NIST Cybersecurity Privacy Principles in Plain English

Cybersecurity and privacy are closely related. Since cybersecurity programs often collect, process,
maintain, and use personal information, personal privacy issues must be carefully considered. Great
care must be taken to avoid collecting too much personal information or being too invasive, disclosing
this information unintentionally or involuntarily, or retaining it indefinitely or without authorization.


Your Cybersecurity Program should comply with the following NIST Privacy Principles:

• Minimize the amount of personal information used to manage your cybersecurity incidents.

• Minimize the amount of personal information collected whenever cybersecurity incidents occur.

• Minimize the amount of personal information disclosed whenever cybersecurity incidents occur.

• Minimize the amount of personal information retained whenever cybersecurity incidents occur.

• Respect the personal data-use limits imposed by stakeholders not involved in cybersecurity.

• Consider what kind of personal information may be used to manage cybersecurity incidents.

• Consider what kind of personal information may be collected whenever cybersecurity incidents occur.

• Consider what kind of personal information may be disclosed whenever cybersecurity incidents occur.

• Consider what kind of personal information may be retained whenever cybersecurity incidents occur.

• Ask for consent whenever personal information is used to manage cybersecurity incidents.

• Provide appropriate remedies for those who experience adverse impacts and seek redress.

• Be open, honest, and transparent about your organization’s cybersecurity activities and incidents.

• Provide all the information stakeholders need in order to address cybersecurity incidents.

• Protect the quality of personal data by ensuring that it is accurate, complete, and up-to-date.

• Acknowledge that you’ll be held accountable for protecting the privacy of personal information.
