SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Construction Fall Protection Systems Criteria, Practices, and Training Requirements information collection requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 1926.502 and -.503 that, respectively, require a covered employer to certify safety nets and to develop fall protection plans and to prepare worker training certification records. These standards help to ensure that the employer provides the required fall protection and training. Occupational Safety and Health Act sections 2(b) and 8(c) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(b) and 657(c). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1218–0197. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on February 28, 2017. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on September 30, 2016 (81 FR 67397).

Under 44 U.S.C. 3506(e), and 44 U.S.C. 3501, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is announcing a revision to the confidentiality pledge it provides to its respondents under CIPSEA, the NSF Act of 1950, as amended, and the Privacy Act of 1974. These revisions are required by the passage and implementation of provisions of the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 (H.R. 2029, Division N, Title II, Subtitle B, Sec. 223), which permit and require the Secretary for 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: This revision becomes effective upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In a separate Federal Register notice, NSF is seeking public comment on this confidentiality pledge revision. For Additional Information or Comments: Contact Suzanne H.

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. The overwhelming majority of Federal surveys are conducted on a voluntary basis. Respondents, ranging from businesses to households to institutions, may choose whether 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. Strong and trusted confidentiality and exclusively statistical use pledges under the CIPSEA and similar statistical confidentiality Lhorne on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:47 Feb 06, 2017 Jkt 241001 pledges are effective and necessary in honoring the trust that businesses, individuals, and institutions, by their responses, place in statistical agencies. Under the CIPSEA and similar statistical confidentiality protection statutes, many Federal statistical agencies make statutory pledges that the information respondents provide will be seen only by statistical agency personnel or their sworn agents, and will be used only for statistical purposes. The CIPSEA and similar statutes protect the confidentiality of information that agencies collect solely for statistical purposes and under a pledge of confidentiality. These Acts protect such statistical information from administrative, law enforcement, taxation, regulatory, or any other nonstatistical use and immunize the information submitted to statistical agencies from many legal processes. Moreover, statutes like the CIPSEA carry criminal penalties of a Class E felony (fines up to $250,000, or up to five years in prison, or both) for conviction of a knowing and willful unauthorized disclosure of covered information. As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2016 signed on December 17, 2015, the Congress enacted the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 (H.R. 2029, Division N, Title II, Subtitle B, Sec. 223). This Act, among other provisions, requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to provide Federal civilian agencies’ information technology systems with cybersecurity protection for their Internet traffic. 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 ensure that the DHS Secretary performs those essential duties in a manner that honors the Government’s statutory promises to the public to protect their confidential data. Given that the DHS is not a Federal statistical agency, both DHS and the Federal statistical system have been successfully engaged in finding a way to balance both objectives and achieve these mutually reinforcing objectives. As required by passage of the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, the Federal statistical community will implement DHS’ cybersecurity protection program, called Einstein. The technology currently used to provide this protection against cyber malware electronically searches Internet traffic in and out of Federal civilian agencies in real time for malware signatures. When such a signature is PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 confidential statistical data, statistical agencies can no longer promise their respondents that their responses will be seen only by statistical agency personnel or their sworn agents. However, they 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 security and integrity of the respondents’ submissions. Accordingly, DHS and Federal statistical agencies have developed a Memorandum of Agreement for the installation of Einstein cybersecurity protection technology to monitor their Internet traffic. NSF is providing this notice to alert the public in an efficient and coordinated fashion that it is revising its confidentiality pledge. Below is a listing of the current numbers and information collection titles for those NSF programs whose confidentiality pledges will change to reflect the statutory implementation of DHS’ Einstein monitoring for cybersecurity protection purposes. Therefore, the National Science Foundation is providing this notice to alert the public to these confidentiality pledge revisions in an efficient and coordinated fashion. Table 1 below contains a listing of NSF’s current PRA OMB numbers and information collection titles and their associated revised confidentiality pledges for the Information Collections whose confidentiality pledges will change to reflect the statutory implementations of DHS’ Einstein 3A monitoring for cybersecurity protection purposes.

Pledge Revision Notice

AGENCY: National Science Foundation.

ACTION: Emergency Clearance: Submission for OMB Review; Notice of 
Revision of Confidentiality Pledges under the Confidential Information

[[Page 9598]]

Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (CIPSEA).

