NIST recruiting new members for two advisory panels

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is looking for new members for two advisory groups that might be of interest to the readers of Government Security News: the Information Security and Privacy Advisory Board (ISPAB) and the Advisory Committee on Earthquake Hazards Reduction (ACEHR).

The objective of the ISPAB is to identify emerging managerial, technical, administrative and physical safeguard issues relative to information security and privacy, according to a NIST announcement published on November 8. The panel advises NIST’s leadership, the secretary of commerce and the director of the Officde of Management and Budget (OMB) on these matters.

The panel is comprised of 12 members – four from commercial industry (at least one of whom should work for a small or medium sized business); four from the information technology and related disciplines, but who are not employed by a producer of information technology; and four employees of the federal government (at least one of whom works for the National Security Agency.)

“Nominees should have specific experience related to information security or privacy issues, particularly as they pertain to Federal information technology,” says the NIST notice.

The agency is also recruiting new members for the Advisory Committee on Earthquake Hazards Reduction, which assesses trends and developments in the science and engineering of earthquake hazards reduction, effectiveness of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program in carrying out the activities…”

This panel has no less than 11 and no more than 17 members, each serving for a three-year term.

“Members will be drawn from industry and other communities having an interest in the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program, such as, but not limited to, research and academic institutions, industry standards development organizations, state and local government bodies, and financial communities, who are qualified to provide advice on earthquake hazards reduction and represent all related scientific, architectural, and engineering disciplines,” explains the NIST notice.
