HITRUST Brings Rely-Ability™ and Efficiency to All Levels of Information Assurance
Enhanced HITRUST CSF framework improves functionality and efficiency across the entire HITRUST Assessment Portfolio
HITRUST continuously reviews and improves the HITRUST CSF® framework. CSF® Version 11 makes cybersecurity control assessments more efficient and effective by adding numerous enhancements that increase threat protection, add program flexibility, and reduce the ongoing effort for security assurances.
Top Reasons the HITRUST CSF v.11 Enhances and Redefines the HITRUST Assessment Portfolio
- New entry-level Essentials (e1) Assessment + Certification focuses on the most essential and foundational cybersecurity controls.
- The e1 provides an excellent starting point for enterprises early in their program maturity, or as the final assurance destination for low-risk organizations.
- Unique assessment portfolio design supports an efficient path to program maturity by sharing common controls that build on each other to simplify the journey toward stronger security capabilities and assurances.
- Inheritance of control scoring and evaluation investments from previous HITRUST assessments make the assessment process faster and easier to perform.
- Each assessment strikes the right balance of time and effort to achieve the appropriate level of HITRUST assurance.
