What does it mean to be HITRUST certified?
The HITRUST CSF provides the structure, transparency, guidance, and cross-references to authoritative sources organizations globally need to be certain of their data protection compliance. The initial development of the HITRUST CSF leveraged nationally and internationally accepted security and privacy-related regulations, standards, and frameworks–including ISO, NIST, PCI, HIPAA, and GDPR–to ensure a comprehensive set of security and privacy controls and continually incorporates additional authoritative sources. The HITRUST CSF standardizes these requirements, providing clarity and consistency and reducing the burden of compliance.The commitment and expertise demonstrated by HITRUST ensure that organizations leveraging the framework are prepared when new security and privacy regulations and risks are introduced.
By including federal and state regulations, standards, and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST Assurance Program helps organizations address security and data protection challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.READ THE PRESS RELEASE
