Show leadership in privacy by adopting the Privacy Framework to support:
The Framework can help you answer the fundamental question, “How are we considering the privacy impacts to individuals as we develop our systems, products, and services?” To account for the unique needs of your organization, use of the Framework is flexible, although it is designed to complement existing business and system development operations. For example, if you already have robust privacy risk management processes, you might use the Core’s five Functions as a streamlined way to analyze and articulate any gaps. Alternatively, if your organization is seeking to establish a privacy program, you can use the Core’s Categories and Subcategories as a reference. For a more in depth look at some of the ways you can use it, see Section 3 of the Framework.
NIST has developed these hypothetical use cases to improve understanding of how to develop Profiles to increase collaboration and dialogue across organizations and support risk-based decisions. If you’d like to share a real implementation success story, contact us.
The Privacy Framework Resource Repository contains resources to support organizations’ use of the Privacy Framework. Resources include crosswalks, common Profiles, guidance, and tools. NIST encourages new contributions and feedback on these resources as part of the ongoing collaborative effort to improve implementation of the Privacy Framework.
