As more and more organizations are required to obtain CSF certification, ControlCase provides a comprehensive solution for assessing risk within the healthcare industry.

Fairfax, VA - USA, 2016

ControlCase, a leading global provider of Compliance as a Service (CaaS), Certifications, and IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software announced it has validated the award-winning healthcare management and technology consulting firm HCD International (HCDI) against HITRSUST CSF using its renowned “Compliance as a Service” (CaaS) solution. ControlCase’s CaaS is recognized as one of the most effective solutions on the market for organizations wishing to achieve HITRUST CSF certification as well as manage overall third-party risk within the healthcare industry.

"The healthcare industry has become a prime target for data breaches and data theft, resulting in increasingly complex compliance regulations,” said Kishor Vaswani, CEO – ControlCase. “ControlCase provides a detailed and formalized methodology for analysis with HITRUST in order to help companies tackle this new challenge.”

ControlCase’s engagement with HCDI involved ControlCase assessing the company’s Community Outreach Services environment in relation to the 19 domains of the HITRUST Common Security Framework using CaaS methodology, a proven approach to simplifying HITRUST CSF compliance. Upon completion of the assessment, ControlCase submitted the results to HITRUST, which in turn issued a Validated Assessment Report.

“The assistance and guidance provided by ControlCase was stellar. The partnership with Control Case was vital in interpreting the standards set forth by HITRUST. The assessment process has taken HCD International to the next level in data protection,” said Marshall Frett Jr, IT Director/ Engineer – HCD International.

HITRUST CSF Assurance Program is already the most widely adopted assessment approach by healthcare organizations to evaluate and communicate their information privacy and security posture.
“More organizations are recognizing the significance of not only achieving compliance but also ensuring their business associates are compliant as well,” said Vaswani.
“ControlCase is committed to working with entities within the healthcare industry to achieve compliance and make security a ‘business as usual’ activity. The CaaS solution includes a combination of hardware, software, onsite and offsite services that cost-effectively deliver one of the best values you will find in the marketplace.”

ControlCase is an approved HITRUST CSF Assessor providing a time and cost effective solution to help organizations assess themselves against HITRUST CSF. CaaS also works in parallel with ControlCase One Audit, a service that allows entities to collect evidence once; and achieve compliance/certification with multiple regulations, including HIPAA, PCI, GLBA, ISO and SOC.
