We’re excited and proud to announce that Microsoft Azure is one of the first hyper-scale cloud computing platforms to become HITRUST CSF Certified.  The HITRUST Certification is the most widely recognized security accreditation in the healthcare industry.  It incorporates healthcare specific security, privacy and regulatory requirements from existing regulations such as HIPAA/HITECH, PCI, ISO 27001 and MARS-E as well as industry best practices.  This certification provides a single framework that is tailored to health organizations to evaluate the Azure environment.
