CloudeAssurance and Data Privacy Network to Present “Adopting the Cloud Safely and Securely” Webinar

Comprehensive webinar will explore how to safely and securely adopt the cloud to maximize its benefits for business.

Tempe, AZ, November 05, 2013 — Black Dog Promotions is proud to announce a dynamic new webinar that will be produced jointly with CloudeAssurance and Data Privacy Network. With the explosion of the “cloud” recently, it is increasingly being embraced by businesses worldwide. In taking it to the next level–security of data, files and information need to be of the utmost importance. Founder Taiye Lambo and Lead Cloud Security Analyst Jordan Flynn of CloudeAssurance and Co-Founder of Data Privacy Network, Phil Alexander will conduct this vitally important webinar on Wednesday, November 20th, 11:00 a.m. EST/8:00 a.m. PST.

“What we’re going to focus on are the real world benefits of the cloud,” said Alexander. “There are definite benefits. You have worldwide collaboration, rapid deployment and reduced cost. It’s much easier to go through an established cloud service provider than to try and create a cloud environment in your own network.” There are also risks that are involved with using a cloud environment. “We will ask the attendee to consider several things,” noted Alexander. Questions to consider will be: 1) What level of security is right for your company? 2) What’s the nature of your data? 3) How sensitive is that data? 4) Is data co-mingled? “If it’s just non-sensitive, fully-disclosed data, security is less of an issue.” The webinar will utilize three state-of-the-industry experts to help walk business owners and IT experts through the myriad of security exposure scenarios and give valuable strategies and solution ideas to help organizations protect their data. An attendee Q&A session will also take place towards the end of the webinar.

“We’ll be exchanging a lot of ideas. The main thing we’ll be talking about are the benefits of adopting the cloud for business and then the potential security issues of putting your information in the cloud,” stated Lambo. There are also some other important issues that businesses will be made aware of and how best to handle various security issues. “We’ll be sharing our high level research and explaining our Top 10 cloud service provider independent benchmark study information,” Lambo said. Flynn added, “This webinar focuses on how to enable the benefits of the cloud securely.” The webinar is free of charge and attendees can sign up here https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/9459/91376.

The collaboration between CloudeAssurance and Data Privacy Network will continue beyond their initial webinar, too. “We’re so like-minded. It’s one of those things that you can’t have privacy without security,” said Lambo. “And we share the same philosophy.” The ultimate goal is for the two companies together to increase awareness of online security while conducting webinars and speaking engagements designed to give businesses valuable knowledge and strategies to protect their business information.

Woburn, MA, October 31, 2013 – AURA (www.auraportal.com), a global provider of Business Process Management (BPM) software, has announced the creation and launch of its sound Cloud Computing structure.

After several years of development and fine tuning, Cloud Computing is rapidly becoming the latest and unstoppable trend for the use of software applications, now that it is clear that the questions about access, security and reliability have been overcome.

Whatever the level of service, the user does not have to invest in hardware or software, AuraPortal handles all the necessary investments.

eGestalt’s New HI-SCAN Tool Paves Way for HIPAA Security and Compliance Automation on the Quick

eGestalt Technologies, announced HI-SCAN, a quick and inexpensive way for healthcare service providers to quickly identify and manage high-risk medical practices and business associates that are short on fulfilling HIPAA/HITECH compliance requirements.

Santa Clara, CA (USA), Friday – November 11, 2011 — eGestalt Technologies ( http://www.eGestalt.com ), a leading provider of cloud-based, SaaS-delivered, security and IT governance, risk management and compliance solutions for SMBs to enterprises, announced HI-SCAN, a quick and inexpensive way for healthcare service providers to quickly identify and manage high-risk medical practices and business associates that are short on fulfilling HIPAA/HITECH compliance requirements.The HI-SCAN tool can be used by both medical providers and theirmany business associates – contractors, hazardous waste collectors, blood work laboratories, et. al. -that serve covered entities on a daily basis.

Says eGestalt President Anupam Sahai, “There are some 3 million medical providers and business associates who can use HI-SCAN to snap a valuable audit/assessment picture; to understand high-risk problem areas that need immediate attention in order to comply with HIPAA/HITECH and avoid being sacked by fines.”

HI-SCAN is a low-cost self-assessment tool that can be added on to the base SecureGRC solution which can be used to e-mail a short questionnaire of 20+ critical requirements to flag areas of non-compliance. It helps medical practices gain control and improve more than 200+ HIPAA/HITECH compliance points, before they are flagged as serious problems.

Based on its results, users can quickly identify and prioritize the problem areas that need to be escalated. Given that medium to large covered entities deal with about 100+ BAs in the course of running their business, HI-SCAN is a quick solution for generating a quick audit/assessment, alerting both the CE and BA of problem areas in fulfilling their mandatory HIPAA compliance requirements and focus on the high-risk associates and consultants who need immediate attention.

“A critical aspect of doing business within the Healthcare community, and as required by HIPAA/HITECH, is anyone who has access to PHI, is bound by the same regulations as the customers they serve,” added Sahai. “And the penalties for non-compliance are getting stiffer. It is no longer a paltry $100 as the fines have been raised to a maximum of $50,000.And if it is proven that you are willfully neglectful, the fines can increase from $25,000 to $1.5 million with criminal penalties.”

Healthcare data breaches have affected nearly 11.6 million individuals, out of which 6 million records were irresponsibly handled by BAs. The average number of individuals per breach through the BA was 102,678. [Source: HHS]. http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/administrative/breachnotificationrule/postedbreaches.html

The Federal government has set aside $20 billion for upgrading the healthcare IT infrastructure by the year 2014 – spelling a huge upside for the channel. Service providers can pursue federal ‘meaningful use’ dollars to the tune of $40,000 per qualified physician practice. SecureGRC generates the necessary reports for proving compliance.

eGestalt’s channel strategy involves the certification of Managed Compliance Providers (MCPs), a channel program based around a proprietary “cookbook” that serves as an introduction and training guide for partners just getting started with delivering managed compliance services.
