Stocks in this article: KTOS

SAN DIEGO, April 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that its SecureInfo cybersecurity group has been designated by the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) as a Common Security Framework (CSF) Assessor. The HITRUST CSF is the healthcare industry's widely adopted cybersecurity framework that reconciles and harmonizes the requirements of existing standards and regulations, including healthcare (HIPAA, HITECH), third party (PCI, COBIT) and government (NIST, FTC).

The healthcare industry is experiencing a rapid rise in risk for data breaches, the theft of patient health data, and increasingly complex regulatory conditions. In this intense environment, Kratos SecureInfo has been approved by the HITRUST Alliance to perform Common Security Framework readiness assessments, remediation and certification work to help healthcare organizations ensure security, privacy and compliance.

HITRUST and its supporting resources, programs and services are aimed at moving the healthcare industry forward with respect to security controls. CSF Assessors such as Kratos' SecureInfo are the only organizations approved by HITRUST to deliver services under the HITRUST CSF Assurance program. Prior to becoming a CSF Assessor, Kratos' SecureInfo went through an extensive due diligence process to demonstrate a strong information security practice and leadership.

"SecureInfo's deep expertise in physical, operational and cybersecurity, combined with its successful track record in securing cloud environments, make them an ideal fit for the HITRUST program," said Ken Vander Wal, HITRUST's Chief Compliance Officer. "We are gratified to have Kratos' SecureInfo as a CSF Assessor to help healthcare organizations with the process of adopting and using the CSF's requirements for protecting information."

Kratos' SecureInfo works with healthcare providers, payors, and their business associates to help manage IT risk and improve their cybersecurity posture. Each assessment is customized to the unique needs of the client and combines the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements and industry best practices. Deliverables include a comprehensive finding and recommendations report and a full presentation of the results.
