Data Privacy Compliance
Data privacy compliance is not only seeing growth in legislative and regulatory requirements but also in customer and business partner expectations. With the myriad of compliance requirements, a unified solution, such as that offered by the HITRUST Approach, is the most effective and efficient method for privacy and security practitioners from all over the world and in all industries.
To comply with numerous privacy requirements and expectations, you should employ a proven model for scoping out the required controls necessary to operationalize your privacy program and to address the needs across all applicable laws and standards. HITRUST helps you do that by harmonizing multiple frameworks and standards, as well as state, federal, and international regulations into one single best-in-class framework, the HITRUST CSF, which includes foundational authoritative sources, like the Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs), and specific legislation, including the European Union (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) laws. Using the HITRUST assessment process allows you to review your organization’s data protection. Privacy programs should be looked at holistically, not in isolation from other risk-mitigation and security-management activities going on within your organization, to give you the strongest program possible.
With a wave of new data protection regulations coming online around the world, HITRUST is continuously working to ensure that current authoritative sources are integrated into the HITRUST CSF, which helps businesses be proactive in their data protection compliance.
