FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ricky Morgan, 866–844–8163, IPGatewayHelpDesk@hq.dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Homeland Security Presidential Directive-7, the Presidential Policy Directive-21, and the National Infrastructure Protection Plan highlight the need for a centrally managed repository of infrastructure attributes capable of assessing risks and facilitating data sharing. To support this mission need, the DHS CISA ISD has developed a data collection system that contains several capabilities which support the homeland security mission in the area of critical infrastructure (CI) protection. Protective Security Advisors (PSAs) and Cyber Security Advisors (CSAs) conduct voluntary assessments on CI facilities. These assessments are webbased and are used to collect an organization’s basic, high-level information, and its dependencies. This data is then used to determine a Protective Measures Index (PMI) and a Resilience Measures Index (RMI) for the assessed organization. This information allows an organization to see how it compares to other organizations within the same sector as well as allows them to see how adjusting certain aspects E:\FR\FM\10JYN1.SGM 10JYN1 jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 132 / Wednesday, July 10, 2019 / Notices would change their score. This allows the organization to then determine where best to allocate funding and perform other high level decision making processes pertaining to the security and resiliency of the organization. The information will be gathered by site visits, arranged between the organization owners and DHS PSAs or CSAs. The PSA or CSA will then visit the site and perform the assessment, as requested. They then return to complete the vulnerability assessment and input the data into the system where the data is then accessible to system users. Once available, the organization and other relevant system users can then review the data and use it for planning, risk identification, mitigation and decision making. All data is captured electronically by the PSA, CSA or by the organization as a self-assessment. The vulnerability assessments are voluntary but are required in order for the organization to receive an evaluation of their security posture. After assessments are input into the system, the user is prompted to participate in a feedback questionnaire. Every user is prompted to participate in the Post Assessment questionnaire after entering an assessment. Participation in the Post Assessment questionnaire is voluntary. The Post Assessment Questionnaires are designed to capture feedback about a vulnerability assessment and the system. There are three different questionnaires correlated and prompted after entering a particular assessment into the database. The results are used internally within DHS to make programmatic improvements. The collection of information uses automated electronic vulnerability assessments and questionnaires. The vulnerability assessments and questionnaires are electronic in nature and include questions that measure the security, resiliency and dependencies of an organization. The vulnerability assessments are arranged at the request of an organization and are then scheduled and performed by a PSA or CSA. The changes to the collection since the previous OMB approval include: Updating the title of the collection, adding three customer feedback questionnaires, increase in burden estimates and costs. The three questionnaires were added to the collection to provide user feedback on the content and functionality of the system. The addition of the questionnaires have increased the burden estimates by $3,861. The annual burden cost for the collection has increased by $121,591, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Jul 09, 2019 Jkt 247001 from $1,786,166 to $1,907,757, due to the addition of the Post Assessment Questionnaires and updated wage rates. The annual government cost for the collection has increased by $509,195, from $1,710,959 to $2,220,152, due to the addition of the Post Assessment Questionnaires and updated wage rates. This is a revision and renewal of an information collection. OMB is particularly interested in comments that: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.
