HITRUST Common Security Framework
The HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) is the most widely-adopted security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry, incorporating security controls and requirements from multiple standards, regulations and business requirements applicable to the healthcare industry, including: HIPAA, HITECH, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and others. The resulting framework streamlines the risk and compliance process by providing a comprehensive, prescriptive and scalable framework to protect sensitive healthcare information. Ultimately, an organization’s adoption of the CSF will establish confidence in its ability to ensure the security of personal health information.
