Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 181 / Thursday, September 18, 2014 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES mitigation, and determine the fulfillment of privacy requirements. 3. Multi-disciplinary approach: Discuss how privacy challenges and objectives might be framed to bring many disciplines (e.g., computer science, economics, social and behavioral sciences, and law disciplines) together to jointly and collaboratively work to both strengthen privacy and support innovation in cyberspace and information systems; discuss how diverse national/cultural perspectives on privacy can be accommodated. 4. Privacy architectures: (a) The Big Data report [2] recommends adoption of a ‘‘responsible use framework’’ [pg. 61] that would provide greater focus on the use of data and hold entities that utilize data accountable for responsible use of the data. Describe an architecture implementing a ‘‘responsible use framework’’ incorporating the three questions above and taking into account issues as: Encoding privacy policies in machine-checkable forms and ensuring their compliance and auditability; managing the collection, retention, and dissemination of sensitive data; and ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive data, while enabling desired uses of them. (b) Describe other privacy architectures that would be effective for the design and implementation of privacy-preserving information systems. (c) Describe technological advances that can change privacy perceptions and how those advances would be incorporated into the ‘‘responsible use framework’’ architecture or other architectures submitted for 4(b). Submission Instructions Page limitation: All submissions must be 20 pages or less. Comments can be submitted by any of the following methods: (a) Email: nprs@nitrd.gov. (b) Fax: (703) 292–9097, Attn: National Privacy Research Strategy. (c) Mail: Attn: National Privacy Research Strategy, NCO, Suite II–405, 4201 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 22230.
