One Framework, One Assessment, Globally.

The foundation of all HITRUST programs and services is the HITRUST CSF, a certifiable framework that provides organizations globally a comprehensive, flexible, and efficient approach to regulatory/standards 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 various factors, including organization type, size, systems, and compliance 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 GDPR–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.

FAQ

Will v9.6.0 and v9.5.2 both be in the HITRUST MyCSF platform?

Yes. Both v9.6.0 and v9.5.2 will be accessible in MyCSF.

What’s different between HITRUST CSF v9.6.0 and v9.5.2?

v9.6.0 incorporates modifications of certain requirement statements and illustrative procedures in anticipation of the HITRUST Implemented, 1-year (“i1”) Validated Assessment release, as well as a refreshed NIST SP 800-53 revision 4 mapping and the inclusion of NIST SP 800-53 revision 4 as a selectable compliance factor.

If an organization is in the process of starting an assessment in v9.5.2, should they re-evaluate and move to v9.6.0?

The reason an organization would move to v9.6.0 would be to incorporate the modifications made to support the introduction of the i1 assessment type or to select NIST SP 800-53 revision 4 as a compliance factor.

How will this impact existing v9.5.2 assessments in process?

There will be no impact unless an organization and assessor firm determine the modifications to certain requirement statements and illustrative procedures in v9.6.0 is appropriate for the scope and requirements of the assessed entity. Assessments for v9.5.2 can still be generated despite the release of v9.6.0.
