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 data protection professionals, the HITRUST CSF rationalizes relevant regulations and standards into a single overarching security and privacy framework. Because the HITRUST CSF is both risk- and compliance-based, organizations of varying risk profiles can customize the security and privacy control baselines through a variety of factors including organization type, size, systems, and regulatory requirements.

HITRUST understands data protection compliance and the challenges of assembling and maintaining the many and varied programs, which is why our integrated approach ensures the components are aligned, maintained, and comprehensive in order to support your organization’s information security management program. Due to this, HITRUST CSF has become a widely adopted security and privacy framework across industries globally.

The HITRUST CSF provides the structure, transparency, guidance, and cross-references to authoritative sources organizations globally need to be certain of their data protection compliance. The initial development of the HITRUST CSF leveraged nationally and internationally accepted security and privacy related regulations, standards, and frameworks–including ISO, NIST, PCI, HIPAA, and COBIT–to ensure a comprehensive set of security and privacy controls, and continually incorporates additional authoritative sources. The HITRUST CSF standardizes these requirements, providing clarity and consistency and reducing the burden of compliance.

The commitment and expertise demonstrated by HITRUST ensure that organizations leveraging the framework are prepared when new security and privacy regulations and risks are introduced.
