Dear HIMSS Puerto Rico Member,


The shift to cloud computing offers healthcare organizations enormous efficiencies, allowing far greater flexibility and capital cost reductions, while most importantly improving provider and patient access to real-time information. However, this shift often changes the way that organizations operate, and presents unique challenges to information security professionals.


This event is intended for Chief Security Officers (CSOs), Compliance Officers and IT executives who are charged with managing risk and meeting regulatory requirements in the cloud.
