The National Institute of Standards and Technology is looking for products and expertise to help organizations reliably recover corrupted or destroyed data.
The search is being conducted by NIST’s Data Integrity project, which is part of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence. The project is working to develop ways organizations can prevent or recover from data loss or alteration resulting from malware or human error.
In a Federal Register notice posted Wednesday, NIST says it wants to learn more about ways to deal with lost or corrupted data.
“To address real-world business challenges around data integrity, the resulting example solution will be composed of open-source and commercially available components,” according to the program’s factsheet.
If interested, contact NIST at firstname.lastname@example.org. NIST will accept the responses on a first come, first served basis and will begin “collaborative activities” no earlier than July 1.
