The workshop, which will be held in San Jose, California, September 15-16, “will consider draft privacy engineering definitions and concepts” that will eventually be part of a NIST report on privacy engineering.

NIST held a similar workshop earlier this year at its Gaithersburg, Maryland, headquarters, which started the process of finding and developing “technical standards and best practices for the protection of individuals’ privacy or civil liberties.” A summary posted on NIST’s website details the findings and outcomes from that first workshop.
