Is privacy a risk for your organization?

The Internet of Things, Big Data, Smart Grid, health IT – new technologies promising to bring great advancements to society and individual quality of life. Notwithstanding their benefits, public awareness about these technologies’ potential impact on individual privacy and related societal values continues to grow. As high-profile data breaches continue to make the news, privacy engineering and risk management are concepts being used more and more commonly. And although risk management in cyber security is well understood, what does cyber risk management mean for privacy protection?

In this webinar, Naomi Lefkovitz, senior privacy policy advisor at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will discuss efforts to develop a privacy risk model and assessment methodology to better manage privacy in information systems.

In this 60 minute webinar, Ms. Lefkovitz will explore:

  • The relationship and the important distinctions between security and privacy
  • How to build a better bridge between organizations’ privacy policy and compliance teams and IT teams
  • The tool the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology is developing to assess and prioritize privacy risk in information systems
