Naomi Lefkovitz, senior privacy policy adviser at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, has outlined the potential impact of the agency’s privacy risk management framework on the government’s overall cybersecurity effort, FierceGovernmentIT reported Monday.

Lefkovitz told Molly Bernhart Walker in an interview that the recently released draft report on the framework provides a privacy engineering approach to address the risk to data in federal information technology systems.

“[We] appreciate that privacy is a complex and evolving area, and therefore, [to] begin the conversation and socialize the concept is easier to do with a report than to come out with a special publication,” Lefkovitz said.

She added that the framework also supports other programs such as the Cybersecurity Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure and the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace.
