Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

ClearDATA Networks, Inc., the leading healthcare cloud computing platform and information security service provider, today announced that its Chief Privacy Officer and SVP of Professional Services, Chris Bowen, MBA, CIPP/US, CIPP/IT, will be a featured speaker for the Radiology Business Management Association (RBM) Fall Educational Conference held September 8-11, 2013 at the Seaport Boston Hotel and World Trade Center in Boston, MA. Mr. Bowen is also a ClearDATA Founder.

Mr. Bowens session titled, HIPAA Compliance for Radiologists in a HITECH World, will address HIPAA changes required by the HITECH Final Rule with specific focus on appropriate policies and best practices for mobile devices, security considerations for encryption, and Security Risk Assessments.

Increased regulatory requirements from the Omnibus Rule bring significant security and compliance challenges to hospitals and healthcare organizations of all sizes, says Mr. Bowen. Additionally, the proliferation of mobile devices within healthcare introduces significant security risks for ePHI and added management complexities. Organizations must implement precise technologies, architecture, and infrastructure coupled with cohesive policies and procedures to securely account for mobile devices, different systems, and applications that can interface with patient information.

Armor for Android Releases Ensuring Privacy in a World of Cloud Technology

(PRWEB) March 03, 2014

Cloud computing may seem like a shiny new technology but the concept has been around since the early days of computers. Using modern cloud services we can access our data from anywhere in the world from any internet capable machine. Since cloud data is stored on remote servers we no longer have to worry about dropping a device in water and washing away all of our data in one heart wrenching moment. At last, our technological savior has arrived! But wait, does this divine technology come at a price?

Neither the cloud’s advanced age nor its potential benefits provide comfort with regard to privacy. It feels quite natural when asked to hand over one’s entire digital life, including all one’s confidential information, to respond with an audible, “You’re out of your bleeping mind!” We certainly wouldn’t ask a stranger to hold a briefcase filled with our life’s savings, would we? Oh wait, we do ask strangers to hold our life savings, and in some cases they’ve done a very poor job of it. Perhaps banks and stock brokers are partly to blame for our distrust of the cloud. Or perhaps the natural reaction to any significant innovation is to resist.

Banks and Cloud service share a common abstract concept. Both are a single repository of collective wealth; in the case of banks the wealth is money and valuables, and for cloud services it is sensitive personal information. I have no trouble believing that the first banks were met with much the same skepticism as cloud services. I imagine old men laughing at the fools who pile their wealth high and make theft more alluring to criminals.
