Re: Compliance and the cloud
Joe Stanganelli, I used to do that but stopped. I forgot about the option. Thanks for the tip. I will definitely start doing that again.

Re: Compliance and the cloud
This is exactly why whenever doctor's offices ask me to sign stuff to give them consent to put my health data on their "system," I decline.  They always seem surprised for me to place this roadblock in their smooth bureaucratic highway.  I smile, tell them I work in data privacy, reaffirm my "no thank you," and the discussion ends.

Re: Compliance and the cloud
ms.akkineni I agree, Healthcare, Legal and other industries that follow strict regulations regarding release of customer data would need to explore the feasiblility of using Cloud Services. It is great solution for any business but healthcare companies need to hire top notch security professionals to ensure that security risks and minimized. Here is a great article on risks on  usage of cloud services in the healthcare industry.

Re: Compliance and the cloud
@Joe, that's great.  Resilient Systems has the right vision.  I would imagine they are benefiting from a growing market.

Thanks!

Re: Compliance and the cloud
@DHagar: I believe that Resilient Systems (Bruce Schneier's company) already does something like this with incident response / breach notification compliance.

Re: Compliance and the cloud
@Joe:

When it comes to Healthcare Personal Health Information (PHI) is a huge challenge when you think about cloud. There are many things that require to pass State audit from time to time. The location of data is very critical.

Any time for anything that has to deal with regulatory / complaince the challenge is only multiple times more.

Re: Compliance and the cloud
Joe, excellent points.  You are absolutely correct.  The biotech startups face the same level of regulations as a mature pharamaceutical company, without the resources.

Having pre-configured compliance services for identified major industries would go a long way to supporting startups and take the burden off the cost of compliance.


Note:  Actually you could build a model from that which would support companies when new regulations are applied or made more stringent - i.e., carbon emissions, etc.

Re: Compliance and the cloud
Also worth noting: We are seeing an enormous boom in biotech startups over the past few years -- and small companies have more difficulty with extensive regulatory compliance than large companies do.  While data privacy and data protection are exceedingly compelling needs, I worry where these compliance issues interfere with the ability to innovate with new technology.

Re: Compliance and the cloud
Joe, true to the points of full compliance.  There may be overall security built into the "system", but then I believe vertical industry providers (specific to industry/country), may build in regulatory compliance capabilities where the markets are large enough and provide a template for standards to be met. 

Companies will still have the responsibility to ensure their systems, and vendor systems, comply, so they may need to build a final last-mile specific compliance.

Re: Compliance and the cloud
@Joe, it is because of the points that you make that I believe vertical industry cloud providers will recognize the weaknesses in the healthcare systems and will build additional layers for compliance.  Clearly the healthcare industry is not prepared to provide the required robust security it needs so I think again the big players going after the healthcare industry, and linkages with EHR's, will provide a stronger capability that will be attractive to the industry.

Healthcare is increasingly relying on outsourcing in recognition of the gaps and the investments and inhouse knowledge required to meet the requirements you point out.
