Aug 9, 2020


Welcome to 5 Fold Agency, a leading provider of consulting and analytical services in the business and consumer services industry. In this article, we will explore how Lever Interactive, a client of ours, achieved the prestigious HITRUST Risk-based, 2-year Certification.

What is HITRUST?

HITRUST is a widely recognized security framework that helps organizations effectively manage risks and ensure compliance with various regulations. The certification is a testament to an organization's commitment to data security and risk management.

The Journey to Certification

Lever Interactive partnered with 5 Fold Agency to embark on the HITRUST certification journey. Our team of experienced consultants worked closely with Lever Interactive's internal stakeholders to identify and address any gaps in their security controls and policies.

Gap Analysis and Remediation

As part of the certification process, we conducted a thorough gap analysis to assess Lever Interactive's current security posture. Our experts meticulously reviewed their existing policies and practices and identified areas that required improvement.

Based on the gap analysis findings, we developed a comprehensive remediation plan. This plan involved implementing industry best practices, enhancing data protection measures, and establishing robust incident response procedures.

HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) Implementation

In close collaboration with Lever Interactive, we guided them through the implementation of the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF). The CSF provides a framework of controls and requirements that organizations must meet to achieve HITRUST certification.

Our consultants worked tirelessly to ensure that Lever Interactive's security controls aligned with the CSF requirements. We helped them establish policies, conduct risk assessments, and implement technical safeguards to protect sensitive data.

Auditing and Attestation

Once Lever Interactive completed the necessary improvements and implemented the CSF controls, we facilitated an external audit to validate their compliance. Our team collaborated with an independent audit firm to conduct a thorough assessment of their security controls and processes.

The audit process involved reviewing documentation, interviewing key personnel, and performing technical assessments. Lever Interactive's dedication to security and our expert guidance helped them pass the audit with flying colors.

The Benefits of HITRUST Certification

Achieving HITRUST certification provides Lever Interactive with several significant benefits:
