HITRUST Policy and Compliance Toolkit Available for Download

By sourcing documents from our award-wining ISO 27001/27002: 2103 toolkit, along with utilizing existing information security and operational policies from our vast database of InfoSec documents, FLANK has successfully developed high-quality documents that cover the following control requirements within the HITRUST framework:

  • Access Control
  • Human Resources
  • Risk Management
  • Security Policy
  • Organization of Security
  • Compliance
  • Asset Management
  • Physical and Environmental Security
  • Communications and Operations
  • IS Acquisition, Development, and Maintenance
  • IS Incident Management
  • Business Continuity Management
  • Privacy Practices

Additionally, if you’re short on time and manpower, FLANK has staff available for authoring HITRUST policies and procedures for your organization. While HITRUST compliance focuses heavily on many of the information security and operational requirements, companies often tend to forget about the need for well-written policies and procedures, and that’s where we can assist. Ask any healthcare organization that’s being required to become HITRUST compliant – or even HIPAA compliant – what’s the most demanding and time-consuming aspect of such an endeavor, and they’ll almost always state its writing policies and procedures.

HITRUST and HIPAA Toolkits that are More than Just Policies

HITRUST compliance is much more than just authoring information security policies, healthcare organizations will also need to perform an annual risk assessment, conduct security awareness training, implement an incident response plan, and more. Such initiatives are much more than just “policies”, they require action from your organization in performing certain tasks. Luckily, FLANK also provides industry leading documentation for executing on such requirements. Specifically, we offer a risk management & risk assessment program, a security awareness training manual, a business continuity and disaster recovery plan, along with a cyber incident response and reporting program – all for the broader healthcare industry (i.e., HITRUST, HIPAA, CMS, etc.) – and all for instant download. Visit flank.org today for learning more about the world’s very best policy toolkits and templates.

HIPAA Policy Templates Also Available

Many healthcare organizations undergoing HITRUST compliance must also adhere to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements, particularly the HIPAA Security Rule and the HIPAA Privacy Rule. FLANK also provides high-quality HIPAA policy templates for helping Covered Entities and Business Associates become HIPAA compliant.

  • HIPAA Security Rule Policies and Procedures Templates Packet: Our HIPAA policy templates contain both policies and procedures for ensuring rapid and complete compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule mandates.
  • HIPAA Privacy Rule Policies and Procedures Templates Packet: Our HIPAA policy templates contain both policies and procedures for ensuring rapid and complete compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule mandates.

Disclaimer: FLANK provides a wide-range of security, governance and regulatory compliance services and solutions as requested by healthcare organizations who contact us in need of assistance. At times, such assistance may include professional recommendations/advice for internal controls relating to HITRUST compliance that are based on ISO 27001/27002 publications and/or the actual CSF guidelines. Such recommendations are only offered when a client provides us with relevant HITRUST documentation for which they have accessed from https://hitrustalliance.net/, and then provided to FLANK. Because FLANK is not a HITRUST assessor, we do not access the HITRUST portal at https://hitrustalliance.net/. Additionally, our documentation, the ISO 27001/27002:2013 All-in-One Toolkit, contains proprietary, copyrighted information that was developed independent from any input from the HITRUST CSF, rather, exclusively by FLANK personnel who have years of relevant ISO 27k expertise. FLANK does not endorse, promote HITRUST, and FLANK is not affiliated in any manner with HITRUST.
