CSF Assessors are critical to HITRUST’s efforts to provide trained resources to healthcare organizations of varying size and complexity to assess compliance with security control requirements and document corrective action plans that align with the CSF.

The HITRUST CSF Assurance Program delivers simplified compliance assessment and reporting for HIPAA, HITECH, state, and business associate requirements. Leveraging the HITRUST CSF, the program provides healthcare organizations and their business associates with a common approach to manage security assessments that creates efficiencies and contains costs associated with multiple and varied assurance requirements.

The CSF Assurance Program includes the risk management oversight and assessment methodology governed by HITRUST and designed for the unique regulatory and business needs of the healthcare industry.

For organizations wanting to quickly and efficiently assess their security controls to understand their risk exposure, the self-assessment option available through HITRUST is a practical method to achieving this through a common and accepted approach.

Organizations can perform a baseline security or a comprehensive security assessment using MyCSF and receive a self or validated assessment report from HITRUST. MyCSF also provides organizations with the capability to see how their MyCSF Assessment scores compare to the scores of similar organizations or the industry as a whole and manage their remediation efforts in MyCSF.

Assisting in the documentation of findings and preparation of reports are CSF Assessors – those organizations such as 360 Advanced uniquely qualified to deliver services under the CSF Assurance Program.

CSF Assurance Program benefits include:

  • Reduced costs and complexity. Through the adoption of a common set of security objectives and assessment processes, the CSF Assurance Program streamlines how healthcare organizations manage business-associate compliance. Business associates can assess once and report to their many constituents, while healthcare organizations and other external parties benefit from a more complete and effective assessment process.
  • Managed risk. Through a commercially reasonable process, organizations will achieve increased insight into their internal and third-party risks. By freeing resources from reacting to new requirements and audits, organizations can take a proactive approach focusing on the other building blocks of an effective security management program.
  • Simplified compliance. Organizations benefit from a consistent and efficient approach for reporting compliance with internal stakeholders, HIPAA, HITECH, state, and business associates.
