Comments on NISTIR8062 - Multiassociation July 30 2015
The undersigned associations appreciate this opportunity to provide comments to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on draft Internal Report 8062—“Privacy Risk Management for Federal Information Systems” (the “draft NISTIR”). Our organizations, representing leading dynamic and innovative companies across numerous sectors, see great value in the collaborative work between NIST and industry. We have had the opportunity to engage with NIST and provide written input to NIST on a variety of initiatives. We write today to express some strong concerns about the direction of the draft NISTIR, in particular, the unintended consequences that could result from this initiative.
