The NIST Privacy Framework: Information security strategies for ironclad data privacy

Created by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, the NIST Privacy Framework is a voluntary framework designed to help organizations identify and manage data privacy risks. By complying with the framework’s standards, organizations can better design and communicate their privacy protection activities, stay current with the latest technology trends, and create more effective data privacy solutions.

NIST Privacy Framework compliance includes 5 functions:

  • Identify: Understand which data assets need to be protected and the potential privacy risks to which they’re exposed
  • Govern: Develop an organizational governance structure to understand the organization’s privacy risk management 
  • Control: Develop and implement the appropriate policies and processes to enable individuals to understand, recognize, and manage data privacy risks
  • Communicate: Create and implement the appropriate policies and processes to allow individuals to understand how data is processed and the associated risks to data privacy
  • Protect: Design, implement, and monitor effective data processing and privacy safeguards
