Share this post

We are excited to announce that Azure Databricks is now certified for the HITRUST Common Security Framework (HITRUST CSF®).

Azure Databricks is already trusted by organizations such as Electrolux, Shell, renewables.AI, and Devon Energy for their business-critical use cases. The HITRUST CSF certification provides customers the assurance that Azure Databricks meets a level of security and risk controls to support their regulatory requirements and specific industry use cases. The HITRUST CSF is widely adopted across a variety of industries by organizations who are modernizing their approach to information security and privacy.

The HITRUST CSF is a certifiable framework that can be leveraged by organizations to comply with ISO, SOC 2, NIST, and HIPAA information security requirements. The HITRUST CSF is already widely adopted across a variety of industries by organizations who are modernizing their approach to information security and privacy.

For example, the HITRUST CSF certification can be used to measure and attest to the effectiveness of an organization’s own internal security and compliance efforts and to evaluate the security and risk-management efforts of its supply chain and third-party vendors. A growing number of healthcare organizations require their business associates to obtain CSF Certification in order to demonstrate effective security and privacy practices to meet healthcare industry requirements. HITRUST CSF has supported New York State Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial Services Companies (23 NYCRR 500) since 2018. Increasingly, Fintech companies are adopting HITRUST CSF to demonstrate the effectiveness of internal security and compliance efforts and to evaluate third-party vendor efforts. HITRUST CSF certification also provides startups a common approach to information risk management and compliance for appropriate security and privacy oversight. This translates to lower risk for customers.
