120 AWS services achieve HITRUST certification

We’re excited to announce that 120 Amazon Web Services (AWS) services are certified for the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) for the 2020 cycle.

The full list of AWS services that were audited by a third-party assessor and certified under HITRUST CSF is available on our Services in Scope by Compliance Program page. You can view and download our HITRUST CSF certification from AWS Artifact.

AWS HITRUST CSF certification is available for customer inheritance

You don’t have to assess the inherited controls, because AWS already has! You can deploy environments onto AWS and inherit our HITRUST CSF certification provided that you use only in-scope services and apply the controls detailed on the HITRUST website that you are responsible for implementing.

The HITRUST certification allows you, as an AWS customer, to tailor your security control baselines to a variety of factors including, but not limited to, regulatory requirements and organization type. The HITRUST CSF is widely adopted by leading organizations in a variety of industries in their approach to security and privacy. Visit the HITRUST website for more information.

As always, we value your feedback and questions and are committed to helping you achieve and maintain the highest standard of security and compliance. Feel free to contact the team through AWS Compliance Contact Us. If you have feedback about this post, submit comments in the Comments section below.
