SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Threats from terrorism, espionage, cyber attacks and more traditional crimes continue to jeopardize the well-being of our nation and its citizens while criminals continue to find new and inventive ways to carry out their reprehensible activities. To stay ahead of the threats the FBI continually searches for ways to more effectively understand the danger posed by those who threaten harm. The FBI has available a number of lawfully collected databases that allow it to conduct investigations and analyze intelligence for this purpose. Historically, FBI personnel searched individual databases to extract relevant information and then compared the extract to other available information in order to form a more complete and accurate threat picture. This was a timeconsuming process and led to possible gaps in the collated information. Continued threats to the national security of the United States and criminal events have strengthened the FBI’s resolve to develop more efficient methods to analyze FBI data. The Data Integration and Visualization System, DIVS, will allow authorized system users to more effectively search, integrate, display, maintain, and record relevant information in support of the FBI’s multifaceted mission. DIVS will provide users with the ability to simultaneously conduct searches across several databases, extract information, and present the integrated results in a format that the user may sort and display in various modes. In order to do this, DIVS will contain replications of some databases while providing the ability to perform federated queries across other databases. DIVS will allow users to save their queries as well as create a separate record of relevant identifiers and information. One of the results of DIVS will be a new set of records that offers an enhanced view of information already contained in FBI holdings. DIVS will provide a single user interface that incorporates the rules of behavior for FBI information systems, tools to ensure access controls based on roles and data attributes, entity resolution and appropriate metadata tagging. These tools will help ensure data accuracy and reliability. To enhance the flexibility of the system, DIVS includes a variety of routine uses that the FBI has used successfully in sharing information from its other record systems. The FBI will E:\FR\FM\31AUN1.SGM 31AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 168 / Tuesday, August 31, 2010 / Notices share information learned through DIVS pursuant to the requirements of the Privacy Act and, in the case of its routine uses, when the disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the information was compiled.

Some or all system information may also be duplicated at other locations for purposes of system backup, emergency preparedness, and/or continuity of operations. Additionally, appropriate offices/employees within the Department of Justice that have an official need to know the information contained in DIVS in order to perform their duties, may also be granted direct access to DIVS. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES The categories of individuals covered by this system encompass all individuals who relate in any manner to authorized FBI investigative mission activities, including individuals identified in any of multiple data sets lawfully collected and/or shared with the FBI. These individuals include, but are not limited to subjects, suspects, victims, witnesses, complainants, informants, sources, bystanders, law enforcement personnel, intelligence personnel, other responders, administrative personnel, consultants, 16:33 Aug 30, 2010 Jkt 220001 CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM: DIVS contains replications and extractions of information maintained by the FBI in other databases. This information is replicated or extracted into DIVS in order to provide an enhanced and integrated view of that information. DIVS also provides analytic tools that can be applied across the multiple data sets in order to integrate and visually display, and maintain and record the resultant information. Information concerning individuals may be acquired in connection with and relating to the varied mission responsibilities of the FBI. Depending on the nature and scope of the matter, this information may include, among other things: biographical information (such as name, alias, race, sex, date of birth, place of birth, social security number, driver’s license number, other identification numbers, addresses, telephone numbers, physical description, photographs); biometric information (such as fingerprints); associates and affiliations; employment and business information; financial information; visa and immigration information; travel; criminal and investigative history; and any other information lawfully acquired by the FBI. DIVS contains records regarding authorized system users, including audit log information and records relating to verification or authorization of an individual’s access to one or more databases. This information includes user name, date and time of use, date and time of each searched query, search terms and filters, results that the user accessed, and a user’s permissions and authorizations for particular data at that time. AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM: CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM: VerDate Mar<15>2010 relatives, and associates who are relevant to an investigation. In addition, the categories of individuals covered by this system also include persons who are authorized to access and use DIVS.

Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records

AGENCY: Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice.

ACTION: Notice of a new system of records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), the 
United States Department of Justice (Department), Federal Bureau of 
Investigation (FBI), proposes to establish a new system of records, the 
Data Integration and Visualization System, JUSTICE/FBI-021, to support 
and enhance data search, integration, presentation, and storage 
capabilities in support of the FBI's multifaceted mission.

DATES: In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), the public is 
given a 30-day period in which to comment. Therefore, please submit any 
comments by September 30, 2010.

