Beginning Your Secure Future
Introducing a 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.

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.
