19 Aug NIST Addresses Privacy Concerns in Draft for US Agencies
The fifth draft of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) “Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations” has addressed the topic of privacy for the first time, expanding its scope to cover IoT and related technology.
The report noted that the US has to be more proactive and systematic in its approach to cyber deterrence. It also puts privacy into focus instead of just being an appendix, stating that ultimately the objective is to make information systems more resistant, resilient, and survivable, while mitigating damage from attacks at the same time.
The 500-page document also included information on practical and philosophical approaches to privacy that can help system admins address privacy and security concerns.
