NIST Proposes New Privacy Controls - top government contractors - best government contracting eventTo address the challenges of securing the privacy of citizens’ personal identifiable information, the National Institute of Standards and Technology released a new draft document yesterday that suggests adding privacy controls to the catalog of security controls used to protect federal information and information systems.

According to NIST, the new Privacy Control Catalog would be added as an appendix to the Security Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations, which is a document in the Federal Information Security and Management Act.

“Strong normalized privacy controls are an essential component in the ongoing effort to build measurable privacy compliance,” said NIST senior Internet policy adviser Ari Schwartz. “Certainty in controls and measures can help promote privacy, trust and greater confidence in new standards.”

The privacy controls would help organizations enforce requirements of federal privacy legislation, policies, regulations, directives, standards and guidance.

It would also provide a link between privacy and security controls, demonstrate the applicability of the NIST risk management framework and promote closer cooperation between privacy and security officials within the federal government.

“Privacy and security controls in federal information systems are complementary and mutually reinforcing in trying to achieve the privacy and security objectives of organizations,” said NIST fellow Ron Ross, project leader of the FISMA Implementation Project and Joint Task Force.

In addition to the basic privacy controls in this document, NIST plans to develop assessment procedures to allow organizations to evaluate the effectiveness of the controls on an ongoing basis.
