April 5, 2011 - PRLog -- Rsam, a leader in governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that it will incorporate the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) Common Security Framework (CSF) within the Rsam GRC Platform.   The CSF, the most comprehensive and widely-adopted security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry, will be integrated with a proven, 7th generation technology platform to deliver a single solution for automating CSF-based assessments for healthcare organizations. Visit for details.

The HITRUST CSF harmonizes the requirements of existing standards and regulations, including federal (HIPAA, HITECH), third party (PCI, COBIT) and government (NIST, FTC) and is the basis for assessments conducted through the HITRUST CSF Assurance program.  

Rsam has a strong background providing GRC solutions to many of the leading healthcare providers, health plans and many federal agencies including some of the regulators in the healthcare and financial space.  Whether healthcare organizations have already adopted the CSF or are just starting to work with the framework, Rsam enables them to automate the core processes of data collection and remediation tracking, perform advanced risk analysis and easily create dashboards and reports using a simple drag-and-drop interface. Over time, customers can also add solutions such as Threat and Vulnerability Management, Incident Tracking and others, to their existing GRC program using the Rsam Platform as a central repository to manage risks from a holistic perspective.

"We are very excited about the collaboration with HITRUST. The CSF is an excellent, comprehensive framework for healthcare organizations," said Vivek Shivananda CEO of Rsam.  "The integration of the CSF with Rsam not only adds value to healthcare organizations by automating their CSF assessment process but empowers their risk and compliance programs by leveraging Rsam's risk-based scoring, reporting and dynamic workflows."

“HITRUST is always looking for ways to add greater efficiencies and flexibility for organizations conducting assessments through the CSF Assurance program,” said Daniel Nutkis, Chief Executive Officer, HITRUST.  “By incorporating the CSF within the Rsam GRC Platform, we are able to offer automation features and advanced risk analysis that achieve these goals and more.”
