You have probably heard people talk about "the cloud" or moving their business files to the cloud. But what exactly is cloud computing? And how in the world does it have anything to do with my office copier? What Is the Cloud? The best place to start in beginning to understand the cloud is the use of a mainframe computer "back in the day." In the early days of computers, mainframe machines could easily take up an entire room and were cost prohibitive for businesses to own.

The vast majority of those counterfeit bills were made by amateurs using high-tech digital copier and printer products. [...]

Fast forward 13 years to 2009, when the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Suddenly, there was an intersection between EHR adoption, government incentives and the safety and security of electronic PHI. Thanks to HIPAA, HITECH and other factors too numerous to list [...]
