The Health Information Trust Alliance, or HITRUST, is a privately held company located in the United States that, in collaboration with healthcare, technology, and information security leaders, has established a Common Security Framework (CSF) that can be used by all organizations that create, access, store or exchange sensitive and/or regulated data.
The HITRUST CSF, a certifiable framework that provides organizations with a comprehensive, flexible and efficient approach to regulatory compliance and risk management.
Developed in collaboration with information security professionals, the HITRUST CSF rationalizes relevant regulations and standards into a single overarching security framework. Because the HITRUST CSF is both risk- and compliance-based, organizations can tailor the security control baselines based on a variety of factors including organization type, size, systems, and regulatory requirements.
By continuing to improve and update the framework, the HITRUST CSF has become the most widely-adopted security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry. This commitment and expertise demonstrated by HITRUST ensures that organizations leveraging the framework are prepared when new regulations and security risks are introduced.
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
ITAR stipulates that regulated technical data – regardless of its form – may be used solely by U.S. persons employed by the U.S. government or a U.S. company. A U.S. person is defined as a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, political asylee, government agency, or corporation. Furthermore, all U.S. companies that manufacture, export, or handle data for items on the USML are required to register with the government and obtain prior authorization to export USML items to a foreign person or government. They must also obtain a specific license exemption to export the data to a U.S. person located outside the U.S., such as to share it with a U.S. employee stationed in another country.
There are several types of export authorizations:
Technical data pertaining to items on the USML is considered to be regulated. Data that is covered under ITAR generally pertains to the design, development, production, manufacture, assembly, operation, repair, testing, maintenance, or modification of defense articles. The law also regulates software that includes system functional design, logic flow, algorithms, application programs, operating systems and support software for design, implementation, test operation, diagnostics, and repair.

EU Privacy Shield
The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.
The Privacy Shield Framework replaced the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework in 2016. BBB EU Privacy Shield offers compliance assistance and independent dispute resolution services to U.S. companies adhering to the Framework. The Framework also provides a set of robust and enforceable protections for the personal data of EU individuals. It provides transparency regarding how participating companies use personal data, strong U.S. government oversight, and increased cooperation with EU data protection authorities (DPAs).
The Privacy Shield Framework offers EU individuals access to multiple avenues to address any concerns regarding participants’ compliance with the Framework. The Framework ensures a continuing level of protection consistent with Privacy Shield Principles when personal data collected under the Framework is transferred to third parties. The Framework also makes it easier for EU individuals to understand and exercise their rights.
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The FedRAMP program has also established a Joint Accreditation Board (JAB) consisting of Chief Information Officers from DoD, DHS, and GSA.
- Increase re-use of existing security assessments across agencies
- Save significant cost, time, and resources – “do once, use many times”
- Improve real-time security visibility
- Provide a uniform approach to risk-based management
- Enhance transparency between government and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs)
- Improve the trustworthiness, reliability, consistency, and quality of the Federal security authorization process
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-171 Protecting Covered Defense Information (CDI) in Nonfederal Systems and Organizations, otherwise known as DFARS, outlines 14 families of security requirements for protecting the confidentiality of CDI you must meet in order to continue providing services and products to large defense organizations such as the Department of Defense.
Within those 14 families, there are 110 controls you must address. Security information and event management (SIEM), multi-factor authentication, and encryption of all data (at rest and in transit) are mandatory, as well as written policies for your security procedures and protocol.
Fpweb data centers follow the standards set by NIST, which is a non-regulatory US Government agency in the Department of Commerce. NIST’s mission is simple yet powerful: support and develop measurement standards and technology in order to improve efficiency, facilitate trade, and enhance quality of life.
There are four reasons why NIST Compliance is important:
- Data centers are measured by their infrastructure and deployment of IT and applications
- NIST works hand-in-hand with the US government, industries, and standards bodies to boost the adoption of cloud computing by the federal government
- NIST develops standards ensuring conformity and enhancing quality of products, supporting interoperability, portability and security requirements
- NIST’s sterling reputation drives trust that the hosting experience for customers is the highest, safest quality possible
By complying with DFARS, every organization that does business with the federal government needs to validate the level of security on its network resources by performing a security audit. DFARS supplies the controls in 800-171 to analyze any gaps that need to be addressed.
The objectives are to:
- Protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) in non federal information systems and organizations
- Ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of CUI
- Provide guidance for organizations to securely process, store, and transmit CUI
