HITRUST e1 Essentials Assessment Adds Efficiency and Flexibility to the HITRUST Portfolio

  • To get meaningful assurance reports for Merger/Acquisition partners, new business units, or recently deployed technology platforms.
  • To show justification for more favorable cyber insurance premiums.

  • For organizations that need additional time to implement the more robust control environment needed for HITRUST i1 or r2 Assessments.
  • As a milestone to show progress towards an i1 or r2.
  • For enterprises that are new to HITRUST to get started.

e1 for Third-Party Risk Management
