Riveles Wahab partner Kaiser Wahab presented on the regulatory framework governing health and government data privacy at Cloud Computing East 2014. Cloud Computing East is an annual conference presented by the Cloud Computing Association (CCA) and the Distributed Computing Industry Association (DCIA). The conference offered two different tracks for attendees to explore the issues related to hosting data in the cloud: one focused on government data and other on health data. Attendees included hospitals, physicians groups, health plans, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, universities, government contractors, public utilities, and federal, state, and local government agencies. Kaiser’s presentation included breakdowns of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and E-Government Act of 2002, how they relate to cloud computing, and best practices for negotiating cloud service contracts.
