Is HITRUST based on NIST?


Yes, HITRUST is based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF). HITRUST combines the base controls of the NIST CSF with controls from other frameworks and standards such as HIPAA and HITECH. HITRUST is designed to provide a comprehensive approach to managing risk and protecting sensitive data. It provides a common language and set of controls to help organizations assess, measure, and manage their cybersecurity risk.

The framework is based on the NIST CSF, which provides a set of core functions and activities to help organizations identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover from cyber threats. HITRUST also includes additional controls and standards from other frameworks, such as HIPAA and HITECH, which are designed to help organizations meet specific regulatory requirements. These additional controls increase the security posture of organizations, helping them protect their sensitive data and maintain compliance with applicable regulations.

Overall, HITRUST is based on the NIST CSF, but it also includes additional controls and standards from other frameworks, which increase the security posture of organizations and help them meet applicable regulatory requirements.
