Logicworks to Present on HIPAA Compliant Hosting on Amazon Web Services at re:Invent 2014

Logicworks, a Platinum Sponsor at re:Invent 2014, Will Discuss HIPAA Compliance Best Practices on AWS and Present a Use Case Featuring Orion Health at a Break Out Session During the Conference

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2014) - Logicworks, a global leader in cloud computing and managed hosting, today announced that during re:Invent 2014, Jason McKay, VP of Engineering at Logicworks, will deliver a presentation on how to effectively architect HIPAA Compliance on Amazon Web Services.

The presentation brings together the interests of engineering, compliance, and security experts, and will explore how to align your AWS workloads to the controls in the HIPAA Security Rule. Attendees will hear directly from customers who process and store Protected Health Information (PHI) on AWS, and learn how to satisfy compliance requirements while maintaining agility.

"As healthcare organizations are increasingly moving towards the cloud, balancing new technologies and maintaining compliance and security can be a challenge," says Kenneth Ziegler, CEO of Logicworks. "Logicworks combined our expertise developing compliant, complex solutions on AWS with our long track record working within the healthcare industry to help our clients take full advantage of the cloud while fully satisfying HIPAA compliance requirements." 

This session helps security and compliance experts find out what is technically possible on AWS and learn how implementing the Technical Safeguards in the HIPAA Security Rule can be simple and familiar. The discussion will walk through the Technical Safeguards of the Security Rule and map them to AWS features and design choices to help developers, operations teams, and engineers speak the language of their security and compliance peers.

As an Advanced Consulting Partner and Reseller in the AWS Partner Network (APN), Logicworks Managed AWS service leverages AWS advanced features, including multi-region failovers, log analysis, IAM permission management, and a fully dedicated DevOps practice to enable clients to fully tie applications to the underlying infrastructure to achieve greater efficiencies.
