Geek Sync | Keep your Healthcare Databases Secure and Compliant

Kim Brushaber
03.27.2019 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

One of the most significant concerns for healthcare organizations today is the protection of patient information. Patients expect their healthcare providers to keep personal information safe and secure, whether it is submitted through written or electronic means. Unless healthcare organizations uphold high security standards, they will lose the trust of their patients. As such, healthcare providers are being held accountable to ensure that they are not the weakest link in the security path.

No matter what technologies healthcare organizations use within their operations, they must protect the patients’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in their databases or risk penalties and fines due to data breaches and inappropriate use of patient details. With healthcare regulations such as HIPAA enforcing compliance, healthcare organizations must follow specific protocols to ensure data privacy and security. Join IDERA’s Stan Geiger and Kim Brushaber to learn about the data protection challenges that healthcare organizations face and how to ensure that healthcare databases are secure and compliant.

Geek Sync | Data Architecture and Data Governance: A Powerful Data Management Duo

04.03.2019 @ 11:00 AM CT - 12:00 PM CT

Batman and Robin. Han Solo and Chewbacca. Mario and Luigi. Just like these famous pairings, so it is for data architecture and data governance — they’re aligned to support each other in a variety of ways. Like data governance, data architecture as a practice can be leveraged to identify and enforce standards within the systems landscape to support business objectives. And data architecture certainly benefits from sound business oversight and stakeholder influences inherent in a successful data governance program.

Join Kelle O’Neal to learn about the critical aspects of aligning data architecture and data governance, with a specific focus on:​

  • Why aligning data architecture and data governance is important
  • The key intersections of people, processes and technology between data architecture and data governance
  • How data architecture and data governance work together to enforce standards
  • The capabilities that data governance can apply to data architecture without interfering
  • How your project and development methodologies can help drive alignment
