Meditology Establishes Healthcare Cloud Security Center of Excellence
Published On July 8, 2020
July 8, 2020 - ATLANTA, GA - Meditology Services, a top-ranked healthcare information security and privacy consulting firm, has established a new Healthcare Cloud Security Center of Excellence. The new cloud security program includes a specialized team, tailored services, and resources dedicated to helping healthcare organizations manage growing cloud security risk exposures.
“We see a paradigm shift currently underway for the migration of critical business functions in healthcare to cloud-hosted platforms. The ability to assess and secure third-party cloud platforms will soon become the paramount mandate for information security and risk programs,” said Ryan Freeman-Jones, Managing Director at Meditology Services who oversees Meditology’s cloud security program.
“Moving healthcare applications and infrastructure to cloud-hosted platforms does not transfer the risk of breach, regulatory exposures, or downtime of critical clinical systems required for patient care. Moving sensitive information and PHI to third-party cloud-hosted environments often introduces new risks that must be evaluated, tracked, and remedied,” said Freeman-Jones.
Meditology’s Healthcare Cloud Center of Excellence will provide dedicated services and industry leadership for common cloud platforms including Microsoft Office 365, Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google GCP, and other healthcare-specific vendor cloud implementations such as telehealth, business applications, EHRs, and other patient-facing solutions.
Meditology has also launched a dedicated Cloud Security Resource Center that delivers thought leadership content including webinars, podcasts, tools, blogs, and other on-demand resources to help organizations manage cloud security risks.
Meditology provides a range of services to support cloud implementations for healthcare entities including cloud security risk assessments, cloud security strategic planning, penetration testing, cloud vendor risk management, HITRUST and SOC 2 certification for cloud implementations, and cloud security subject matter expertise and staff augmentation support.
