With the HITRUST CSF Certified Status, Jiff meets key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive private healthcare information.

CSF Certified status indicates that the organization has met industry-defined requirements and is appropriately managing risk, and places Jiff 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.

“We are honored the Jiff platform has been recognized for meeting the framework for HITRUST CSF Certification. At Jiff, we are dedicated to providing the highest level of data protection and privacy,” said Derek Newell, CEO of Jiff. “Jiff’s platform eases both data privacy and security concerns for employers and employees by providing an environment that keeps employers’ and their employees’ personal data safe and secure.”

“HITRUST has been working with the industry to ensure the appropriate information protection requirements are met when sensitive health information is accessed or stored in a cloud environment. By taking the steps necessary to obtain HITRUST CSF Certified status, Jiff is distinguished as a system that people can count on to keep their information safe,” said Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer, HITRUST.

Companies have more options than ever before to offer employee health and benefits programs designed to cut health care costs and cultivate a happier, healthier workforce. But with these new options come real concerns about employee data privacy and security. Jiff’s enterprise health benefits platform solves this problem by putting a trusted, secure, and independent layer between employers and the personally identifiable health data of their employees.

The Jiff platform has in place technological and physical safeguards to ensure the highest level of security – appropriate for HIPAA protected information – and to prevent a data breach. Data entrusted to Jiff is encrypted through every stage of the platform – in transit and at rest – and stored in a private cloud network. Through focused efforts, such as HITRUST Certification, Jiff is continuously updating these safeguards and seeking new ways to ensure the highest level of data security.
