The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) seeks comments on the Preliminary Draft of the NIST Privacy Framework: A Tool for Improving Privacy through Enterprise Risk Management (``Preliminary Draft''). The Preliminary Draft was developed by NIST using information collected through the Request for Information (RFI) that was published in the Federal Register on November 14, 2018, and a series of open public workshops and webinars. NIST developed the Preliminary Draft in collaboration with public and private stakeholders. It is intended for voluntary use to help organizations: Better identify, assess, manage, and communicate privacy risks when designing or deploying systems, products, and services; foster the development of innovative approaches to protecting individuals' privacy; and increase trust in systems, products, and services. The Preliminary Draft is available electronically from the NIST website at: https://www.nist.gov/privacy-framework.
