*This is the second of a two part webinar. Separate registration is required.

As identity theft and malicious attacks against clinical providers increase, more and more health care data is stored in the digital cloud. The health care industry is required to take special precautions when licensing cloud-related technologies. This two-part webinar presentation (Part 1 - July 13; Part 2 - July 27) will provide a focused, actionable summary of current FTC, OCR and other governmental enforcement actions regarding data privacy and security in the cloud.

The presenters will detail the elements of government claims and final opinions and how they affect cloud vendors and their clinical customers. They will also explain how federal agencies, through the investigation process, generate new standards for data privacy and security for cloud vendors, their subcontractors and clinical providers. Included in the presentation will be a case study that illustrates regulatory matters.

Attendees will receive a tool kit that provides current regulatory compliance guidance and serves as a playbook for operations, contract negotiations and drafting policies concerning health care data privacy and security regimes for the cloud environment.
