Curious about Cloud Computing?

Many public health professionals have cloud computing on their radar. Some people view cloud computing as a potential solution for public health surveillance, some view the cloud as a potential threat to health information privacy, while others are simply just curious to know more. 

In response to the growing curiosity about this new technology and its future role in public health surveillance, ISDS recently hosted a webinar entitled "Public Health Surveillance in the Internet Cloud: The BioSense 2.0 Experience" to shed some light on the topic. Presenters Jeff Barr, Amazon Web Services, and Mike Alletto, CDC BioSense 2.0 Redesign Team, introduced some basic information on cloud computing and discussed the government cloud services of the BioSense 2.0 environment.
