The National Institute of Standards and Technology is probably best known for the cybersecurity guidelines it released in late 2013, but the organization frequently authors reports on critical issues in the technology space. The NIST recently released a draft of one such report designed to aid federal organizations in processing private citizen information. Now entering a public commenting period that will remain open until July 13, the report, “Privacy Risk Management for Federal Information Systems,” seeks to create a universal vocabulary for discussing the challenges of private data processing, while providing modes of thinking that can be applied as information processing continues to evolve.

Naomi Lefkovitz, senior privacy policy adviser at NIST, told Legaltech News the impetus for the report stemmed from a need to be better equipped to deal with the challenge of personal data. In that way the report functions as a reference guide, providing terms and processes that can be applied to research in all related areas.
