In a single word: Yes.
So many large payers are raising the bar for data protection ever higher. Those decision makers now require marketing services providers to be HITRUST-compliant and provide certification reports as part of the vendor management process.
HITRUST doesn’t overpromise or underdeliver
HITRUST certification simplifies the certification process and meets all new criteria by providing a framework to comply with numerous information protection regulations, standards and best practices through a single resource. HITRUST-certified marketing providers make a commitment to clients that they will be responsible for managing policies, performing accurate risk assessments, managing the remediation process, and servicing incidents and expectations.
You might know obtaining HITRUST certification is a rigorous process, one participating companies don’t take lightly. The significant investment of time, resources and dollars signifies a substantial commitment to protecting customer data.
By leveraging HITRUST’s extensive experience in regulatory compliance, risk management and assessments – along with policy and framework development – certified organizations will streamline compliance and risk management processes. Additionally, HITRUST consistently updates the management infrastructure. HITRUST CSF is constantly evolving along with the industry (as well as with the sophistication of hackers) to continually reduce risk, mitigate threats and maintain compliance.
This evolution ensures accurate and up-to-date regulations and requirements. And a standardized scoring methodology, workflows, a dashboard and reports enable participants to adopt measures beyond what a traditional governance, risk and compliance (GRC) tool will provide.
Flexibility fuels focus
Most importantly, though, HITRUST allows for scalability to target an organization’s management by type, size and complexity. The solution integrates requirements from more than 15 authoritative sources, including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks such as HIPAA, NIST, ISO and COBIT.
