HITRUST De-identification Training @ HITRUST

The Data De-identification Methodology course includes in-depth instruction on the HITRUST De-identification Framework and generally accepted de-identification methods and tools. The course helps provide the knowledge and skills needed by security, privacy, legal, compliance, IT, data science and other professionals to provide oversight for, or otherwise evaluate/assess, an organization’s data de-identification program to help manage risks associated with the use and disclosure of de-identified data sets for secondary purposes. This applies whether data is being shared internally within the organization or externally to third parties.

The course also provides statistical, mathematical and other scientific professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to perform data de-identification. Various methods and tools used in the de-identification of data are covered, with particular emphasis on the Expert Determination method described in the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The curriculum is supported by case studies, interactive workshops, and real-world application of the knowledge learned in the course.

The course is delivered in two parts. Introductory material is delivered at the participant’s convenience via a prerequisite online learning management system, and the remaining material is delivered by an instructor in a classroom setting in Frisco, Texas.


Major topical areas of the course include:

  • Background & scope of data de-identification
  • De-identification concepts and related definitions
  • Re-identification risk measurement and related concepts
  • Analysis of contextual risk for de-identified datasets
  • Data masking & de-identification
  • Risk management & reporting
