Compliance With Cloud, Hybrid, Multi-Cloud: Making Shared Responsibilities Work

Thursday, April 20 at 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM CT
South Building, Level 4 | S406 B

Improving the patient experience requires protecting patient data with strong privacy, security, and compliance, and avoiding breaches, ransomware and other security incidents that erode patient trust. Achieving compliance in a cloud environment is challenging, compounded by the reality many healthcare organizations face with their use of hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments. This is exacerbated by constantly changing regulations, data protection laws, and privacy & security standards. Further complicating this challenge is the fact that compliance with cloud is a shared responsibility between healthcare organizations and cloud providers, and the line separating responsibilities depends on the type of cloud use, whether Infrastructure, Platform, or Software as a Service. This practical educational session focuses on real concerns, experiences, challenges, strategies, workarounds, and best practices that enable use of cloud computing by healthcare organizations and realization of the associated benefits, while enabling ongoing compliance, even with shared responsibilities, across complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments, and with changing regulations, data protection laws, and privacy & security standards. Join us to hear first-hand from the frontlines of healthcare how to make cloud computing work for healthcare, and how to make shared responsibilities for privacy, security, and compliance work in practice.
