The National Privacy Research Strategy was released on July 1, 2016. The strategy calls for research along a continuum of challenges, from how people understand privacy in different situations and how their privacy needs can be formally specified, to how these needs can be addressed, to how to mitigate and remediate the effects when privacy expectations are violated.

CCC Community Report for a National Privacy Research Strategy

In May 2015, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) released a report “Towards a Privacy Research Roadmap for the Computing Community.” This report, developed by members of the privacy research community, outlines a suggested roadmap for privacy research and was provided to NITRD as input to the National Privacy Research Strategy.
