The latest version of the AWS HITRUST Shared Responsibility Matrix is now available to download. Version 1.2 is based on HITRUST MyCSF version 9.4[r2] and was released by HITRUST on April 20, 2022.

AWS worked with HITRUST to update the Shared Responsibility Matrix and to add new controls based on MyCSF v9.4[r2]. You don’t have to assess these additional controls because AWS already has completed HITRUST assessment using version 9.4 in 2021 . You can deploy your environments on AWS and inherit our HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) certification, provided that you use only in-scope services and apply the controls detailed on the HITRUST website.

What this means for our customers

The new AWS HITRUST Shared Responsibility Matrix has been tailored to reflect both the Cross Version ID (CVID) and Baseline Unique ID (BUID) in HITRUST so that you can select the correct control for inheritance even if you’re still using an older version of HITRUST MyCSF for your own assessment.

With the new version, you can also inherit some additional controls based on MyCSF v9.4[r2].

At AWS, we’re committed to helping you achieve and maintain the highest standards of security and compliance. We value your feedback and questions.
