Cybersecurity & Privacy Stakeholder Engagement


Stakeholders are a very important force behind NIST’s cybersecurity and privacy programs. NIST counts on developers, providers, and everyday users of cybersecurity and privacy technologies/information to guide our priorities in serving the public and private sectors. Stakeholders also are critical when it comes to decisions about the best methods and formats for delivering our information and services. 

NIST engages in many ways– informal and formal. We participate with others in developing standards, coordinate and conduct joint activities with federal agencies, take part in international initiatives and information sharing, convene special topic forums and workshops, collaborate via research with industry and academia, solicit and receive comments on publications, and listen closely.  Some methods are highlighted below and on program pages.
