Do you spend more time worrying about data security and compliance than you do on patient care? You’re not alone.
Data Records Exposed or Stolen
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.
Health data breaches are now being reported at an average rate of more than one per day.
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.
