As part of the President’s Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP), the Administration released the 2016 Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan, which was coordinated by the National Science and Technology Council.
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
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. Read the White House Blog announcing the 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.

During February 18-20, 2015, the NCO/NITRD held a workshop as part of the development of the National Privacy Research Strategy. The workshop’s purpose was to explore privacy needs across the private and public sectors, objectives that could guide federal privacy research, and innovative research directions to preserving and managing privacy in cyberspace.
On September 18, 2014, on behalf of the agencies, the CSIA R&D SSG published a Request for Information on the NPRS. The RFI is posted at https://federalregister.gov/a/2014-22239 or can be downloaded here. Deadline for submission to this RFI was October 17, 2014.
