CISO Consulting is pleased to announce the launch of a new service for organizations wishing to achieve HIPAA Security Rule Compliance utilizing the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF).

Per the HITRUST website,

HITRUST, in collaboration with healthcare, business, technology and information security leaders, has establish the HITRUST CSF, a certifiable framework that can be used by any and all organizations that create, access, store or exchange personal health and financial information.”

The HITRUST CSF is an industry-recognized framework that provides:

  • A consistent and efficient method for determining your level of compliance with HIPAA requirements,
  • A method for tracking progress towards remediation,
  • A process for evidence gathering to demonstrate your compliance, and
  • Assurances to your customers and Board of Directors of your regulatory compliance.
