Introducing a New Comprehensive HITRUST Solution

Nearly 90 percent of all healthcare organizations have suffered at least one data breach in the past two years with an average cost of $2.2 million per attack.hitrustlogo

Even just an allegation of a breach can result in an investigation of your organization by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights.

But, for most, it is virtually impossible to claim your organization is “certified HIPAA compliant” since just a handful of formal processes exist (also see our HIPAA Compliance Program). The most notable method – the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) – works in collaboration with healthcare, technology and information security leaders to establish a Common Security Framework (CSF) that can be used by all organizations that create, access, store or exchange sensitive and/or regulated data.

However, the CSF is just one tool in the arsenal. Many healthcare providers also need the help of trained security and compliance assessors to provide a holistic and flexible, but uniform approach to their regulatory healthcare compliance and risk management goals.

With Sword & Shield’s Comprehensive HITRUST Solution, your healthcare organization will finally receive this integrated support.

Sword & Shield is one of a select number of HITRUST-authorized CSF Assessors and one of the few CSF Assessors that focuses on integrated data security.

Our full life-cycle of support:

  • Assesses your security requirements
  • Provides solutions and product recommendations for remediation
  • Provides validation toward both compliance and a HITRUST certification

Our analysts provide a gap analysis report outlining our finding from an initial assessment. This analysis will outline the gaps between a client’s environment and the HITRUST CSF and includes our recommendations for remediation. Upon completion of these recommendations, our analysts will then prepare the package for submission to HITRUST and will provide your organization with a comprehensive HITRUST assessment report.

“Our credibility in the data security industry and expert analysts help you simplify your HIPAA compliance while we scale our assessment to your organization’s size, type and complexity,” said Sword & Shield Project Manager Margie Dyer. “We incorporate existing globally-recognized standards like HIPAA, PCI and others to provide clear, actionable guidelines that demonstrate exactly how your controls are meeting requirements.”
