Agency Information Collection Activities; Request for Comments; Revision of the BJS Confidentiality Pledge
The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), a component of the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), is seeking comments on revisions to the confidentiality pledge it provides to its respondents. These revisions are required by the passage and implementation of provisions of the federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, which requires the Secretary of 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. The revisions to the confidentiality pledge were previously published in the Federal Register on March 20, 2017, allowing for a 60 day comment period. BJS received and responded to one comment.
