As the world continues to become more technologically interconnected, a wide range of businesses find themselves in possession of and required to defend, sensitive data that could be used to identify or contact their members, patients, and customers (I.e. PHI or PII). Handling of this protected data creates a variety of compliance requirements across jurisdictions and is a major target of cyberattacks. Having robust controls, policies, and cybersecurity measures in place is critical to reduce risk, achieve compliance and ensure the safety of your business.
HITRUST, the most recognized standard for assuring data integrity, is the cornerstone of healthy cybersecurity and risk management positioning. Originally used primarily by healthcare groups, its importance has spread across industries, particularly for those who collect and must safeguard PPI and PHI, like hospitality, eCommerce, and financial services companies.
