HITRUST assessment and certification

Connect with us

The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) provides a certifiable information security framework (CSF) that supplements existing framework controls with industry insights and best practices to provide clarity and consistency lacking in many standards and regulations. This normalization of processes allows you and your vendors to conduct a single assessment while meeting the requirements of multiple compliance initiatives.

Effectively manage risk, meet compliance requirements and improve data protection

As one of the original HITRUST CSF Assessor firms, Coalfire is uniquely positioned to provide guidance and insights gleaned from years of interaction with HITRUST, and organizations that have undergone HITRUST CSF certification. Our expertise includes:

  • Streamlining HITRUST CSF and Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) controls with the migration of HIPAA security/privacy modules within EHNAC accreditations to the HITRUST CSF framework.
  • Saving clients up to 40% in time, cost, and security team productivity through Coalfire Controls, an AICPA-member firm that performs SOC audits in conjunction with HITRUST assessments.
  • Sharing cybersecurity industry best practices through event presentations, webinars, case studies, and white papers.
