HITRUST RightStart (BTS): Audit logging & monitoring

Tyler "Commish" Dornenburg and Hoala Greevy

With the exception of Sundays, we’ve been pushing hard on HITRUST every day in 2019 to date.

Yesterday was no exception: We got into the office early again to crank on HITRUST before the busy Monday meetings began.

This post is what it’s like behind the scenes (BTS) for a startup participating in the HITRUST RightStart program.

Audit Logging & Monitoring

I spent most of my HITRUST activity yesterday in Section 12, Audit Logging & Monitoring.

The section has 28 controls within it.

Here’s what I worked on within Audit Logging & Monitoring:

  • Audit records (Records in scope vs records not in scope)
  • Audit logging of privileged user activity
  • Audit log retention policy
  • Audit log Availability

Paubox Monday (BTS)

Peter Kirsheman, Director of Customer Success

It was a welcomed challenge yesterday to hit our self-imposed HITRUST quota requirements.

For starters, we welcomed our new Director of Customer Success, Peter Kirsheman, at 9am. Welcome Pete! Everyone loved the energy and enthusiasm Pete brought on day one.

Then we held our weekly staff meeting at 10am.

By 11:23am, I arrvied early at Bun Mee on Market Street for an 11:30am lunch with Scott Regenstein from Optum Technology.

I arrived back in the office by 12:45pm and put in another hour on HITRUST before my monthly 2pm SaaS sales mentorship meeting with Ryan Williams of SalesCollider.

Mind you, I’m constantly (re)fueling on caffeine at each opportunity throughout the day.

By 4:30pm, we met our daily HITRUST quota on completed controls.

Tyler “Commish” Dornenburg talked me into joining ClassPass so we left the office before 5pm.

About an hour later, I did my first Kettlebell class at Swing Kettlebell School. My quads promptly got thrashed.

Back in the office again early this morning, gait lurching, ready to keep cranking on HITRUST.
