In our increasingly digital world, data has become one of the most valuable assets for individuals and organizations alike. At the same time, data breaches have become all too common, with consequences that can be devastating. With this growing reliance on data comes the pressing need for cybersecurity and privacy controls to achieve confidentiality.

In response, the NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has worked closely with the industry and tech community to develop two draft NIST Special Publications (SP):

These guides provide recommendations on how to prevent and recover from data breaches, including cybersecurity and privacy considerations to prepare for data breaches and specific technical direction for implementation.

We Want to Hear from You!

The NCCoE is making volumes A-C available as drafts for public comment. Review the drafts and submit comments online by January 24 January 15, 2024.

We welcome your input and look forward to your comments. We invite you to connect with us at or join our Community of Interest to receive news and updates about this project.
