SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, DHS/TSA proposes to modify and reissue a current DHS system of records notice (SORN) titled, ‘‘DHS/TSA–001 Transportation Security PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Enforcement Record System System of Records.’’ This modification more clearly identifies that this SORN contains records relating to the TSA Insider Threat program. In furtherance of TSA’s responsibility for security in all modes of transportation and to ensure the adequacy of security measures at airports and other transportation facilities pursuant to its establishing legislation, the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), Public Law 107–71, 49 U.S.C. 114(d) and (f), provides authority for TSA to establish its Insider Threat program in order to deter, detect, and mitigate insider threats to TSA’s personnel, operations, information, critical infrastructure, and transportation sectors subject to TSA authorities. For purposes of this TSA system of records, ‘‘insider threats’’ are, or present themselves to be, current or former transportation sector workers (including both TSA and private sector personnel) and individuals employed or otherwise engaged in providing services requiring authorized access to transportation facilities, assets, or infrastructure who intend to cause harm to the transportation domain. This system of records is being modified to: Cover records relating to the TSA’s Insider Threat program; include a new category of individuals and category of records; reflect an approved records retention schedules for records covered by this system; and change existing routine uses. The category of individuals covered under this SORN will be modified to reflect that the system may contain information on both current and former owners, operators, and employees in all modes of transportation for which DHS/TSA has security-related duties; and will also cover individuals who have access to Sensitive Security Information (SSI) and are ‘‘covered persons’’ under the Sensitive Security Information regulation, 49 CFR part 1520.7. The category of records in this SORN will be modified to include place of birth; Government-issued identification; citizenship; results of any law enforcement, criminal history record, or open source checks; employment information and work history; and security and access clearances and background investigation information. This SORN also reflects that the applicable records retention schedules are approved by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). This SORN modifies routine uses ‘‘E’’ and ‘‘F’’ to be in conformity with Office of Management and Budget Memorandum M–17–12. This SORN E:\FR\FM\28AUN1.SGM 28AUN1
