Cloud Compliance: A Joint Effort


HIPAA compliance is a joint effort between cloud providers and your organization. It is a constant process of review, monitoring, and maintaining. Public cloud providers such as Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) typically provide Business Associates Agreement (BAA) that dictates specific cloud services may be configured for HIPAA compliance and layout technical and physical safeguards. It is the responsibility of the organization to properly configure their cloud environment, create organizational policies, and develop applications that meet HIPAA compliance standards.
