HIPAA Hardening for Microsoft Azure Cloud Hosting

HIPAA and the HITECH Act applies to most doctors’ offices, hospitals, health insurance companies, and other companies that may have access to patient information (called Protected Health Information, or PHI). If you use a cloud-based service such as Microsoft Azure, Microsoft must agree in a written agreement to adhere to certain security and privacy compliance provisions set out in HIPAA and the HITECH Act.

While Microsoft Azure includes features to help enable customers’ privacy and security compliance, customers are responsible for ensuring their particular use of Azure complies with HIPAA, the HITECH Act, and other applicable state laws and regulations.

Join our webinar to learn how to assist organizations interested in hardening Azure services and to understand the relevant capabilities of Microsoft Azure. The intended audience for this session includes privacy officers, security officers, compliance officers, and Business Associates responsible for HIPAA and HITECH Act implementation and compliance.
