Are you in you in charge of data protection and disaster recovery at your healthcare organization? Are you skeptical of the security measures cloud providers use to try and assuage your fears? You should be, it is impossible to guarantee that a data breach or loss won't happen, no matter how much they spend on a particular solution. That being said, you can mitigate the risks associated with offsite or cloud offerings by properly vetting vendors and taking advantage of additional measures such as data encryption, before so that you are protected from compliance issues in the event of a breach. If a breach does happen, and your data is encrypted, you won't be subject the penalties, fines, and bad publicity that typically comes with a HIPAA breach, because you've taken the appropriate measure to protect your patient healthcare data.
For those of you interested in how hundreds of healthcare organizations across the US are leveraging the cloud and still maintain compliance I encourage you to check out an upcoming webinar being hosted by Evault and Paranet. The web seminar will address the major risks and concerns associated with storing data in the cloud and how to mitigate or address them in your organization.
