BrightLine Certified as a HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) Assessor

BrightLine Adds HITRUST to Its Suite of Compliance Services

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - June 02, 2015) - BrightLine CPAs & Associates, Inc., a leading provider of compliance services, has been designated as a Common Security Framework (CSF) Assessor by the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST). The new service builds upon BrightLine's deep healthcare expertise making it the only firm in the world that can offer a comprehensive suite of SOC 2, HIPAA, PCI, penetration testing, and ISO assessments.

HITRUST was developed in collaboration with the healthcare and information security industry. The HITRUST CSF streamlines the myriad of healthcare and security regulations/standards into one holistic security framework. As HITRUST is both risk and compliance-oriented, organizations have the ability to customize the framework on organization type, size, systems, and regulatory requirements.

BrightLine's framework and suite of complementary services allows each assessment to be tailored to its specific compliance requirement and leverage the controls of a client's current compliance initiatives. It can also combine other client-specific requirements, allowing BrightLine to perform testing once and deliver multiple comprehensive reports for several examinations and assessments. As a CSF Assessor, BrightLine will be able to provide security assessments for both healthcare organizations and business associates to assess compliance with industry security requirements and standards.

"Over the past several years, HITRUST has developed and matured a comprehensive security control framework designed for the healthcare space in mind," said Greg Miller, BrightLine's HITRUST practice lead. "BrightLine is pleased to be able to complement our existing security and compliance offerings with HITRUST assessments."
