• NITRD Coordination Areas

    The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's member agencies coordinate their NITRD research activities and plans by Program Component Areas (PCAs) or program focus areas. For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities such as testbeds, workshops, and cooperative solicitations.

Overview

The Privacy R&D IWG coordinates the multidisciplinary research and development conducted by NITRD agencies that seek to produce knowledge and technologies that identify and mitigate emerging risks to our privacy, and that enables individuals, companies, and the government to benefit from technological advancements while being able to effectively balance the resulting benefits with resulting risks to privacy. The research and development includes, but is not limited to, characterizing privacy expectations, understanding privacy violations, engineering privacy-protecting systems, recovering from privacy violations, and the impact of privacy on public policy and of public policy on privacy.

Overview

"...On July 1, NITRD released the National Privacy Research Strategy. Research agencies across government participated in the development of the strategy, reviewing existing Federal research activities in privacy-enhancing technologies, soliciting inputs from the private sector, and identifying priorities for privacy research funded by the Federal Government. The National Privacy Research 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 more