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

SUMMARY: Under 44 U.S.C. 3506(e), and 44 U.S.C. 3501, the National 
Science Foundation (NSF) is announcing a revision to the 
confidentiality pledge it provides to its respondents under CIPSEA, the 
NSF Act of 1950, as amended, and the Privacy Act of 1974. These 
revisions are required by the passage and implementation of provisions 
of the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 (H.R. 2029, 
Division N, Title II, Subtitle B, Sec. 223), which permit and require 
the Secretary for 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: This revision becomes effective upon publication of this notice 
in the Federal Register. In a separate Federal Register notice, NSF is 
seeking public comment on this confidentiality pledge revision.
    For Additional Information or Comments: Contact Suzanne H. 
Plimpton, Reports Clearance Officer, National Science Foundation, 4201 
Wilson Boulevard, Suite 1265, Arlington, Virginia 22230; telephone 
(703) 292-7556; or send email to splimpto@nsf.gov. Individuals who use 
a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal 
Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-877-8339 between 8:00 a.m. 
and 8:00 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.

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. The overwhelming majority of Federal 
surveys are conducted on a voluntary basis. Respondents, ranging from 
businesses to households to institutions, may choose whether 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. Strong and trusted 
confidentiality and exclusively statistical use pledges under the 
CIPSEA and similar statistical confidentiality pledges are effective 
and necessary in honoring the trust that businesses, individuals, and 
institutions, by their responses, place in statistical agencies.
    Under the CIPSEA and similar statistical confidentiality protection 
statutes, many Federal statistical agencies make statutory pledges that 
the information respondents provide will be seen only by statistical 
agency personnel or their sworn agents, and will be used only for 
statistical purposes. The CIPSEA and similar statutes protect the 
confidentiality of information that agencies collect solely for 
statistical purposes and under a pledge of confidentiality. These Acts 
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 many 
legal processes. Moreover, statutes like the CIPSEA carry criminal 
penalties of a Class E felony (fines up to $250,000, or up to five 
years in prison, or both) for conviction of a knowing and willful 
unauthorized disclosure of covered information.
    As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2016 
signed on December 17, 2015, the Congress enacted the Federal 
Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 (H.R. 2029, Division N, Title II, 
Subtitle B, Sec. 223). This Act, among other provisions, requires the 
Secretary of Homeland Security to provide Federal civilian agencies' 
information technology systems with cybersecurity protection for their 
Internet traffic. 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 ensure that 
the DHS Secretary performs those essential duties in a manner that 
honors the Government's statutory promises to the public to protect 
their confidential data. Given that the DHS is not a Federal 
statistical agency, both DHS and the Federal statistical system have 
been successfully engaged in finding a way to balance both objectives 
and achieve these mutually reinforcing objectives.
    As required by passage of the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act 
of 2015, the Federal statistical community will implement DHS' 
cybersecurity protection program, called Einstein.
    The technology currently used to provide this protection against 
cyber malware 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 
confidential statistical data, statistical agencies can no longer 
promise their respondents that their responses will be seen only by 
statistical agency personnel or their sworn agents. However, they 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 security and 
integrity of the respondents' submissions.
    Accordingly, DHS and Federal statistical agencies have developed a 
Memorandum of Agreement for the installation of Einstein cybersecurity 
protection technology to monitor their Internet traffic.
    NSF is providing this notice to alert the public in an efficient 
and coordinated fashion that it is revising its confidentiality pledge. 
Below is a listing of the current numbers and information collection 
titles for those NSF programs whose confidentiality pledges will change 
to reflect the statutory implementation of DHS' Einstein monitoring for 
cybersecurity protection purposes.
    Therefore, the National Science Foundation is providing this notice 
to alert the public to these confidentiality pledge revisions in an 
efficient and coordinated fashion. Table 1 below contains a listing of 
NSF's current PRA OMB numbers and information collection titles and 
their associated revised confidentiality pledges for the Information 
Collections whose confidentiality pledges will change to reflect the 
statutory implementations of DHS' Einstein 3A monitoring for 
cybersecurity protection purposes. For the Information Collections 
listed in the table below, NSF statistical confidentiality pledges will 
be modified to include the following sentence, ``Per the Federal 
Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, your data are protected from 
cybersecurity risks through screening of the systems that transmit your 
data.''
