1320.3(c) to include agency requests or requirements that members of 
the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a

Standards, 12 CFR Part 30, Appendix B and Part 170, Appendix B 
(collectively,

[[Page 15121]]

Security Guidelines), implementing section 501(b), require each entity 
supervised by the OCC (supervised institution) to consider and adopt a 
response program, if appropriate, that specifies actions to be taken

    The Interagency Guidance on Response Programs for Unauthorized 
Customer Information and Customer Notice (Breach Notice Guidance \1\), 
which interprets the Security Guidelines, states that, at a minimum, a 
supervised institution's response program should contain procedures for 
the following:

    \1\ 12 CFR part 30, Appendix B, Supplement A.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (1) Assessing the nature and scope of an incident, and identifying 
what customer information systems and types of customer information 
have been accessed or misused;
    (2) Notifying its primary Federal regulator as soon as possible 
when the supervised institution becomes aware of an incident involving 
unauthorized access to, or use of, sensitive customer information;
    (3) Consistent with the OCC's Suspicious Activity Report 
regulations, notifying appropriate law enforcement authorities, as well 
as filing a timely SAR in situations in which Federal criminal 
violations require immediate attention, such as when a reportable 
violation is ongoing;
    (4) Taking appropriate steps to contain and control the incident in 
an effort to prevent further unauthorized access to, or use of, 
customer information, for example, by monitoring, freezing, or closing 
affected accounts, while preserving records and other evidence; and
    (5) Notifying customers when warranted.
    This collection of information covers the notice provisions in the 
Breach Notice Guidance.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

    Estimated average burden per respondent: 36 hours.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden: 12,384 hours.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized
