Building Blocks to Better Collaboration, Risk Management & Cybersecurity

With the persistence of cyber related threats, healthcare organizations of all sizes are striving not just to enhance and improve their information risk management, regulatory compliance and cyber resilience programs – but do so in an efficient and effective manner. For many organizations, the HITRUST CSF, CSF Assessment and cyber threat sharing and response programs are fundamental tools to achieving their goals.

HITRUST’s experience has shown that education and knowledge transfer play a fundamental role in simplifying the process, shortening the time in adopting its programs and maximizing their value. In addition, many benefits are gained in collaborating with peers to share lessons learned, discuss best practices and establish relationships that support ongoing knowledge transfer and collaboration as it relates to implementing the HITRUST CSF or addressing the latest cyber threats.

As part of our commitment to support and engage with organizations to help them adopt and leverage the various HITRUST resources, we have launched a Community Extension Program to promote education and collaboration. These town hall events will be held across the U.S. and coordinated by HITRUST, hosted by organizations within the community and facilitated by HITRUST CSF Assessors.

These sessions are no cost for attendees and will be held initially in 50 communities across the U.S. and will be expanded or duplicated over the coming year based on demand.
