All LightEdge data centres now HITRUST certified

ightEdge , a leader in compliant cloud and colocation for more than 25 years , has expanded its HITRUST

L partnership , adding HITRUST certifications for four additional data centres and publishing a HITRUST Shared Responsibility Matrix ( SRM ).

Developed jointly by HITRUST and LightEdge , LightEdge ’ s SRM clearly defines security and privacy responsibilities between LightEdge and its customers , which in turn streamlines processes for risk management programmes . LightEdge is one of only 14 companies globally that have published a HITRUST SRM . This latest addition of four HITRUST certifications means that all 11 LightEdge data centres are now HITRUST certified .
HITRUST was established in 2007 to help mitigate the risks associated with a data breach of personal health information . One of the most widely adopted security frameworks in the healthcare industry , HITRUST certification demonstrates that systems within LightEdge ’ s environment meet the information risk management and compliance requirements to protect healthcare data .
To achieve HITRUST certification , providers must undergo an extremely rigorous process . According to HITRUST , upwards of 80 % of US hospitals and 85 % of US health insurers use the HITRUST approach to help with HIPAA compliance .
Not only does LightEdge offer HITRUST-compliant data centres but it can also help its customers achieve their own HITRUST certifications . LightEdge is one of only 39 organisations worldwide that are part of the HITRUST Inheritance Program , which allows customers to inherit relevant LightEdge controls and put them towards their own HITRUST assessments .
