HIPAA Management For AWS

Configure, Monitor, and Maintain HIPAA Security Controls In Amazon Web Services

Managing HIPAA Compliance In AWS

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) dictates data privacy and security requirements for managing medical information. Healthcare organizations have to manage many security concerns when building HIPAA complaint solutions and managing protected health information (PHI) in Amazon Web Services (AWS). While AWS has developed several cloud security programs, and provides a business associates agreement (BAA), security and compliance is ultimately a shared responsibility for AWS and the cloud customer.

Under the AWS cloud shared responsibility model, AWS is responsible for many of the HIPAA physical safeguards, but it is up to the cloud customer to manage all administrative and technical safeguards. Organizations must adopt HIPAA administrative policies and implement HIPAA technical controls including backup and disaster recovery, audit logging, and intrusion detection.
