  • AWS Best Practices for Healthcare and Life Sciences Compliance hosted by Mission

    AWS Best Practices for Healthcare and Life Sciences Compliance Presented by Glenn Grant, President, US East at Mission Introducing the cloud to an already complicated regulatory landscape can make even the most experienced technology leader apprehensive. Whether migrating on-prem apps to the cloud or building cloud-native apps from the ground up, the Amazon Web Services’ volume of tools can be overwhelming, and even more so in the context of dealing with security and compliance concerns. During this Meetup, we will break down the seemingly insurmountable amount of challenges, allowing you to quickly see how leveraging AWS can actually simplify and improve IT operations. This is crucial in the healthcare and life science space, where the ability to meet and maintain compliance requirements is essential to supporting workloads containing sensitive PHI. • The relationship between HITRUST and HIPAA • The AWS Shared Responsibility Model for Security Measures • AWS BAA and understanding HIPAA eligible services on AWS • Innovating more quickly and delivering better and faster outcomes for patients • Innovating at scale while managing security compliance requirements • Meeting and maintaining essential compliance requirements

    Thank you to TEKsystems who have arranged this meetup, including location, food/drink, and presentations. https://www.teksystems.com/ Location: One Federal St., Suite #2104, Boston, MA 02110 Directions: https://preview.tinyurl.com/y8x3b3g2 Presentations: * Cloud Intrusion Detection and Threat Hunting With Open Source Tools - presented by Security Engineer, Craig Chamberlain Abstract: By popular request, this is a sequel to a 2017 talk entitled “Engineering Challenges Doing Intrusion Detection in the Cloud” about the experience of doing intrusion detection at scale at one of the ten largest AWS environments at the time. One of the major lessons learned during this time is that in the public cloud, where direct network instrumentation is unavailable, doing behavioral detection with endpoint data is often more effective and more efficient. This talk presents a practical demonstration, including a demo, of behavioral intrusion detection, threat hunting and security analytics using free and open source tools. The talk received overwhelmingly positive feedback at the New England community day; one chief security officer called it the most practical talk he had seen. ------------------------- As usual, we will meet and socialize from 6:30-7pm, with presentations to follow.
