The HITRUST 2024 Trust Report

May 1, 2024 | HITRUST

HITRUST recently released its inaugural Trust Report, which details statistics and measurable results from HITRUST’s framework. The report establishes HITRUST’s effectiveness in reducing the risk of cyber incidents through detailed analysis of HITRUST’s assurance mechanisms. 

Trust, Relevance, and Reliability

The 2024 Trust Report provides a comprehensive explanation of how the HITRUST framework provides assurances within the context of a constantly evolving digital threat landscape, with a specific focus on how relevance and reliability build trust. 

HITRUST is built on six essential principles: transparency, scalability, accuracy, integrity, and efficiency. The report shows how each of these principles plays a role in an effective security compliance program. 

Key Statistics 

The report includes some key statistics that demonstrate the value of the HITRUST framework: 

  • Only 0.64% of HITRUST-certified environments reported breaches in the last two years (2022 and 2023).
  • 97% of all threat indicators in MITRE ATT&CK are covered by the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF). The remaining 3% do not have identified mitigations in the MITRE ATT&CK framework.
  • HITRUST r2 certified organizations are committed to security accountability as demonstrated by 92% of controls that did not fully meet the HITRUST CSF framework requirements being remediated within one year of achieving certification.

The report does more than present HITRUST as a compliance solution—it asks readers to “critically assess the assurance mechanisms currently in place within their organizations” with the following questions:

  • Is your organization sufficiently equipped to address the nuances of today’s digital threats? 
  • Do you offer a level of assurance that instills confidence not just within your organization, but among your stakeholders and customers?
