AWS re:Invent 2015 | (SEC304) Architecting for HIPAA Compliance on AWS


This session brings together the interests of engineering, compliance, and security as you align healthcare workloads to the controls in the HIPAA Security Rule. We’ll discuss how to architect for HIPAA compliance using AWS, and introduce a number of new services added to the HIPAA program in 2015, such as Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR). You’ll hear from customers who process and store Protected Health Information on AWS, and how they satisfied their compliance requirements while maintaining agility.

This session helps security and compliance experts see what’s technically possible on AWS, and how implementing the Technical Safeguards in the HIPAA Security Rule is simple and familiar. We map the Security Rule’s Technical Safeguards to AWS features and design patterns to help developers, operations teams, and engineers speak the language of their security and compliance peers.
