How to Secure Cloud Workloads in Healthcare.
“The healthcare industry has always been more cautious when it comes to new deployment mechanisms, especially when they involve the cloud. While one appreciates all of the benefits the cloud offers, their first priority is safeguarding patient private data and records. 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 the cloud. What compounds this and makes the transition more challenging is the rules and regulatory fines that are imposed by HIPAA – in some cases, amounting to over $1Million per incident. This leaves healthcare organizations and medical technologist in a quandary. The secret is to evolve the security approach, and better yet, automate the security protocol to ensure patient protection, application security, and compliance.” Read the solution brief below from Check Point, one of our partners companies.
