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 External Assessors, Coalfire is uniquely positioned to provide guidance and insights gleaned from years of interaction with HITRUST and organizations we've partnered with for successful certification. Our expertise includes:

  • Preparation for the HITRUST journey. For each step we help you select the level of risk that's acceptable for your organization based on your internal capabilities, knowledge, and budget.
  • HITRUST in the cloud. Our cloud expertise in certifying the world's largest cloud service providers, AWS Healthcare Competency Partnership, and our participation in the HITRUST Shared Responsibilities working group provides advantages in certifying your own cloud workloads.
  • HITRUST-specific experts. We offer teams that focus on only one area of risk and compliance rather than generalists in several areas. They hone their craft so you get the highest level of expertise plus a deep bench of professionals for faster certification.
  • Post-certification optimization. After successful certification, we help you understand how to optimize the framework and maximize your investment.

Why you should consider HITRUST

  • You’re a service provider that received a letter from a customer requiring HITRUST CSF certification.
  • You’re an organization looking to improve your overall risk management program and security posture.
  • You’re a service provider that wants the most prescriptive approach to protecting customer data, and therefore, be able to use security as a competitive differentiator that can increase revenue.
  • You want a framework that includes, harmonizes, and cross-references existing, globally recognized standards, regulations, and business requirements – including HIPAA, HITECH, NIST, ISO, PCI, FTC, COBIT, and GDPR – and scales controls according to the type, size, and complexity of an organization.
