Richmond, Va. — March 11, 2015 — AIS Network, a leading cloud security and regulatory compliance expert serving the Virginia higher education IT community, announces its sponsorship and participation in the 25th annual conference of the Association of Collegiate Computing Services of Virginia (ACCS). The conference will be held today through Friday at the DoubleTree hotel in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Public and private higher educational institutions in Virginia can purchase AISN’s FERPA-compliant High Security Cloud Services directly, using AISN’s contract with the Commonwealth of Virginia (VA-120416-AISN). The commonwealth depends on AISN to host the state portal, Virginia.gov, and to provide secure, compliant and highly reliable eGov hosting services to the executive branch agencies, educational institutions, counties, cities, towns, emergency responders and all other public entities.
In addition to sponsoring the ACCS conference, AISN will also lead an educational program tomorrow on “Disaster Recovery for Continuity” for universities, colleges and other institutions seeking to protect their data from the consequences of a natural or man-made disaster. AISN CEO Jay Atkinson will introduce Chairman and CTO Kurt Baumann, who will outline the steps needed to establish a disaster recovery plan designed to prevent data loss and downtime in the event of a disaster scenario. The conference presentation is March 12 at 9 a.m.
“We want the higher ed community to have the most up-to-date information and governance protocols with regard to The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and other applicable federal and state data privacy laws,” said Atkinson.
“A large part of that is planning for a disaster, whether it is a storm or earthquake that damages infrastructure, a building flood, human error or an external data breach. AISN’s educational clients rest assured knowing their data will be kept compliant within AISN’s highly secure and disaster-resilient environment. We assist them regularly with auditing, penetration testing and business continuity planning.”
As a conference exhibitor, AISN will also have the opportunity to introduce AISN’s High Security Cloud Services, which are built on the Microsoft Cloud Platform and engineered to provide flexibility to control data, enforce stringent security measures, and maintain 100 percent compliance with 99.999 percent uptime availability. AISN’s “100 Percent Compliance Guarantee” comes standard.
As a conference incentive, educational institutions migrating to any AISN High Security Cloud will get one month of free hosting during their cloud migration month.
AISN is a SWaM-certified small business and the preeminent cloud hosting provider for numerous international commercial enterprises seeking the highest levels of compliance and responsiveness.
