  • Data Privacy for the Healthcare Industry Recorded: Sep 20 2017 58 mins
    Sheila FitzPatrick
    Patient data is one of the greatest assets that healthcare organizations have. But it can also be their greatest challenge, especially with the rapidly expanding data privacy and sovereignty laws around the world.

    Whether you operate in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, the Pacific Rim, Latin America, or any other jurisdiction, your ability to embrace new technology is being affected by legal obligations. You are now obligated to address data privacy compliance and localization as part of your planning process, particularly as they relate to personal health information.

    These issues are even more important as we see new regulations for patient data and electronic health records, especially with the upcoming enforcement of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This regulation will affect healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, and even biomedical research organizations everywhere in the world—even if they do not have operations in Europe. U.S.-based healthcare organizations can no longer look at just HIPAA/HITECH as the sole regulation that requires compliance.

    Join us for part four in this webcast series as Sheila FitzPatrick discusses the rapidly expanding privacy laws that affect personal health information and the extraterritorial nature of some of these laws, including GDPR. Sheila will also talk about the importance of building a legal privacy compliance framework as the foundation to meet your obligations under data privacy laws, including GDPR, and the difference between privacy and security. She will explain how such a framework is also important to help your organization embrace new technology such as the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT).

    Specifically, Shelia will cover:
    •The changing legal landscape
    •The importance of privacy due diligence
    •The challenges with new technology
    •Data privacy versus data security
  • Best Practices for Securing Your Data Recorded: Jul 19 2017 53 mins
    Kim Wallace, Bryan Schramm, and Andrae Middleton
    Do you have questions about the nuanced differences between data security and data privacy? Join us for part three in this webcast series where we will host an interactive panel with some of NetApp’s leading subject matter experts in this space.

    We’ll start the session with an interactive discussion amongst our panelists around external and internal threats you should be concerned with, data security in the cloud, best practices around auditing, leveraging technology to meet data privacy requirements, and much more. We’ll then take questions from you, our live audience on anything top-of-mind. This invaluable session will be a webcast you won’t want to miss.
  • Solving the Public Cloud Problem Recorded: Jun 7 2017 54 mins
    Spencer Sells, NetApp, and Matt Wallace, Faction
    Good news: It’s easier than ever to build a comprehensive hybrid- and multi-cloud strategy utilizing NetApp Private Storage as a Service (NPSaaS) from Faction. Access it from AWS, Azure, Softlayer, and Google Cloud simultaneously, as well as from Equinix, CoreSite, and other cloud-centric datacenters — all pay-per-Terabyte with nothing to buy and configure.

    Bad news: A lot of IT departments are having problems supporting their developers and digital transformation initiatives. Complexity and data locality and security concerns have stalled a lot of efforts, and the networking expertise alone to create hybrid environments has derailed many initiatives.

    Learn how NetApp Private Storage as a Service Fueled by Faction solves this problem by providing inherently hybrid- and multi-cloud enabled storage that you can “just use”. Learn how to make your data more mobile, avoid outrageous public cloud egress charges, and enable multi-cloud functionality for your developers. We’ll teach you how to become a multi-cloud hero.

You’ll learn how to quickly recover from outages, maintain the availability of critical applications, and securely back up data to any cloud. Discover how to achieve near-instant recovery from failures with zero data loss.
  • Data Privacy and Sovereignty – Global Challenges in the Cloud Recorded: Apr 12 2017 59 mins
    Sheila Fitzpatrick
    Do you understand the nuances between data security and data privacy? Have you identified the critical data that should and shouldn’t live in the cloud? Who owns your data if a breach occurs and what impact will that have on your business? NetApp is launching an ongoing webcast series that will dive into issues that everyone needs to consider when using cloud computing.

    To kick off the series, we sit down with Sheila FitzPatrick, one of the world’s leading experts in data privacy laws. With over thirty years of experience, she provides expertise and hands-on experience in the areas of global data protection compliance, data sovereignty, cybersecurity regulations and obligations, legal issues associated with cloud computing and big data, data breach compliance and management, and records management.

    Join Sheila to learn how to better manage your data privacy over the cloud.
  • Solving the Public Cloud Problem: NetApp Private Storage as a Service Recorded: Dec 15 2016 54 mins

    NetApp Private Storage as a Service Fueled by Faction

    The new era of hybrid cloud is here. According to IDC, 80% of enterprises will commit to a hybrid cloud architecture by 2017.

    And that’s not the five-year projection. That’s one month from now.

    The good news for these companies is that it is now easier than ever to leverage public cloud resources from titans like Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM SoftLayer, and Microsoft Azure to accelerate development and increase agility.

    The bad news? Public clouds may pose concerns over security, compliance, cost, and vendor lock-in that make them hard to fully embrace.

    NetApp Private Storage (NPS) as a Service Fueled by Faction solves the public cloud problem by providing pay-as-you-go private, enterprise storage with multicloud access to AWS, IBM SoftLayer, and Azure.

    Join speakers from NetApp and Faction to learn how this unique joint offering solves the public cloud problem and accelerates your transition to the hybrid cloud.
