NIST Unveils New Project to Advance Privacy Framework for Public Stakeholders

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has launched a new project that aims to develop a privacy framework providing organizations access to technologies while ensuring data privacy.

NIST said Tuesday the proposed framework is an enterprise-level avenue that calls for organizations to propose a method for adopting privacy protection mechanisms, and to provide conceptual tools that describe how to make use of these platforms.

NIST will hold discussions with stakeholders regarding data privacy during a public workshop on Oct. 16th in Austin, Texas. The workshop will coincide with the International Association of Privacy Professionals’ Privacy. Security. Risk. 2018 conference.
