Ensuring the security of protected health information has never been more critical than it is today. As your organization works to comply with ever-evolving security regulations, pending federal audits, and the risk of breaches, where will you turn for assistance and assurance?
The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) Common Security Framework (CSF) is one of the health care industry’s most widely adopted risk frameworks. It enables you to:
  • Obtain an independent, third-party assessment that meets the HIPAA Security Rule’s risk assessment requirement
  • Identify areas of risk and obtain a remediation plan
  • Improve your security confidence and lower your risk of a security incident or breach of PHI
  • Take your security program to the next level through certification
  • Ensure strong vendor management
  • Be benchmarked against other health care covered entities or business associates of like size and business purpose
With the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) and health information exchanges (HIEs), the growing threat of medical ID theft, and the increased emphasis on individual privacy, you need proper security controls in place. You also need to comply with multiple requirements on several fronts—and those requirements keep changing.
Learning Objectives:
  • What or who is HITRUST?
  • What sets HITRUST apart from other risk assessment frameworks?
  • The importance of risk management beyond regulatory compliance
  • Federal audits: Why a risk assessment has never been so important
  • How Wipfli utilizes HITRUST to help clients with assessing risk
