Cloud Privacy and Physical Restrictions: Perhaps more in common that not…
Physical storage and cloud-based storage are dynamic and intertwining in their correlation.
Medical facilities are fully aware that the repercussions of poor security protection can be considerably overwhelming. Consequences range from theft of equipment and prescriptions, unauthorized access into ambulances, and even the public leakage of confidential patient information. When considering a hospital’s number of employees, amount of square footage and amount of doors, placing various bars of restriction on different cabinets for different employees working different hours is a monumental task. Due to control system’s IP based technology, camera systems have become considerably more restricted than before. Further, the installation of this improved control system costs less. As far as doors themselves, keys are becoming a historical remnant. Modern technology allows designated controllers to control the lock on a door via a web server from a distant, perhaps even remote location. Costs spent on replacing keys and building entirely new locks are dwindling tremendously, saving money and increasing ease of scalability. Such cloud-based stepping-stones allowed for this growing expectation of convenient, immediate problem resolution. In conjunction with this improved level of physical monitoring, management software continually updates reports that lists and tracks who accessed which cabins at what time.
