The National Institute of Standards and Technology is seeking public comments on a draft report that contains recommendations on how to protect consumer data.

The report was developed with insights gained from a February 12 workshop the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence helped to organize in order to discuss the cyber and privacy challenges facing organizations at present, NIST said Thursday.

“We’d like to hear from workshop participants and those who couldn’t be there to help us develop and prioritize future NIST cybersecurity projects,” said Donna Dodson, chief cybersecurity adviser for NIST.

Participants such as chief technology officers, information officers and security executives agreed on several potential methods to bolster cybersecurity in the retail, hospitality and healthcare sectors that handle consumer and patient information.

Comment submissions will close on May 17.
