SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Jun 29, 2021 Jkt 253001 Comments Invited In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement 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; (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 using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Information Collection Requirement OMB Control Number 1652–0055; Pipeline Operator Security Information. In addition to TSA’s broad responsibility and authority for ‘‘security in all modes of transportation . . . including security responsibilities . . . over modes of transportation [,]’’ see 49 U.S.C. 114, TSA is required to issue recommendations for pipeline security measures and conduct inspections to assess implementation of the recommendations. See sec. 1557 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Public Law 110–53 (August 3, 2007). Consistent with these requirements, TSA produced Pipeline Security Guidelines in December 2010 and 2011, with an update published in April 2021. As the lead Federal agency for pipeline security and consistent with its statutory authorities, TSA needs to be notified of all (1) incidents that may indicate a deliberate attempt to disrupt pipeline operations and (2) activities that could be precursors to such an attempt. The Pipeline Security Guidelines encourage pipeline operators to notify the Transportation Security Operations Center (TSOC) via phone or email as soon as possible if any of the following incidents occurs or if there is other reason to believe that a terrorist incident may be planned or may have occurred: PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34777 • Explosions or fires of a suspicious nature affecting pipeline systems, facilities, or assets. • Actual or suspected attacks on pipeline systems, facilities, or assets. • Bomb threats or weapons of mass destruction threats to pipeline systems, facilities, or assets. • Theft of pipeline company vehicles, uniforms, or employee credentials. • Suspicious persons or vehicles around pipeline systems, facilities, assets, or right-of-way. • Suspicious photography or possible surveillance of pipeline systems, facilities, or assets. • Suspicious phone calls from people asking about the vulnerabilities or security practices of a pipeline system, facility, or asset operation. • Suspicious individuals applying for security-sensitive positions in the pipeline company. • Theft or loss of Sensitive Security Information (SSI) (detailed pipeline maps, security plans, etc.). When voluntarily contacting the TSOC, the Guidelines request pipeline operators to provide as much of the following information as possible: • Name and contact information (email address, telephone number). • The time and location of the incident, as specifically as possible. • A description of the incident or activity involved. • Who has been notified and what actions have been taken. • The names and/or descriptions of persons involved or suspicious parties and license plates as appropriate. On May 26, 2021, OMB approved TSA’s request for an emergency revision of this information collection. See ICR Reference Number: 202105–1652–002. The revision was required as a result of the recent ransomware attack on one of the Nation’s top pipeline supplies and other emerging threat information. TSA issued a Security Directive (SD) with requirements for TSA-specified critical pipeline owner/operators of hazardous liquid and natural gas pipelines and liquefied natural gas facilities. The SD included two new information collections. TSA now requires all owner/operators subject to the SD’s requirements to report cybersecurity incidents or potential cybersecurity incidents on their information and operational technology systems to the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) within 12 hours of discovery using the CISA Reporting System. In addition, the SD requires critical pipeline owner/operators to appoint cybersecurity coordinators and to provide contact information for the coordinators to TSA. To ensure that E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1 34778 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 123 / Wednesday, June 30, 2021 / Notices information reported pursuant to the SD is identifiable within the system, TSA requires these owners/operators to indicate that they are providing the information pursuant to the SD. TSA is now seeking renewal of this revised information collection for the maximum three-year approval period. Using the CISA reporting system, TSA expects the mandatory reporting of pipeline cybersecurity incidents to CISA will occur 20 times per year for each pipeline owner/operator, and it will take approximately 2 hours to gather the appropriate information to submit each incident report. The potential burden to the public for this task is 100 × 20 × 2 hours = 4,000 hours. TSA estimates that approximately 100 pipeline owner/operators will report their cybersecurity manager and alternate point of contact information. It will take the pipeline owner/operator approximately 30 minutes (0.50 hour) to do so, and the potential burden for this task is 100 × 0.50 hour = 50 hours. For non-cybersecurity pipeline incidents, TSA expects voluntary reporting of pipeline security incidents will occur on an irregular basis. TSA estimates that approximately 32 incidents will be reported annually, requiring a maximum of 30 minutes (0.50 hour) to collect, review, and submit event information. The potential burden to the public for this task is estimated to be 16 hours. Therefore, the total hour burden to the public for this information collection request is estimated to be 4,000 hours + 50 hours + 16 hours = 4,066 hours annually. the Paperwork Reduction Act. The purpose of this notice is to allow for an additional 30 days of public comment. DATES: Comments Due Date: July 30, 2021. ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding this proposal. Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ Start Printed Page 15501PRAMain.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be 
available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. 
Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following 
information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement 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;
    (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 using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0055; Pipeline Operator Security 
Information. In addition to TSA's broad responsibility and authority 
for ``security in all modes of transportation . . . including security 
responsibilities . . . over modes of transportation [,]'' see 49 U.S.C. 
114, TSA is required to issue recommendations for pipeline security 
measures and conduct inspections to assess implementation of the 
recommendations. See sec. 1557 of the Implementing Recommendations of 
the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Public Law 110-53 (August 3, 2007). 
Consistent with these requirements, TSA produced Pipeline Security 
Guidelines in December 2010 and 2011, with an update published in April 
2021.
    As the lead Federal agency for pipeline security and consistent 
with its statutory authorities, TSA needs to be notified of all (1) 
incidents that may indicate a deliberate attempt to disrupt pipeline 
operations and (2) activities that could be precursors to such an 
attempt. The Pipeline Security Guidelines encourage pipeline operators 
to notify the Transportation Security Operations Center (TSOC) via 
phone or email as soon as possible if any of the following incidents 
occurs or if there is other reason to believe that a terrorist incident 
may be planned or may have occurred:
     Explosions or fires of a suspicious nature affecting 
pipeline systems, facilities, or assets.
     Actual or suspected attacks on pipeline systems, 
facilities, or assets.
     Bomb threats or weapons of mass destruction threats to 
pipeline systems, facilities, or assets.
     Theft of pipeline company vehicles, uniforms, or employee 
credentials.
     Suspicious persons or vehicles around pipeline systems, 
facilities, assets, or right-of-way.
     Suspicious photography or possible surveillance of 
pipeline systems, facilities, or assets.
     Suspicious phone calls from people asking about the 
vulnerabilities or security practices of a pipeline system, facility, 
or asset operation.
     Suspicious individuals applying for security-sensitive 
positions in the pipeline company.
     Theft or loss of Sensitive Security Information (SSI) 
(detailed pipeline maps, security plans, etc.).
    When voluntarily contacting the TSOC, the Guidelines request 
pipeline operators to provide as much of the following information as 
possible:
     Name and contact information (email address, telephone 
number).
     The time and location of the incident, as specifically as 
possible.
     A description of the incident or activity involved.
     Who has been notified and what actions have been taken.
     The names and/or descriptions of persons involved or 
suspicious parties and license plates as appropriate.
    On May 26, 2021, OMB approved TSA's request for an emergency 
revision of this information collection. See ICR Reference Number: 
202105-1652-002. The revision was required as a result of the recent 
ransomware attack on one of the Nation's top pipeline supplies and 
other emerging threat information. TSA issued a Security Directive (SD) 
with requirements for TSA-specified critical pipeline owner/operators 
of hazardous liquid and natural gas pipelines and liquefied natural gas 
facilities. The SD included two new information collections. TSA now 
requires all owner/operators subject to the SD's requirements to report 
cybersecurity incidents or potential cybersecurity incidents on their 
information and operational technology systems to the Cybersecurity & 
Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) within 12 hours of discovery 
using the CISA Reporting System. In addition, the SD requires critical 
pipeline owner/operators to appoint cybersecurity coordinators and to 
provide contact information for the coordinators to TSA. To ensure that

[[Page 34778]]

information reported pursuant to the SD is identifiable within the 
system, TSA requires these owners/operators to indicate that they are 
providing the information pursuant to the SD. TSA is now seeking 
renewal of this revised information collection for the maximum three-
year approval period.
    Using the CISA reporting system, TSA expects the mandatory 
reporting of pipeline cybersecurity incidents to CISA will occur 20 
times per year for each pipeline owner/operator, and it will take 
approximately 2 hours to gather the appropriate information to submit 
each incident report. The potential burden to the public for this task 
is 100 x 20 x 2 hours = 4,000 hours.
    TSA estimates that approximately 100 pipeline owner/operators will 
report their cybersecurity manager and alternate point of contact 
information. It will take the pipeline owner/operator approximately 30 
minutes (0.50 hour) to do so, and the potential burden for this task is 
100 x 0.50 hour = 50 hours.
    For non-cybersecurity pipeline incidents, TSA expects voluntary 
reporting of pipeline security incidents will occur on an irregular 
basis. TSA estimates that approximately 32 incidents will be reported 
annually, requiring a maximum of 30 minutes (0.50 hour) to collect, 
review, and submit event information. The potential burden to the 
public for this task is estimated to be 16 hours. Therefore, the total 
hour burden to the public for this information collection request is 
estimated to be 4,000 hours + 50 hours + 16 hours = 4,066 hours 
annually.
