Should my organization pause or delay the process of starting a HITRUST CSF Assessment due to these upcoming changes?
No. There is no advantage in waiting to begin your HITRUST journey. The HITRUST MyCSF SaaS platform can be leveraged at any point after changes are introduced to compare the delta in requirement statements between different framework versions, helping customers determine whether switching from v9.x of the framework to v10 (future) makes sense for your organization. Whichever you decide, beginning a HITRUST CSF Assessment utilizing v9.x now will not cause delays or derail the assessment process, but rather give your organization a head start.
