Federal 100: Naomi Lefkovitz

 

Name: Naomi Lefkovitz
Title: Senior Privacy Policy Advisor
Agency: National Institute of Standards and Technology

The privacy keeper. Lefkovitz promotes the development of trustworthy systems that protect individuals’ privacy and civil liberties. In 2017, she published a NIST Internal Report that introduces a systems engineering approach to privacy, including a novel privacy risk model. Last year, she also contributed to multiple international privacy engineering standards and orchestrated the addition of privacy guidance to NIST’s Digital Identity Guidelines. Her work will enable organizations to engineer privacy into their systems and move beyond a check-the-box compliance exercise to a risk-based approach that parallels enterprise information security programs.
