NIST Announces Release of Version 1.0 of the NIST Privacy Framework

Just received an email from NIST:

Dear Colleagues,

We’re thrilled to announce the release of Version 1.0 of the NIST Privacy Framework: A Tool for Improving Privacy through Enterprise Risk Management! This would not have been possible without collaboration and feedback from so many of you at each step along the way – thank you so much. 

NIST Privacy Framework Webinar: Ready, Set, Adopt Version 1.0! - January 29th, 2020 at 1 PM ET
Join this webinar for an in-depth review of the Framework and learn how your organization can adopt this voluntary tool to identify and manage privacy risk and build innovative products and services while protecting individuals’ privacy. For more details and to register, visit the event page.

Implementation Support and New Resources
To support your use of the Privacy Framework, we’ve updated our website with many new resources.
  • Visit the new Privacy Framework Resource Repository to explore crosswalks, common Profiles, guidance, and tools to support implementation. For the launch, we’ve provided mappings to some key NIST guidance, but we encourage you to contribute resources to share with the community.
  • Whether you’re new to the Framework or seeking more information about adoption, see our hypothetical use case Profiles and updated frequently asked questions.
  • We’ve also published a companion roadmap to promote collaboration to address key privacy challenges for organizations and improve future versions of the Framework.
If you have questions about adoption or would like to share feedback about your experience with using the Framework, please contact us at privacyframework@nist.govWe look forward to continued collaboration with you, as the Framework is a living document.

Some light reading for the weekend. :)

My blogs at The AIIM Blog and the AIIM Community blogs

My blog posting has been rather light here of late because I've been blogging fairly regularly at the AIIM blog and the AIIM Community blog. So I thought I'd cross-post those posts here once they've gone live over there. I'm not going to copy them verbatim; rather I'll summarize and then link to the live posts over there.
