This article is an overview of the Risk Threat Matrix and other forward-looking HITRUST topics from the 2019 HITRUST® conference.
The HITRUST 2019 conference was one of the best yet! New learning tracks helped attendees grow their knowledge of new HITRUST offerings, upcoming changes, and a variety of topics in security and privacy. The vendor sponsors were also doing what they do best—showcasing their best HITRUST services.
There were many new ideas and key themes that stood out to me, including:
- Deeper implementation of third-party risk management
- Promotion of the shared-responsibility for controls matrix
- Improved sharing of risk assessments
- Continuous monitoring
- Better threat management
- Improved quality to increase reliability throughout the entire HITRUST process
To support and complement these new themes and services, HITRUST hired quite a few new faces that bring deep experience with the program and a healthy respect from their peers. This blend of “new” and “fresh” shows us that HITRUST is still working hard to provide the risk and compliance community with the tools needed to demonstrate good compliance procedure execution.
