ISO and U.S. NIST Focus on Privacy by Design

May 15, 2018, Global Data Review

Susan Cassidy is quoted in a Global Data Review article regarding the focus on privacy by design by the International Organization for Standardization and the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology. Cassidy says that the anecdotal evidence she has from speaking to her private sector clients is that they are increasingly considering NIST guidelines, because “privacy is becoming a worldwide issue." According to Cassidy, “[The NIST guidelines] aren’t mandatory on the commercial side, they are currently considered by many a best practice, but as a best practice becomes increasingly adopted it possibly could become a standard of care." She adds that the updates to the RMF is the latest sign that NIST is increasingly angling its guidance at private companies.
