PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - December 5 - 7, 2016
John Houston is the Vice President of privacy and security and Associate counsel for UPMC, a $12 billion integrated healthcare delivery system headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pa. Among his many duties, John plays a key oversight role in the acquisition, licensing, and use of technology.
UPMC spends millions on technology. These days, most acquisitions are "cloud-based deals", with far fewer being made for on premise software, when compared to the past. Needless to say, when it comes to securing data in the cloud, UPMC has a lot at stake.
In this session, John will discuss the market forces driving UPMC to the cloud. More importantly, he'll provide an overview of UPMC's cloud acquisition process, which he developed to make sure remote IT services are reliable and effectively delivered and that the data is appropriately safeguarded.
This information will benefit all providers, large and small.
