FCE Benefit Administrators, the leading provider of benefits administration for government contractors, are pleased to announce their systems (user workstations, remote user laptops, TAS, Claimscape, and corporate firewalls) have earned Certified status for information security by HITRUST.
HITRUST CSF Certified status demonstrates that the organization’s Technology Division has met key regulations and industry-defined requirements and is appropriately managing risk. This achievement places FCE in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
“The HITRUST CSF has become the information protection framework for the health care industry, and the CSF Assurance program is bringing a new level of effectiveness and efficiency to third-party assurance,” said Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer, HITRUST. “The HITRUST CSF Certification is now the benchmark that organizations required to safeguard PHI are measured against with regards to information protection.”
“Organizations, like ours, are under great pressure to meet complex compliance requirements that include technical and process elements such as HIPAA, NIST, ISO and COBIT,” said Chris Porter, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at FCE Benefit Administrators. “The HITRUST CSF is the gold-standard that needs to be met, and FCE is pleased to be able to demonstrate its commitment by achieving HITRUST CSF Certification.”
