e1 - Essentials, 1 - Year

The HITRUST e1 Assessment is designed to cover basic Foundational Cybersecurity practices that address the assurance needs of lower-risk organizations. The e1 requires less effort to complete and falls below the level of assurance conveyed by the more rigorous HITRUST i1 and r2 Assessments.

i1 - Implemented, 1-Year

The HITRUST Implemented, 1-Year (i1) Validated Assessment leverages a proven set of HITRUST-curated controls designed to ensure that an organization is exercising Leading Security Practices to implement a strong and broad cybersecurity program. The i1 Assessment falls between the level of assurance conveyed by the more foundational HITRUST e1 Essentials, and the more rigorous r2 Expanded Practices Risk-based Assessments. i1 Rapid Recertification dramatically simplifies the i1 recertification process.

r2 - Risk-Based, 2-Year

The HITRUST r2 Validated Assessment is considered the gold standard for information protection assurances because of the comprehensiveness of control requirements, depth of review, and consistency of oversight. The r2 offers flexible, tailorable, risk-based control selection to meet the most stringent risk and compliance factors. With a proactive Expanded Practices approach to cybersecurity and more requirement statements than an e1 or i1, the r2 Assessment consistently provides the highest level of assurance for organizations with the greatest risk exposure.