ADDRESSES: The public, OMB, and Congress are invited to submit any 
comments to the Department of Justice, Attn: Privacy Analyst, Office of 
Privacy and Civil Liberties, U.S. Department of Justice, National Place 
Building, 1331 Pennsylvania Ave, NW., Suite 940, Washington, DC 20530-
0001, or by facsimile at 202-307-0693.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erin Page, Assistant General Counsel, 
Privacy and Civil Liberties Unit, Office of the General Counsel, FBI, 
Washington, DC 20535-0001, telephone 202-324-3000.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Threats from terrorism, espionage, cyber 
attacks and more traditional crimes continue to jeopardize the well-
being of our nation and its citizens while criminals continue to find 
new and inventive ways to carry out their reprehensible activities. To 
stay ahead of the threats the FBI continually searches for ways to more 
effectively understand the danger posed by those who threaten harm. The 
FBI has available a number of lawfully collected databases that allow 
it to conduct investigations and analyze intelligence for this purpose. 
Historically, FBI personnel searched individual databases to extract 
relevant information and then compared the extract to other available 
information in order to form a more complete and accurate threat 
picture. This was a time-consuming process and led to possible gaps in 
the collated information.
    Continued threats to the national security of the United States and 
criminal events have strengthened the FBI's resolve to develop more 
efficient methods to analyze FBI data. The Data Integration and 
Visualization System, DIVS, will allow authorized system users to more 
effectively search, integrate, display, maintain, and record relevant 
information in support of the FBI's multifaceted mission. DIVS will 
provide users with the ability to simultaneously conduct searches 
across several databases, extract information, and present the 
integrated results in a format that the user may sort and display in 
various modes. In order to do this, DIVS will contain replications of 
some databases while providing the ability to perform federated queries 
across other databases. DIVS will allow users to save their queries as 
well as create a separate record of relevant identifiers and 
information. One of the results of DIVS will be a new set of records 
that offers an enhanced view of information already contained in FBI 
holdings.
    DIVS will provide a single user interface that incorporates the 
rules of behavior for FBI information systems, tools to ensure access 
controls based on roles and data attributes, entity resolution and 
appropriate metadata tagging. These tools will help ensure data 
accuracy and reliability.
    To enhance the flexibility of the system, DIVS includes a variety 
of routine uses that the FBI has used successfully in sharing 
information from its other record systems. The FBI will

[[Page 53343]]

share information learned through DIVS pursuant to the requirements of 
the Privacy Act and, in the case of its routine uses, when the 
disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the information was 
compiled.
    In accordance with Privacy Act requirements of 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), 
the Department has provided a report to OMB and to Congress on this new 
system of records.

Some or all system information may also be duplicated at other 
locations for purposes of system backup, emergency preparedness, and/or 
continuity of operations. Additionally, appropriate offices/employees 
within the Department of Justice that have an official need to know the 
information contained in DIVS in order to perform their duties, may 
also be granted direct access to DIVS.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    The categories of individuals covered by this system encompass all 
individuals who relate in any manner to authorized FBI investigative 
mission activities, including individuals identified in any of multiple 
data sets lawfully collected and/or shared with the FBI. These 
individuals include, but are not limited to subjects, suspects, 
victims, witnesses, complainants, informants, sources, bystanders, law 
enforcement personnel, intelligence personnel, other responders, 
administrative personnel, consultants, relatives, and associates who 
are relevant to an investigation.
    In addition, the categories of individuals covered by this system 
also include persons who are authorized to access and use DIVS.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
    DIVS contains replications and extractions of information 
maintained by the FBI in other databases. This information is 
replicated or extracted into DIVS in order to provide an enhanced and 
integrated view of that information. DIVS also provides analytic tools 
that can be applied across the multiple data sets in order to integrate 
and visually display, and maintain and record the resultant 
information. Information concerning individuals may be acquired in 
connection with and relating to the varied mission responsibilities of 
the FBI. Depending on the nature and scope of the matter, this 
information may include, among other things: biographical information 
(such as name, alias, race, sex, date of birth, place of birth, social 
security number, driver's license number, other identification numbers, 
addresses, telephone numbers, physical description, photographs); 
biometric information (such as fingerprints); associates and 
affiliations; employment and business information; financial 
information; visa and immigration information; travel; criminal and 
investigative history; and any other information lawfully acquired by 
the FBI.
    DIVS contains records regarding authorized system users, including 
audit log information and records relating to verification or 
authorization of an individual's access to one or more databases. This 
information includes user name, date and time of use, date and time of 
each searched query, search terms and filters, results that the user 
accessed, and a user's permissions and authorizations for particular 
data at that time.

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:
    General authority for FBI mission activities includes: 28 U.S.C., 
Chapter 33, particularly sections 533 and 534; the Uniting and 
Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to 
Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (USA PATRIOT Act), Public 
Law 107-56, 115 Stat. 272; the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism 
Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA), Public Law 108-458, 118 Stat. 3742; the 
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA), Public Law 95-
511, 92 Stat. 1783 (50 U.S.C., Chapter 36); E.O. 13356; E.O. 13388; 28 
CFR 0.85; and Attorney General's Guidelines for Domestic FBI 
Operations. Supplemental authorities relating to particular mission 
activities are found in numerous other Federal statutes, executive 
orders, Federal regulations, and other Executive Branch directives.

PURPOSE(S):
    The purpose of DIVS is to strengthen and improve the methods by 
which the FBI searches for and analyzes information in support of its 
multifaceted mission responsibilities to protect the nation against 
terrorism and espionage and investigate criminal matters. DIVS will 
provide users with the ability simultaneously to conduct searches 
across multiple databases (some of which are ingested directly into and 
exist in DIVS and others of which are searched via DIVS's federated 
query capability), extract and integrate information, and present the 
results in a format that the user may sort and display in various 
modes. DIVS also provides analytic tools that can be applied across the 
multiple data sets in order to integrate and visually display, 
maintain, and record the resultant information.
