Microsoft and Intraprise Health have opened registration for two HITRUST Community Extension Programs. One to be held at the Microsoft Technology Center in Malvern, PA on Wednesday, August 28, 2019, and the other to be held in San Francisco on September 10, 2019. Supported by HITRUST, hosted by Microsoft, and facilitated by Intraprise Health, the one-day, no cost, events will provide healthcare organizations of all types and sizes an opportunity to engage with local peers to discuss the challenges, best practices, and lessons learned in effectively implementing a risk management program, operating a third-party risk management program and improving cybersecurity practices by leveraging the HITRUST CSF® and the HITRUST Approach.
“We are extremely pleased to be a part of the Community Extension Program with Microsoft at their Technology Centers in Malvern and San Francisco. These events allow us to bring together CIOs and CISOs from all over to learn and share their risk management concerns and questions regarding the HITRUST CSF certification process.” said Ryan Patrick, Senior Vice President, Intraprise Health.
Some of the topics that will be covered include:
- Structuring and implementing an information risk management program
- Considerations in implementing the HITRUST CSF
- Leveraging the HITRUST CSF to implement the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
- Considerations regarding a HITRUST CSF Assessment and reporting options
- Leveraging the HITRUST Threat Catalogue™
- Implementing a third-party assurance program and effective vendor risk management
- How to align information risk management and cyber insurance programs
- Engaging in cyber information sharing and how it supports cyber threat management regardless of size or cyber maturity
“We are very excited to continue this program and to further HITRUST’s engagement with local communities,” said Michael Parisi, vice president, assurance strategy and community development, HITRUST. “This program provides significant value by allowing organizations to engage with, and learn from, others in the community about how they approach the challenges related to managing risk, controlling compliance costs while effectively implementing strong security and privacy posture into the foundation of an organization.”
With the persistence of cyber related threats, organizations are striving not just to enhance and improve their information risk management, regulatory compliance and cyber resilience programs – but do so in an efficient and effective manner. Because the HITRUST CSF, the HITRUST Approach and CSF Assessment cyber threat sharing, and response programs are so widely adopted and are key components of many organization and third-party vendor strategies, this program will aid in streamlining adoption and promoting greater collaboration between organizations across the country.
