“In helping to create a government for the 21st Century, the Strategy recognizes that Federal agencies, as good data stewards, must adopt strong privacy, confidentiality, and security safeguards to prevent the improper collection, use, retention or disclosure of personally identifiable information (PII) when developing and delivering such digital services and programs. Services and programs that incorporate digital content, platforms, mobile applications (apps), application programming interfaces (APIs), and other new and emerging technologies must be designed and operated in a manner that fosters trust, accountability, and transparency in how personal information is collected, retained, used, and disclosed through the information’s life cycle.”

The authors of the report worked with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to develop the recommendations. The recommendations touch on a standardized approach for security controls, agency privacy, records management and retention. writes, “The resulting report, Recommendations for Standardized Digital Privacy Controls, was written by members of the CIO Council’s Privacy Committee and explains how privacy controls help enable and promote the Strategy’s data- and customer-centric approach.”

The report is a great resource for the federal government to implement the citizen centric approach of the Digital Government Strategy. The report includes best practices and methods to retain security while implementing components of the Digital Government Strategy. You can read the full report here.
