HITC Lab Project #  – Cloud Computing Security
Scenario: Dr. Mary McNair, Chief of Medical Staff has contacted you as the Chief Information Officer for McNair Memorial Hospital.  She states that she has just come from a Medical Conference in which “Cloud Computing” was discussed and she want to know the following from you:

  • Can confidential patient information be securely stored in “the cloud”?
  • What do the experts say regarding the security of data that is stored on a remote server?
  • What protections would a physician or hospital need to keep their data secure?
  • Are these requirements different from those of a non-health care organization and based on your research, would you recommend that cloud computing be used to storing patient information at McNair Memorial Hospital. Why or why not?


  1. Research the topic thoroughly. Type a three (3) page report of your findings to Dr. McNair.
  2. The report must have a cover page and a reference page that are not counted with the three page report. The report is typed in Microsoft Word, 12pt, double spaced, 1 inch margins. Title of Report – Cloud Computing Security – McNair Memorial Hospital.
  3. Cite any references in the APA style of writing within the document and at the bottom of the report. Do not use your textbook as a reference because it is not a peer reviewed document.
  4. Remember: this is a professional looking document and should be written in the third person and your work as a Chief Information Officer should be reflected.
  5. Save assignment as lastname_HITCLab3 (e.g. McNair_HITCLab3
  6. Submit assignment on or before March 18, 2016 – 11:59 p.m.
