HITRUST Assessments and HITRUST CSF
Data security is becoming an increasingly important concern for healthcare organizations. The HITRUST CSF was developed to address the multitude of security, privacy and regulatory challenges facing healthcare organizations. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.

The foundation of all HITRUST programs and services is the HITRUST CSF, a certifiable framework that provides organizations with a comprehensive, flexible and efficient approach to regulatory compliance and risk management.
Developed in collaboration with healthcare and information security professionals, the HITRUST CSF rationalizes healthcare-relevant regulations and standards into a single overarching security framework. Because the HITRUST CSF is both risk- and compliance-based, organizations can tailor the security control baselines based on a variety of factors, including organization type, size, systems, and regulatory requirements.
By continuing to improve and update the CSF, the HITRUST CSF has become the most widely-adopted security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry. This commitment and expertise demonstrated by HITRUST ensures that healthcare organizations leveraging the framework are prepared when new regulations and security risks are introduced.
