For more than two decades, the Internet and associated information technologies have driven unprecedented innovation, economic value, and improvement in social services. Many of these benefits are fueled by data about individuals that flow through a complex ecosystem. As a result, individuals may not be able to understand the potential consequences for their privacy as they interact with systems, products, and services.  growth. Following a transparent, consensus-based process including both private and public stakeholders to produce this voluntary tool, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published this Privacy Framework: A Tool for Improving Privacy through Enterprise Risk Management (Privacy Framework), to enable better privacy engineering practices that support privacy by design concepts and help organizations protect individuals’ privacy.

How NIST Protects Privacy in an Ever-Changing Compliance Landscape

February 16, 2021 | Virtual (On-Demand Only)

Naomi Lefkovitz

To help with the growing discussion and focus on privacy by customers and businesses alike, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) January 2020 released the NIST Privacy Framework Version 1.0, a framework to help companies achieve their privacy goals, including managing new privacy regulations, while working seamlessly with the widely used NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The one-two privacy-security punch is designed to be complementary in order to assist organizations in managing the high-wire act of balancing privacy and security in the digital age. This approach allows companies to reevaluate continually and adjust to new risks to drive data privacy excellence and heightened security policies across the data privacy and security ecosystem. This discussion centers on vital areas related to implementation of the framework and what it means for businesses seeking to assess their own privacy posture or those of its training partners.

NIST Privacy Framework: A Healthcare Guide
Nakia Grayson

The NIST Privacy Framework is designed to help organizations:

  • Identify, assess, manage, and communicate privacy risks
  • Develop innovative approaches to protect individuals’ privacy
  • Increase trust in products and services
  • Have a tool that would assist with enterprise privacy risk management

Process-oriented privacy principles (such as the Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs)) are an important component of an overall privacy strategy, but on their own have not achieved consistent and measurable results in privacy protection. In the security field, risk management models, along with technical standards and best practices, are key components of improving security. The NIST Privacy Framework applies successful security methodology, with clearly stated objectives and measurable outcomes, to the protection of privacy.
