tier privacy lawyer by both Chambers USA and The Legal 500. In addition to serving on the board of directors for the national eHealth Initiative, Marcy has been a featured speaker at conferences and seminars across the country, and lectures frequently on data privacy and cybersecurity, data analytics, digital health, cross-border data transfers, and privacy issues related to medical and genomic research.

"She has done much of the cutting-edge work on wearable technologies and sensors."
