The foundation of all HITRUST programs and services is the HITRUST CSF, a certifiable framework that provides organizations with a comprehensive, flexible and efficient approach to regulatory compliance and risk management.

Developed in collaboration with information security professionals, the HITRUST CSF rationalizes relevant regulations and standards into a single overarching security framework. Because the HITRUST CSF is both risk- and compliance-based, organizations can tailor the security control baselines based on a variety of factors including organization type, size, systems, and regulatory requirements.

By continuing to improve and update the framework, the HITRUST CSF has become the most widely-adopted security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry. This commitment and expertise demonstrated by HITRUST ensures that organizations leveraging the framework are prepared when new regulations and security risks are introduced.

Fundamental to HITRUST’s mission is the availability of the HITRUST CSF that provides the needed structure, clarity, functionality and cross-references to authoritative sources. The initial development of the CSF leveraged nationally and internationally accepted standards including ISO, NIST, PCI and HIPAA to ensure a comprehensive set of baseline security controls. The CSF normalizes these security requirements and provides clarity and consistency, reducing the burden of compliance with the varied requirements that apply to organizations.
