3 Success Factors for Migrating Data Security to the Cloud
The cloud provides new capabilities to develop more flexible offerings that are on par with premises-based versions – but at a lower cost and faster time to market. This, in turn, presents new models for government agencies to consider, either to augment or replace their existing data security infrastructure.
High Assurance Encryption for Healthcare Network Data
As healthcare stakeholders and systems become better connected, the volume of healthcare data created, processed, analyzed and stored is greater than ever. The increased use of HD video – either for collaboration or patient monitoring – is also changing the nature and format of healthcare data.
HIPAA Compliance Checklist
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulates the use and disclosure of certain information held by health plans, health insurers, and medical service providers that engage in many types of transactions. SafeNet Assured Technologies can help address many of the critical challenges of ensuring the security of sensitive data adhering to health information privacy standards.
Identity and Data Protection for Federal Healthcare Organizations
From medical records to insurance forms to prescription services, the healthcare industry has become a networked environment— allowing patient information to be shared and managed by a variety of parties and from a number of endpoints, each with their own level of security for protecting that information.
Securing Electronic Health Records in Storage
While HITECH provides ample incentives for healthcare organizations to employ EHR systems, it also builds on HIPAA to provide more stringent security and privacy rules. Therefore, healthcare organizations that leverage EHR systems must also ensure regulated information is consistently and effectively safeguarded—and do so for as long as that data must be retained, which can be decades in many cases. This paper reveals a key vulnerability that is prevalent in many organizations that have adopted EHR: regulated data held in digital storage systems. The paper also reveals how solutions offered by SafeNet Assured Technologies can help secure this critical area in the healthcare organization’s infrastructure.
CJIS Data-in-Transit Encryption Standards
For US law enforcement agencies, complying with the Criminal Justice Information Services Security Policy (CJIS-SP) is an imperative requirement. However, it’s also critical to ensure that the security mechanisms employed don’t in any way impede staff in fulfilling the agencies’ chief charter: fighting crime. This paper examines data-in-transit encryption, which is an important component of CJIS-SP requirements. It offers a number of insights into the approaches that can help organizations address data-in-transit encryption policies most efficiently and effectively—while ensuring that investigators and other users always get reliable, timely access to the information they need to do their jobs.
FedRAMP ECSB Compliance Checklist
The Cloud First initiative is now a reality—civilian and defense agencies are being asked to default to cloud-based solutions when possible. In order to facilitate the transition to the cloud, the Federal Government has implemented the government-wide Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) to provide a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
