Genesis of the Privacy Framework Development

    It is a challenge to design, operate, or use technologies in ways 
that are mindful of diverse privacy needs in an increasingly connected 
and complex environment. Current and cutting-edge technologies such as 
mobile devices, social media, the Internet of Things and artificial 
intelligence are giving rise to increased concerns about their impacts 
on individuals' privacy. Inside and outside the U.S., there are 
multiple visions for how to address these concerns. Accordingly, the 
U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) is developing a forward-thinking 
approach that supports both business innovation and strong privacy 
protections. As part of this effort, NIST is developing a voluntary 
Privacy Framework to help organizations: Better identify, assess, 
manage, and communicate privacy risks; foster the development of 
innovative approaches to protecting individuals' privacy; and increase 
trust in products and services.\1\ The Privacy Framework is intended to 
be a tool that would assist with enterprise risk management.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In parallel with this effort, the DOC's National 
Telecommunications and Information Administration is developing a 
set of privacy principles in support of a domestic policy approach 
that advances consumer privacy protections while protecting 
prosperity and innovation, in coordination with DOC's International 
Trade Administration to ensure consistency with international policy 
objectives: https://www.ntia.doc.gov/federal-register-notice/2018/request-comments-developing-administration-s-approach-consumer-privacy.
