BJS Confidentiality Pledge Revision Notice, 96521-96523 [2016-31705]

Download as PDF 96521 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 251 / Friday, December 30, 2016 / Notices collection—one for the pilot study and a second for the annual collection to include all law enforcement agencies. Burden estimates were based on sources from the FBI UCR Program, the BJS, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The BJS has recently estimated that approximately 1,400 fatalities attributed to a law enforcement use of force occur annually (Planty, et al., 2015, ArrestRelated Deaths Program: Data Quality Profile, http://www.bjs.gov/ index.cfm?ty=pbdetail&iid=5260). In addition, the CDC estimates the incidences of fatal and nonfatal injury— including those due to legal intervention—from emergency department data. In their piece entitled, ‘‘The real risks during deadly police ¨ shootouts: Accuracy of the naıve shooter,’’ Lewinski, et al. (2015) estimates law enforcement officers miss their target approximately 50 percent of the time at the firing range and was used as a simple estimate for the number of firearm discharges at or in the direction of a person, but did not strike the individual. In addition, the UCR Program collects counts of the number of law enforcement sworn and civilian employees in law enforcement agencies. The table below uses a rate per officer to estimate the anticipated number of reports that could be received within the two pilot phases and an annual collection. Because the nonfatal injury due to legal intervention estimate from the CDC does not provide any overt measure of severity, these injuries are estimated to be as high as 82,283 or as low as 5,546. Based upon these estimates, the FBI is requesting 52,416 burden hours for an annual collection of this data.

Federal statistics provide key information that the Nation uses to measure its performance and make informed choices about budgets, employment, health, investments, taxes, and a host of other significant topics. Most federal surveys are completed on a voluntary basis. Respondents, ranging from businesses to households to institutions, may choose whether or not to provide the requested information. Many of the most valuable federal statistics come from surveys that ask for highly sensitive information such as proprietary business data from companies or particularly personal information or practices from individuals. BJS protects all data collected under its authority under the confidentiality provisions of 42 U.S.C. 3789g. Strong and trusted confidentiality and exclusively statistical use pledges under Title 42 U.S.C. 3789g and similar statutes are effective and necessary in honoring the trust that businesses, individuals, and institutions, by their responses, place in statistical agencies.

These statutes protect such statistical information from administrative, law enforcement, taxation, regulatory, or any other non-statistical use and immunize the information submitted to statistical agencies from legal process. Moreover, many of these statutes carry monetary fines and/or criminal penalties for conviction of a knowing and willful unauthorized disclosure of covered information. Any person violating the confidentiality provisions of 42 U.S.C. 3789g may be punished by a fine of up to $10,000, in addition to any other penalties imposed by law. As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2016 (Pub. L. 114–113) signed on December 17, 2015, the Congress included the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 (codified in relevant part at 6 U.S.C. 151). This act, among other provisions, permits and requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to provide federal civilian agencies’ information technology systems with cybersecurity protection for their Internet traffic. The technology currently used to provide this protection against cyber malware is known as Einstein 3A. Einstein 3A electronically searches internet traffic in and out of federal civilian agencies in real time for malware signatures. When such a signature is found, the internet packets that contain the malware signature are shunted aside for further inspection by DHS personnel. Because it is possible that such packets entering or leaving a statistical agency’s information technology system may contain a small portion of confidential statistical data, statistical agencies can no longer promise their respondents that their responses will be seen only by statistical agency personnel or their agents. However, federal statistical agencies can promise, in accordance with provisions of the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, that such monitoring can be used only to protect information and information systems from cybersecurity risks, thereby, in effect, providing stronger protection to the integrity of the respondents’ submissions. Consequently, with the passage of the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, the federal statistical community has an opportunity to welcome the further protection of its confidential data offered by DHS’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:18 Dec 29, 2016 Jkt 241001 Einstein 3A cybersecurity protection program. The DHS cybersecurity program’s objective is to protect federal civilian information systems from malicious malware attacks. The federal statistical system’s objective is to endeavor to ensure that the DHS Secretary performs those essential duties in a manner that honors the statistical agencies’ statutory promises to the public to protect their confidential data. DHS and the federal statistical system have been successfully engaged in finding a way to balance both objectives and achieve these mutually reinforcing objectives. However, pledges of confidentiality made pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 3789g and similar statutes assure respondents that their data will be seen only by statistical agency personnel or their agents. Because it is possible that DHS personnel could see some portion of those confidential data in the course of examining the suspicious Internet packets identified by Einstein 3A sensors, statistical agencies are revising their confidentiality pledges to reflect this process change. Therefore, BJS is providing this notice to alert the public to these confidentiality pledge revisions in an efficient and coordinated fashion. Below is a listing of BJS’s current Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) OMB numbers and information collection titles and their associated revised confidentiality pledge(s) for the Information Collections whose confidentiality pledges will change to reflect the statutory implementation of DHS’ Einstein 3A monitoring for cybersecurity protection purposes.

