Extended Deadline: Comments on Challenges in Protecting Consumer Data

To allow industry more time to prepare and submit comments, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has extended the deadline for comments on its draft NISTIR 8050 report, focused on cybersecurity challenges in consumer-facing industries. 

The report summarizes the Executive Technical Workshop on Improving Cybersecurity and Consumer Privacy, held in collaboration with Stanford University, which brought together chief technology officers, information officers, and security executives to discuss the challenges their organizations and industries face in implementing advanced cybersecurity and privacy technologies. The NCCoE played a large role in organizing the meeting, and the summary document is posted online.

The updated closing date for comments is July 17, 2015. You may submit comments here.
