Join BDO and HITRUST as we look to provide detail over new assurance reporting options for clients security and privacy programs. Your stakeholders require assurances from their business partners, and we must use and rely upon appropriate assurance mechanisms. Join us on a journey to explore why not all assurances are created equal and what strengths and weaknesses exist relative to the assurance approaches and mechanisms that exist in the market today. We will discuss what assurances need to be provided and how to obtain those assurances in the most efficient and effective way possible.
