New Guidance for Healthcare Organizations to Assess Cybersecurity Preparedness Rise in Cyber Threats Targeted at the Healthcare Industry Leads to Increased Industry Awareness
Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST)
In response to heightened awareness and concerns about cyber
threats, attacks and incidents, new guidance for healthcare
organizations wanting to assess the state of their cybersecurity
preparedness has been released.
The guidance identifies an appropriate subset of controls within
the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) that are most
directly related to detecting and thwarting cyber-related
breaches and allows organizations to assess against the
cyber-specific controls and receive a snapshot of their cyber
capabilities and readiness.
