HITRUST takes a proactive leadership role in addressing many of the unique challenges associated with the implementation and maintenance of information protection and cybersecurity risk management programs within the healthcare industry. But HITRUST’s position as an industry thought leader comes in large measure from its strategic alliances and the broader healthcare community HITRUST supports.
