NIST Cybersecurity Framework Will Not Include Privacy Standards Appendix


On January 15, NIST updated the status of its efforts to finalize the voluntary Cybersecurity Framework directed by President Obama’s Executive Order 13636. According to the update, NIST expects to publish the final framework on February 13, 2014, but the initial final version will not include an appendix with specific privacy standards. Citing insufficient support from stakeholders, NIST instead will include an alternative methodology that it believes will better allow organizations to incorporate general privacy principles when implementing a cybersecurity program.
