The HITRUST Alliance, in collaboration with healthcare, business, technology and information security leaders, has established the Common Security Framework (CSF)
, a certifiable framework that can be used by any and all healthcare organizations that create, access, store or exchange personal health and financial information. The CSF is an information security framework that harmonizes the requirements of existing standards and regulations, including federal healthcare (HIPAA, HITECH, CMS, and JCAHO), third party (PCI, COBIT) and government (NIST, FTC). As a framework, the CSF provides organizations with the needed structure, detail, and clarity, relating to information security tailored to the healthcare industry.
