What is HITRUST®?
HITRUST has built, maintains, and leverages the foundational risk management and compliance framework, known as the HITRUST CSF®, which incorporates multiple regulations and standards requirements. HITRUST provides a verifiable framework that identifies and validates crucial systems and platforms that store, process, and transmit sensitive data. It maps to and addresses over 45 standards and regulations such as ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, NIST SP 800-53, HIPAA, CCPA, and GDPR. An authorized third-party assessor audited RapidScale’s policies, processes, and procedures against the HITRUST CSF to validate RapidScale’s HITRUST Certification status. HITRUST Certification must be renewed every two years with an annual interim review to ensure compliance.
