HITRUST Academy offers the only training courses designed to educate healthcare security professionals about information protection in the healthcare industry and the utilization of the HITRUST CSF to manage risk. The courses are intended to prepare security professionals for assessing against the evolving compliance landscape shaped by HITECH, HIPAA, CMS and various other federal, state and business requirements.

HITRUST Academy also includes focused courses that provide instruction on basic and advanced capabilities of the MyCSF tool, user and object administration, and how to leverage MyCSF to manage your risk management program. Additionally, we have developed a new training and certification program to increase the number of experts capable of applying risk-based de-identification methodologies that follow the HIPAA Privacy Rule Expert Determination Standard.

HITRUST Academy courses are recommended for any security professional from a healthcare organization that is responsible for protecting health information or is planning to implement the CSF and prepare for a self- or third-party assessment.
