External Assessors

External Assessors are organizations that have been approved by HITRUST for performing assessment and services associated with the HITRUST Assurance Program and the HITRUST CSF, a comprehensive security framework that incorporates the existing security requirements of organizations.

External Assessors are critical to HITRUST’s efforts to provide trained resources to organizations of varying size and complexity to assess compliance with security control requirements and document corrective action plans that align with the HITRUST CSF.

Each HITRUST External Assessor Organization (“EA Organization”) has been through a vetting process and demonstrated the ability to perform HITRUST CSF Assessments. The HITRUST vetting process includes reviewing policies and procedures and the background of the individuals performing the assessments. All EA Organizations are required to maintain at least 5 CCSFPs and 2 CHQPs employed within their organization at all times.

Obtaining an EA Organization status indicates that the EA Organization has met all HITRUST requirements to perform HITRUST CSF Assessments and has demonstrated an apparent ability to perform HITRUST CSF Assessments successfully. Although HITRUST strives to ensure that the list of EA Organizations on this webpage remains current and that the EA Organizations continue to meet our standards, HITRUST cannot guarantee that any EA Organization will be successful in their role as an EA Organization on any specific engagement.
