HITRUST Assessment

HITRUST Compliance


Start Your HITRUST Assessment TODAY!

When it comes to security, the world of healthcare technology and compliance can be a complicated place. The HITRUST CSF was developed to address the multitude of security, privacy and regulatory challenges facing organizations when handling sensitive personal and financial data.

As an authorized HITRUST CSF Assessor, Lark Security has the expertise to guide your organization through the entire HITRUST journey, from readiness planning to final validated assessment.

The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) was founded in 2007 to help healthcare companies and organizations across all industries safeguard sensitive information and manage risk. Today, the HITRUST Common Risk and Compliance frameworks, assessments and assurance methodologies are widely adopted.

At the foundation of all its programs is the HITRUST Common Security Framework (HITRUST CSF). The HITRUST CSF harmonizes the requirements of existing standards and regulations, including Federal (HIPAA, HITECH), third party (PCI, COBIT) and government (NIST, FTC, GDPR, ISO), into a single, comprehensive and flexible information security framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls. And 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.

In order to achieve HITRUST Certification, an organization must demonstrate that its people, processes and systems comply with the HITRUST requirements.

Lark Security is an Approved HITRUST CSF Assessor and is authorized by the HITRUST Alliance to provide HITRUST Gap Assessment, HITRUST Readiness and HITRUST Validation.

As an authorized Assessor, Lark Security provides highly trained resources to assess compliance with security control requirements and document corrective action plans that align with the HITRUST CSF. Our people are experienced IT professionals too, making them uniquely qualified to identify and remediate security weaknesses.
