If you’re putting the brakes on your HITRUST certification because of stretched resources, there’s a better way forward.
When it comes to third-party risk management, your customers are looking for more than peace of mind – they want certifiable credibility and transparency. HITRUST assurances offer that credibility, but managing the process and resources to become HITRUST-certified can be a significant hurdle. Our team can assess your organization against the HITRUST CSF framework to address customer needs through two kinds of certifiable assessments.
You can become certified on the Risk-based, 2-year (r2) Validated Assessment, which is the new name for the original certification option. Alternatively, you can become certified on the Implemented, 1-year (i1) Validated Assessment, which is a lower effort one-year certification option focused on the implemented maturity level. If you’re looking to become HITRUST certified on either option, look no further.
Going through HITRUST certification is a great way to fulfill client compliance requirements for controls and data security, but it’s about more than checking a box. Certification really shows how your organization provides holistic information protection, encompassing both security and technology elements and privacy and compliance processes.
Plus, the consistent framework offers standardized controls, which give you specific guidance for implementation and maintenance. HITRUST validated assessment and certification processes have lots of moving parts and pieces – but you don’t have to manage them alone.
Gaining a HITRUST certification can provide the credibility you need to both reassure your current customers and attract new business.
