Topic: The NIST Privacy Framework with the Capability Maturity Model Integrated
The NIST Privacy Framework is a tool for improving privacy through a qualitative approach to enterprise risk management. There are many privacy standards out there, but the market consolidating around one standard will help provide clarity for companies interested in data privacy compliance.
While most privacy professionals have some exposure to the NIST Privacy Framework they have limited exposure to the Capability Maturity Model Integration. CMMI has was developed at Carnegie Melon in 1987 by Dr. Watts Humprey for the US Airforce and is now a dominant standard for project maturity. CMMI numerically measures your privacy program maturity/quality while simultaneously providing a process for continuous improvement.
We will show how CMMI should and can be used to enhance the NIST Privacy Framework to create a “quantifiably measurable and actionable assessment”.
