Title:  “Best Practices for Cloud Security & Compliance”


The healthcare industry has always been more cautious when it comes to new deployment mechanisms, especially when they involve the public cloud. While one appreciates all of the benefits the cloud offers, their first priority is safeguarding patient private data and records. The transition to cloud is even more challenging by the rules and regulatory fines imposed by HIPAA.


However, this is balanced with the need for expedited, consolidated and always available patient care data, and the easiest way to do this is by leveraging new cloud technologies.  The rapid proliferation of medical and health solutions that consumers can interact with is quickly driving healthcare and medical technology providers into the public cloud, and specifically to new application workloads.


This session will highlight the different challenges experienced when migrating to the cloud, and review some new solutions and proven best practices you can use to develop a strong Cloud Security Posture framework.
