To better control healthcare’s mounting cost pressures, more and more, healthcare vendors are turning to the cloud to leverage efficiencies and to keep expenses in check. As a result, healthcare organizations often have no choice but to do the same; they’re being pushed by vendor partners.

This means that knowingly or unknowingly, healthcare organizations are moving more patient health information to cloud infrastructures.

As Intermountain Healthcare CISO Karl West will address, whether voluntarily or not, moving healthcare data to the cloud requires healthcare organizations to address four areas to bolster cybersecurity:

  • Identify where your data resides.
  • Understand appropriate controls to manage cloud data.
  • Strategies to manage risk: transfer, mitigate, accept or avoid?
  • Strategies to protect data.
