Pursuant to Presidential Policy Directive (PPD)—21 (February 2013), each sector is assigned a Sector Specific Agency (SSA) to oversee Federal interaction with the array of sector security partners, both public and private. An SSA is responsible for leading a unified public-private sector effort to develop, coordinate, and implement a comprehensive physical, human, and cybersecurity strategy for its assigned sector. SOPD executes the SSA responsibilities for the six CIKR sectors assigned to IP: Chemical; Commercial Facilities; Critical Manufacturing; Dams; Emergency Services; and Nuclear Reactors, Materials, and Waste (Nuclear). The mission of SOPD is to enhance the resiliency of the Nation by leading the unified public-private sector effort to ensure its assigned CIKR are prepared, more secure, and safer from terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and other incidents. To achieve this mission, SOPD leverages the resources and knowledge of its CIKR sectors to develop and apply security initiatives that result in significant, measurable benefits to the Nation. Each SOPD branch builds sustainable partnerships with its public and private sector stakeholders to enable more effective sector coordination, information sharing, and program development and implementation. These partnerships are sustained through the Sector Partnership Model, described in the NIPP 2013 pages 10–12. Information sharing is a key component of the NIPP Partnership Model, and DRS sponsored conferences are one mechanism for information sharing. To facilitate conference planning and organization, SOPD established an event registration tool for use by all of its branches. The information collection is voluntary and is used by the SSAs within the SOPD. The six SSAs within SOPD use this information to register public and private sector stakeholders for meetings hosted by the SSA. SOPD will use the information collected to reserve space at a meeting for the registrant; contact the registrant with a reminder about the event; develop meeting materials for attendees; determine key topics of interest; and efficiently generate attendee and speaker nametags. Additionally, it will allow SOPD to have a better understanding of the organizations participating in the CIKR E:\FR\FM\02MYN1.SGM 02MYN1 25138 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 85 / Friday, May 2, 2014 / Notices protection partnership events.

The committee will examine the cybersecurity implications of the Internet of Things, within the context of national security and emergency preparedness. Finally, NSTAC members will deliberate and vote on the NSTAC Information Technology Mobilization Scoping Report. The NSTAC will meet in a closed session to hear a classified briefing regarding cybersecurity threats and to discuss future studies based on Government’s security priorities and perceived vulnerabilities. Basis for Closure: In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552b(c), Government in the Sunshine Act, it has been determined that two agenda items require closure as the disclosure of the information would not be in the public interest. The first of these agenda items, the classified briefing, will provide members with context on nation state capabilities and strategic threats. Such threats target national communications infrastructure and impact industry’s long-term competitiveness and growth, as well as the Government’s ability to mitigate threats. Disclosure of these threats would provide criminals who wish to intrude into commercial and Government networks with information on potential vulnerabilities and mitigation techniques, also weakening existing cybersecurity defense tactics. This briefing will be classified at the top secret level, thereby exempting disclosure of the content by statute. Therefore, this portion of the meeting is E:\FR\FM\02MYN1.SGM 02MYN1
