Cloud computing can significantly reduce investment and operating costs for IT operations. However when used in FDA and other regulated environments they need to be validated to ensure consistent on-going performance and security and integrity of stored and managed data. While there are guidelines available on how to deal with standard networks this is not the case for virtual networks and cloud computing, This seminar will give a good understanding of FDA requirements of cloud computing and provide recommendations for implementation

Learning Objectives:
•    Benefits of virtual networks and cloud computing
•    Possible issues when used in FDA regulated environments
•    Recommendations from official task forces
•    Different models: Infrastructure, Platform and Software as a Service
•    Recommendations for different cloud versions: internal/external private, public
•    Validation of cloud vs. traditional computers
•    How to deal with major issues: security, data availability and data integrity
•    Going through a complete project for cloud computing validation
•    Selecting the right Cloud Provider for compliance
•    What and how much to test and documents for different cloud models
•    Considerations for formal agreements with service providers
•    Step-by-step recommendations for using 'clouds' from planning to reporting
•    Putting everything together: documentation for the FDA and every other agency
•    Sharing best practices

For easy implementation, attendees will receive
•    SOP: Using Cloud Computing in Regulated Environments
•    SOP: Using the Internet in Regulated Environments
•    SOP: Qualification of Virtual Networks

Target Audience:

•    IT managers and personnel
•    Everybody responsible for FDA compliance of computer systems
•    Managers from purchasing, documentation and operations
•    All users of computer systems used in regulated environments
•    QA managers and personnel
•    GLP/GMP/GCP auditors
