Is Cloud Computing Protecting Your Patient Data
Cloud Computing What Is It?
Cloud Computing is the storage and accessing of data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. Remote servers host, manage, and process your data and information.
Protecting Patient Data In The Cloud
Cloud computing is fairly new to healthcare and, as such, confusion and a few myths surround the technology. The Cloud provides advantages as compared to in-house systems: physical and software security, authentication for access control, and advanced encryption. Continuous monitoring is an added benefit.
There are a host of cybersecurity protections currently being developed to protect data in the Cloud. Experts strongly recommend the implementation of constantly updated risk management frameworks into their Cloud databases.
Who’s responsible for protecting patient data in the cloud
Indeed, the cloud offers a lineup of advantages that on-premise solutions sometimes do not: physical and software security, access control for authentication, regulatory compliance, advanced encryption, high availability and data center redundancy, continuous monitoring, as well as multi-tenant segmentation.
Cybersecurity risk management frameworks are constantly evolving and therefore constant upgrading is necessary. Investing in new applications and cybersecurity services insure the protection of your data and privacy.
