We estimate that 815 of these institutions are smaller entities that spend an average of 6 hours reviewing and updating their policies and procedures once per year, or 4,890 hours annually. We estimate that an additional 1,265 larger institutions spend an average of 30 hours to review and update their safeguard policies and procedures, or 37,950 hours each year. Accordingly, we estimate that the annual burden for covered institutions that review and update their safeguard policies and procedures is 42,840 hours. We therefore estimate a total of 2,529 respondents and an annual burden of 91,575 hours associated with the rule’s collection of information requirement. These estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. The safeguard rule does not require the reporting of any information or the filing of any documents with the Commission. The collection of information required by the safeguard rule is mandatory. Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. Please direct your written comments to R. Corey Booth, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, C/O Shirley Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, Virginia 22312 or send an e-mail to: PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov.
