SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Flock, a premier all-in-one software platform to manage HR, Benefits, and Compliance, has earned certified status of the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) from the Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance. This HITRUST CSF Certification is one of the most widely-adopted security frameworks and shows that Flock upholds its high security standards in maintaining electronic protected health information (ePHI).
Flock today announced that its HRIS and Benefits Administration Solution meets the HITRUST CSF v9.1 Certification Criteria. This achievement places Flock 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.
"By being CSF Certified," as stated by HITRUST, "an organization is communicating to its business partners and other third-party entities (e.g., state or federal agencies) that sensitive information protection is both a necessity and priority, essential security controls are in place, and management is committed to information security."
"In our pursuit of customer data security and HIPAA compliance, the HITRUST ongoing CSF certification allows Flock to adhere to the highest security standards in the healthcare industry, giving us even more confidence in offering our customers the utmost data protection available," said Chirag Bhatt, CTO and Cofounder of Flock (helloflock.com).
Flock provides a comprehensive platform to automate the critical administrative tasks required to onboard and continuously manage employees. The system limits risks and liability, and we make it easier for HR and health insurance brokers/agents alike to be the strategic drivers and champions for their business counterparts.

The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) was born out of the belief that information security should be a core pillar of, rather than an obstacle to, the broad adoption of health information systems and exchanges. HITRUST, in collaboration with healthcare, business, technology and information security leaders, has established the Common Security Framework (CSF), a certifiable framework that can be used by any and all organizations that create, access, store, or exchange personal health and financial information. The CSF is an information security framework that harmonizes the requirements of existing standards and regulations, including federal (HIPAA, HITECH), third party (PCI, COBIT), and government (NIST, FTC). www.hitrustalliance.net.
