The Privacy Workforce Public Working Group (PWWG) provides a forum for participants from the general public, including private industry, the public sector, academia, and civil society, to create the content of the NIST Privacy Workforce Taxonomy. The PWWG will create Task, Knowledge, and Skill (TKS) Statements aligned with the NIST Privacy Framework and the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity.
The PWWG is led by co-chairs representing different sectors. The four current co-chairs are:
Mary Chaney, Esq., CISSP, CIPP
Director of Information Security and Privacy
Esperion Therapeutics, Inc
Founder & CEO
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Trevor Hughes, CIPP
President & CEO
International Association of Privacy Professionals
The PWWG is comprised of two short-term Project Teams, which meet independently and report out at PWWG meetings. The Project Teams are responsible for creating TKS Statements aligned with a specific Category (and its associated Subcategories) in the Privacy Framework Core. When a Project Team has completed its work product deliverable, it dissolves and replaced with a new Project Team assigned to a new Privacy Framework Category. More details about the PWWG purpose, organizational structure, administrative details, and roles and responsibilities, can be found in the PWWG Charter.
Meetings: The full PWWG meets via the Microsoft Teams platform every second Wednesday of the month from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET.
