(4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection: DOE proposes to change the DATES: DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35925 form number from Form OE–417 to Form DOE–417. The other changes proposed to Form OE–417 align the reporting requirements with the recently approved North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) CIP– 008–6 Reliability Standard, which established new definitions for a Cyber Security Incident and a Reportable Cyber Security Incident. CIP–008–6 also expanded the reporting requirements; including expanding the applicable systems to report on and adding new reporting requirements for attempted compromises of high and medium impact BES cyber systems and their associated electronic access control or monitoring systems. The continued alignment between Form OE–417 and NERC reporting requirements helps minimize confusion among industry stakeholders about where and how to file reports and enable industry stakeholders to train personnel to report using a single form. By incorporating the requirements established by NERC CIP–008–6 Reliability Standard in Form OE–417, entities may only be required to submit Form OE–417. This change reduces the reporting burden for the electric power industry. Additional changes to Form OE–417 clarify reporting criteria and allow respondents to select potentially applicable exceptions under the Freedom of Information Act. While submitters may mark information as potentially exempt, whether information is or is not exempt as part of a FOIA response will be determined by the Department at the time of processing the FOIA request. See DOE’s FOIA regulations at 10 CFR part 1004 for more information. A summary of these and other changes to Form OE– 417 is provided below: • Changed the lettering or name of the form from ‘‘Form OE–417’’ to ‘‘Form DOE–417’’ • Added new reporting requirements from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) CIP– 008–6 Standard to reduce the combined burden on respondents reporting to NERC and DOE and streamline responses. It is expected that for NERC reporting entities registered in the United States; NERC will accept use of Form OE–417 to meet the submittal requirements that will be established by CIP–008–6 to the Department of Homeland Security and the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center • Updated the ‘‘Response Due’’ criteria with new line numbers and added the following: Æ ‘‘If criterion 2 is met, also submit the Cyber Attributes on line T in Schedule 2.’’ E:\FR\FM\12JNN1.SGM 12JNN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 35926 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 114 / Friday, June 12, 2020 / Notices Æ ‘‘By the end of the next calendar day after a determination, submit Schedule 1 and lines N–S and the Cyber Attributes on line T in Schedule 2 as an Attempted Cyber Compromise if criterion 14 is met.’’ • Renumbered reporting criteria due to the new reporting requirements. • To align with reporting requirements established by the NERC CIP–008–06 standard: Æ Reworded Criteria 2 to ‘‘Reportable Cyber Security Incident’’ Æ Added new Criteria 3 ‘‘Cyber event that is not a Reportable Cyber Security Incident that causes interruptions of electrical system operations.’’ • To align with reporting requirements established by the NERC CIP–008–06 standard Æ Added ‘‘Attempted Cyber Compromise’’ Alert Type to be filed within 1-Day Æ Added corresponding criteria ‘‘Cyber Security Incident that was an attempt to compromise a High or Medium Impact Bulk Electric System Cyber System or their associated Electronic Access Control or Monitoring Systems’’ • Updated Line Numbers throughout Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 • Added self-identified FOIA Exemption criteria for respondents to identify whether the respondent considers the information in Schedule 1 Lines C & D may be exempt FOIA due to the following: Æ ‘‘Privileged or confidential information, e.g., trade secrets, commercial, or financial information’’ Æ ‘‘Critical Electric Infrastructure Information’’ Æ ‘‘Other information exempt from FOIA’’ • Added self-identified FOIA Exemption criteria for respondents to identify whether information in Schedule 2 may be exempt FOIA due to the following: Æ ‘‘Privileged or confidential information, e.g., trade secrets, commercial, or financial information’’ Æ ‘‘Critical Electric Infrastructure Information’’ Æ ‘‘Other information exempt from FOIA’’ • Added the following to the direction to the Narrative Section ‘‘Cyber Attributes: For cyber events, including attempted cyber compromises, provide the following attributes (at a minimum): (1) The functional impact, (2) the attack vector used, and (3) the level of intrusion that was achieved or attempted.’’ • Added the DHS CISA Integrated Operations Coordination Center (CIOCC) or their successor(s) to Line W.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection request 
contains:
    (1) OMB No.: 1901-0288;
    (2) Information Collection Request Title: Electric Emergency 
Incident and Disturbance Report;
    (3) Type of Request: Three-year extension with changes;
    (4) Purpose: DOE uses Form OE-417 Emergency Incident and 
Disturbance Report to monitor electric emergency incidents and 
disturbances in the United States (including all 50 States, the 
District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. 
Territories) and to investigate significant interruptions of electric 
power or threats to the electric system reliability. Form OE-417 also 
enables DOE to meet the Department's national security responsibilities 
as the coordinating agency for Emergency Support Function (ESF) #12--
Energy, under the National Response Framework, and the Sector-Specific 
Agency for the energy sector, pursuant to Presidential Policy Directive 
21--Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, Presidential 
Policy Directive 41--United States Cyber Incident Coordination, and the 
Fixing Americas Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, Public Law 114-94. 
The information may also be shared with other non-regulatory federal 
agencies assisting in emergency response and recovery operations, or

electric system. Public summaries are published on Form OE-417 web page 
at https://www.oe.netl.doe.gov/oe417.aspx on a monthly basis to keep 
the public informed.
    (4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection: DOE proposes to 
change the form number from Form OE-417 to Form DOE-417. The other 
changes proposed to Form OE-417 align the reporting requirements with 
the recently approved North American Electric Reliability Corporation 
(NERC) CIP-008-6 Reliability Standard, which established new 
definitions for a Cyber Security Incident and a Reportable Cyber 
Security Incident. CIP-008-6 also expanded the reporting requirements; 
including expanding the applicable systems to report on and adding new 
reporting requirements for attempted compromises of high and medium 
impact BES cyber systems and their associated electronic access control 
or monitoring systems. The continued alignment between Form OE-417 and 
NERC reporting requirements helps minimize confusion among industry 
stakeholders about where and how to file reports and enable industry 
stakeholders to train personnel to report using a single form. By 
incorporating the requirements established by NERC CIP-008-6 
Reliability Standard in Form OE-417, entities may only be required to 
submit Form OE-417. This change reduces the reporting burden for the 
electric power industry. Additional changes to Form OE-417 clarify 
reporting criteria and allow respondents to select potentially 
applicable exceptions under the Freedom of Information Act. While 
submitters may mark information as potentially exempt, whether 
information is or is not exempt as part of a FOIA response will be 
determined by the Department at the time of processing the FOIA 
request. See DOE's FOIA regulations at 10 CFR part 1004 for more 
information. A summary of these and other changes to Form OE-417 is 
provided below:

417'' to ``Form DOE-417''
     Added new reporting requirements from the North American 
Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) CIP-008-6 Standard to reduce 
the combined burden on respondents reporting to NERC and DOE and 
streamline responses. It is expected that for NERC reporting entities 
registered in the United States; NERC will accept use of Form OE-417 to 
meet the submittal requirements that will be established by CIP-008-6 
to the Department of Homeland Security and the Electricity Information 
Sharing and Analysis Center
