Atlasity Announces Support for the NIST Privacy Framework Version 1.0

The NIST Privacy Framework: A Tool for Improving Privacy through Enterprise Risk Management (Privacy Framework or Framework) is a voluntary tool intended to help organizations identify and manage privacy risk so that they can build innovative products and services while protecting individuals’ privacy. The Framework enables organizations to communicate and prioritize their privacy protection activities and outcomes to address diverse privacy needs, develop more effective solutions that can lead to better outcomes for individuals and organizations, and stay current with technology trends, such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. The Privacy Framework is designed to be compatible with existing domestic and international legal and regulatory regimes and usable by any type of organization to enable widespread adoption.

It is a challenge to design, operate, or use technologies in ways that are mindful of diverse privacy needs in an increasingly connected and complex environment. Cutting-edge technologies such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence are raising further concerns about their impacts on individuals’ privacy. Inside and outside the U.S., there are multiplying visions for how to address these challenges. Deriving benefits from data while simultaneously managing risks to individuals’ privacy is not well-suited to one-size-fits-all solutions. Accordingly, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing a voluntary privacy framework, in collaboration with private and public sector stakeholders, to help organizations with:

  • Building customer trust by supporting ethical decision-making in product and service design or deployment that optimizes beneficial uses of data while minimizing adverse consequences for individuals’ privacy and society as a whole;

  • Fulfilling current compliance obligations, as well as future-proofing products and services to meet these obligations in a changing technological and policy environment; and

  • Facilitating communication about privacy practices with customers, assessors, and regulators.
