CAVULUS ACHIEVES HITRUST CSF® CERTIFICATION TO FURTHER MITIGATE RISK IN THIRD-PARTY PRIVACY, SECURITY, AND COMPLIANCE
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C., June 2, 2021 -- Cavulus, a leading provider of Medicare Advantage member acquisition, enrollment management, and retention solutions, today announced that their Medicare Advantage Platform (Cavulus MAP™), has earned "Certified" status from HITRUST.
HITRUST CSF Certified status demonstrates that the organization's Medicare Advantage Platform has met key regulations and industry-defined requirements and is appropriately managing risk. This achievement places Cavulus 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.
CEO Patrick Phillips explains: "We've been focused on Medicare Advantage since our inception so critical aspects such as PHI, HIPAA, and IT security have always been a top priority. It was a natural progression to complete the exacting process of HITRUST certification to further demonstrate our commitment to security and privacy to both our clients and Medicare Advantage beneficiaries."
Based on regulations set forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Medicare Advantage Organizations are responsible for third parties that they engage for software or services. This requires a high degree of trust in a partner's IT security safeguards. "Obtaining the certification eliminates the need for Cavulus clients to conduct time-consuming and costly audits of the Cavulus information security program" says Cavulus Senior Cybersecurity Engineer, Kevin Wentland. "It's a clear indication of our prioritization of privacy and security measures".
"In today's ever-changing threat landscape, HITRUST is continually innovating to find new and creative approaches to address challenges," said Jeremy Huval, Chief Innovation Officer, HITRUST. "Cavulus's HITRUST CSF Certification is evidence that they are at the forefront of industry best practices for information risk management and compliance."