Introduction The NRC is granting an exemption from Paragraph B of section III, ‘‘Scope and Contents,’’ of appendix D, ‘‘Design Certification Rule for the AP1000,’’ to part 52 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), and issuing License Amendment No. 56 to COLs, NPF–91 and NPF–92, to the licensee. The exemption is required by Paragraph A.4 of Section VIII, ‘‘Processes for Changes and Departures,’’ appendix D, to 10 CFR part 52 to allow the licensee to depart from Tier 1 information. With the requested amendment, the licensee sought proposed changes that would correct editorial errors in plant-specific Tier 1 information, with corresponding changes to the associated COL Appendix C information, to promote consistency with the Updated Final Safety Analysis Report Tier 2 information. One of the proposed changes to plant-specific Tier 1 information also involves a change to Updated Final Safety Analysis Report Tier 2 information. The proposed amendment also involves a proposed editorial correction to COL Paragraph 2.D.(12)(g)1. Part of the justification for granting the exemption was provided by the review of the amendment. Because the exemption is necessary in order to issue the requested license amendment, the NRC granted the exemption and issued the amendment concurrently, rather than in sequence. This included issuing a combined safety evaluation containing the NRC’s review of both the exemption request and the license amendment. The exemption met all applicable regulatory criteria set forth in 10 CFR 50.12, 10 CFR 52.7, and Section VIII.A.4 of appendix D to 10 CFR part 52. The license amendment was found to be acceptable as well. The combined safety evaluation is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML16244A345. Identical exemption documents (except for referenced unit numbers and license numbers) were issued to the licensee for VEGP Units 3 and 4 (COLs NPF–91 and NPF–92).

BJS Confidentiality Pledge Revision Notice

AGENCY: Bureau of Justice Statistics, Justice.

ACTION: 30-Day notice.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), a component of the 
Office of Justice Programs (OJP) in the U.S. Department of Justice 
(DOJ), is announcing revisions to the confidentiality pledge(s) it 
provides to its respondents. These revisions are required by the 
passage and implementation of provisions of the federal Cybersecurity 
Enhancement Act of 2015, which requires the Secretary of the Department 
of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide Federal civilian agencies' 
information technology systems with cybersecurity protection for their 
Internet traffic. More details on this announcement are presented in 
the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below.

DATES: These revisions become effective on December 30, 2016.

ADDRESSES: Questions about this notice should be addressed to the 
Bureau of Justice Statistics, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. 
Department of Justice, ATTN: Allina Lee, 810 7th Street NW., 
Washington, DC 20151.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Allina Lee by telephone at 202-305-
0765 (this is not a toll-free number); by email at 
Allina.Lee@usdoj.gov; or by mail or courier to the Bureau of Justice 
Statistics, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, 
ATTN: Allina Lee, 810 7th Street NW., Washington, DC 20151. Because of 
delays in the receipt of regular mail related to security screening, 
respondents are encouraged to use electronic communications.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Federal statistics provide key information 
that the Nation uses to measure its performance and make informed 
choices about budgets, employment, health, investments, taxes, and a 
host of other significant topics. Most federal surveys are completed on 
a voluntary basis. Respondents, ranging from businesses to households 
to institutions, may choose whether or not to provide the requested 
information. Many of the most valuable federal statistics come from 
surveys that ask for highly sensitive information such as proprietary 
business data from companies or particularly personal information or 
practices from individuals. BJS protects all data collected under its 
authority under the confidentiality provisions of 42 U.S.C. 3789g. 
Strong and trusted confidentiality and exclusively statistical use 
pledges under Title 42 U.S.C. 3789g and similar statutes are effective 
and necessary in honoring the trust that businesses, individuals, and 
institutions, by their responses, place in statistical agencies.

[[Page 96522]]

