Title of Talk: No Passport Required: NIST’s International Cybersecurity and Privacy Work, Explained…


NIST’s cybersecurity and privacy priorities and approaches are developed to emphasize the global collaborative context of today’s borderless world economies. As a result of widespread international use, multiple translations and adaptations of NIST cybersecurity and privacy resources now exist; this solid foundation is continuing to expand NIST’s impact as our opportunities for engagement and collaboration grow. 

This informative presentation will focus on how NIST engages internationally on the cybersecurity and privacy front and will feature examples of bilateral and multilateral engagement, translations and adaptations of NIST resources, and NIST’s contributions to international standards development. Attendees will also hear success stories and learn how NIST resources have been used to help improve cybersecurity globally.

Keywords: cybersecurity, privacy, international engagement
