With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility: The Challenge of Maintaining Data Security in the Cloud

This presentation is a recording of a webinar given on 10/6/2020 by Clearwater’s Chief Risk Officer and Head of Consulting Services, Jon Moore.


When deployed properly, the cloud can be a powerful ally for a healthcare organization. Cloud services offer many benefits, the primary one being reduced cost. As a result, the migration of healthcare organizations’ IT systems to the cloud continues to accelerate. Unfortunately, healthcare IT security has struggled to keep pace with this trend, and recent studies have found millions of patient records located in the cloud exposed to the public. Many of these records have been indexed by search engines like Google making them available to even the least sophisticated hacker.

During this webinar, Clearwater Chief Risk Officer and Head of Consulting Services Jon Moore will review recent examples of cloud security failures and discuss critical takeaways that organizations should note to avoid similar missteps.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why healthcare organizations’ move to the cloud is accelerating
  • Seven ways cloud security can go sideways resulting in a breach and HIPAA violation
  • Best practices to help your organization reduce risk and avoid a HIPAA violation in the cloud