    Under statistical confidentiality protection statutes, federal 
statistical agencies make statutory pledges that the information 
respondents provide will be seen only by statistical agency personnel 
or their agents and will be used only for statistical purposes. These 
statutes protect such statistical information from administrative, law 
enforcement, taxation, regulatory, or any other non-statistical use and 
immunize the information submitted to statistical agencies from legal 
process. Moreover, many of these statutes carry monetary fines and/or 
criminal penalties for conviction of a knowing and willful unauthorized 
disclosure of covered information. Any person violating the 
confidentiality provisions of 42 U.S.C. 3789g may be punished by a fine 
of up to $10,000, in addition to any other penalties imposed by law.
    As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2016 
(Pub. L. 114-113) signed on December 17, 2015, the Congress included 
the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 (codified in relevant 
part at 6 U.S.C. 151). This act, among other provisions, permits and 
requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to provide federal civilian 
agencies' information technology systems with cybersecurity protection 
for their Internet traffic. The technology currently used to provide 
this protection against cyber malware is known as Einstein 3A. Einstein 
3A electronically searches internet traffic in and out of federal 
civilian agencies in real time for malware signatures.
    When such a signature is found, the internet packets that contain 
the malware signature are shunted aside for further inspection by DHS 
personnel. Because it is possible that such packets entering or leaving 
a statistical agency's information technology system may contain a 
small portion of confidential statistical data, statistical agencies 
can no longer promise their respondents that their responses will be 
seen only by statistical agency personnel or their agents. However, 
federal statistical agencies can promise, in accordance with provisions 
of the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, that such 
monitoring can be used only to protect information and information 
systems from cybersecurity risks, thereby, in effect, providing 
stronger protection to the integrity of the respondents' submissions.
    Consequently, with the passage of the Federal Cybersecurity 
Enhancement Act of 2015, the federal statistical community has an 
opportunity to welcome the further protection of its confidential data 
offered by DHS' Einstein 3A cybersecurity protection program. The DHS 
cybersecurity program's objective is to protect federal civilian 
information systems from malicious malware attacks. The federal 
statistical system's objective is to endeavor to ensure that the DHS 
Secretary performs those essential duties in a manner that honors the 
statistical agencies' statutory promises to the public to protect their 
confidential data. DHS and the federal statistical system have been 
successfully engaged in finding a way to balance both objectives and 
achieve these mutually reinforcing objectives.
    However, pledges of confidentiality made pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 
3789g and similar statutes assure respondents that their data will be 
seen only by statistical agency personnel or their agents. Because it 
is possible that DHS personnel could see some portion of those 
confidential data in the course of examining the suspicious Internet 
packets identified by Einstein 3A sensors, statistical agencies are 
revising their confidentiality pledges to reflect this process change.
    Therefore, BJS is providing this notice to alert the public to 
these confidentiality pledge revisions in an efficient and coordinated 
fashion. Below is a listing of BJS's current Paperwork Reduction Act 
(PRA) OMB numbers and information collection titles and their 
associated revised confidentiality pledge(s) for the Information 
Collections whose confidentiality pledges will change to reflect the 
statutory implementation of DHS' Einstein 3A monitoring for 
cybersecurity protection purposes.
    The following BJS statistical confidentiality pledge will now apply 
to the Information Collections conducted by BJS and protected under 42 
U.S.C. 3789g, whose PRA OMB numbers and titles are listed below. The 
new lines added to address the new cybersecurity monitoring activities 
are bolded for reference only, and will not be bolded in the pledge 
provided to respondents:
    ``The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is dedicated to 
maintaining the confidentiality of your personally identifiable 
information, and will protect it to the fullest extent under federal 
law. BJS, BJS employees, and BJS data collection agents will use the 
information you provide for statistical purposes only, and will not 
disclose your information in identifiable form without your consent to 
anyone outside of the BJS project team. All data collected under BJS's 
authority are protected under the confidentiality provisions of 42 
U.S.C. 3789g, and any person who violates these provisions may be 
punished by a fine up to $10,000, in addition to any other penalties 
imposed by law. Further, per the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 
(codified in relevant part at 6 U.S.C. 151), federal information 
systems are protected from malicious activities through cybersecurity 
screening of transmitted data. For more information on the federal 
statutes, regulations, and other authorities that govern how BJS, BJS 
employees, and data collection agents use, handle, and protect your 
information, see the BJS Data Protection Guidelines.''

    BJS has also added information about the Cybersecurity Enhancement 
Act and Einstein 3A to the BJS Data Protection Guidelines to provide 
more details to interested respondents about the new cybersecurity 
monitoring requirements. The following text has been added to Section 
V. Information System Security and Privacy Requirements:
    ``The Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 (codified in relevant 
part at 6 U.S.C. 151) required the Department of Homeland Security 
(DHS) to provide cybersecurity protection for federal civilian agency

viruses, malware, and other cybersecurity threats. DHS has implemented 
this requirement by instituting procedures such that, if a potentially

contain the malware signature would be further inspected, pursuant to 
any legal required legal process, to identify and mitigate the 
cybersecurity threat. In accordance with the Act's provisions, DHS 
conducts these cybersecurity screening activities solely to protect 
federal information and information systems from cybersecurity risks. 
OJP has installed DHS's cybersecurity protection software, Einstein 3A, 
on its information technology systems to comply with the Act's 
requirements and to further safeguard the information transmitted to 
and from its systems, including BJS data, from cybersecurity threats 
and vulnerabilities.''
    The Census Bureau collects data on behalf of BJS for the below 
listing of PRA OMB numbers and information collection titles. These
