EPIC, joined by the Liberty Coalition, has submitted comments to the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) on governance topics associated with the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). The NSTIC proposal is part of a series of initiatives driven by the 2009 Cyberspace Policy Review. EPIC’s comments called for a structure that would "include[e] protection of consumer information and implementation of strong privacy practices." EPIC further asked for legislation that will protect sensitive personal information in the Identity Ecosystem. For more information, see EPIC: National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace.
