New Projects

We’re excited to announce that we are updating the NIST Privacy Framework to Version 1.1 and creating a Joint NIST Frameworks Data Governance Profile!

The NIST Privacy Framework was modeled after the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) so that the two frameworks could be used together more easily. This year, we will be implementing a modest update to Privacy Framework 1.1 to support realignment with the CSF 2.0 update and respond to our stakeholders’ current privacy risk management needs.

Stakeholders have expressed a desire for more support in using NIST frameworks and resources together. Because data governance is the starting point for many organizations seeking the benefits of data while managing privacy cybersecurity, AI, and IoT risks, we intend to develop a joint NIST frameworks Data Governance Profile. A joint Profile offers a means to effectively demonstrate complementary use of NIST resources.
