Sherlock Cloud was developed to comply with the Federal Information System Management Act (FISMA), which requires compliance with hundreds of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) controls governing system access, information control, and management processes. Subsequently, the Health CI Division expanded its cloud offering to include a Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant environment. Notably, HIPAA does not prescribe the exact physical and technical safeguards a cloud service provider must employ to ensure its cloud complies with the Act. As a result, the Health CI Division utilized its FISMA/NIST 800-53 expertise to build and deploy its HIPAA environment.
