There are many inconsistencies and ambiguous details in the requirements for HIPAA compliance. The vague language and lack of guidance make it difficult to understand HIPAA’s “reasonable and appropriate” protections. If you make a mistake in meeting HIPAA’s requirements, you risk hefty fines and security breaches—or worse, the loss of your brand reputation.
HITRUST (The Health Information Trust Alliance) created the Common Security Framework (CSF) and incorporated best practices across several industries to create a meaningful, robust compliance framework for healthcare. By incorporating the requirements of HIPAA, PCI, ISO and NIST, the CSF creates a certifiable baseline that promises HIPAA compliance and effective security.
