Background on HITRUST
Since it was founded in 2007, HITRUST has championed programs that safeguard sensitive information and manage information risk for global organizations across all industries and throughout the third-party supply chain.
In collaboration with privacy, information security and risk management leaders from the public and private sectors, HITRUST develops, maintains and provides broad access to its widely adopted common risk and compliance management frameworks, related assessments and assurance methodologies. The HITRUST Approach provides organizations a comprehensive information risk management and compliance program that ensures governance efforts are aligned and maintained to support an organization’s information risk management and compliance objectives.
Get Started with the bC Assessment for Good “Cyber Hygiene”
The HITRUST system is rather unique in that it offers a tier-like approach in line with the robustness of what your organization will need to maintain assurance. The bC Assessment will give your organization a chance to do a verified, “good hygiene” self-assessment using the HITRUST Assurance Intelligence Engine (AI Engine) to help identify errors and omissions.
Using 71 control requirement statements, this could be a good option for your organization as more of a “status report” of your information security systems and if your organization’s digital footprint isn’t that large. But if you’re hoping for more than that, there are some additional options available…
Get HITRUST Certified AND Within Budget – i1 Assessment
The HITRUST Implemented, 1-Year (i1) Assessment is a threat-adaptive assessment that has a prescriptive approach to its evaluation, making it suitable for an organization needing moderate assurance requirements. With 219 static controls that leverage security best practices and threat intelligence, you would typically see this kind of assurance level required for organizations needing compliance with such standards like HIPAA (Security Rule), GLBA, or HICP.
ARORA now supports organizations seeking HITRUST i1 Readiness Assessment prior to validated assessment and certification.
Take a deeper dive here into the more resource-friendly HITRUST i1 certification program to determine if this is an optimal path for your organization and your information security budget.
Achieve HITRUST "Cream of the Crop” Status
For those that need an assessment that demonstrates compliance with regulations such as HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA and many others, ARORA Solutions has you covered there as well. We support HITRUST r2 Readiness Assessment efforts, complementing the risk-based, two-year certification program.
In 2021, HITRUST expanded its assessment portfolio to include the bC and i1 assessments. Formerly called the HITRUST CSF Assessment, the HITRUST r2 focuses on a risk-based specification of controls for organizations that need high assurance requirements.
With up to 2,000 control requirement statements, this kind of assessment is one you would typically see in organizations that require such frameworks as NIST SP 800-53, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, HIPAA (Security and Privacy Rules), PCI DSS, GDPR, among many others.
Depending on the compliance environment, most organizations would only require about 200-500 control requirement statements, so controls are variable based on the risk or compliance factors specific to your needs.
