What is HITRUST?
Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) is a privately held organization that helps companies, especially in the health industry, manage data, information risk, and compliance. HITRUST CSF is a compliance framework created by HITRUST combining various cyber security frameworks such as NIST 800-53, ISO 27001, HIPAA, PCI and more. Every organization has different requirements and scope for the HITRUST CSF assessment which is why the controls are never the same. HITRUST CSF requires you to update the scope of your organization by accessing HITRUST’s MyCSF platform. Based on your scope, HITRUST creates a customized list of security controls that are applicable to you. It is crucial for organizations to have the expertise and knowledge necessary to understand the scope of HITRUST CSF in order to correctly build your cyber security program.

HITRUST is a globally accepted cyber security framework. Becoming HITRUST certified allows you to prove to your customers that your organization is compliant in more than one cyber security framework.
