U.S. TAG to ISO/PC 317 - Consumer protection: privacy by design for consumer goods and services

The International Standards Organization (ISO) Project Committee 317 is developing a global consumer privacy standard that can be embedded into the design of products and services. The US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) represents American interests in ISO/PC 317. The TAG is comprised of privacy experts from premiere U.S.-based organizations committed to consumer privacy.

OASIS partners with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to administer the US TAG. The chair is Ellen Nadeau of the U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST); vice chairs are Debra Farber of Amazon and Aris Gkoulalas-Divanis of IBM.
