POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING, RETAINING, AND DISPOSING OF RECORDS:

STORAGE:

Records are stored in electronic media and in paper files and not on the card.

RETRIEVABILITY:

Records are retrievable by name, social security number, PIV card serial number, or Card Holder Unique Identification Number.

SAFEGUARDS:

Paper records are kept in locked cabinets in secure facilities and access to them is restricted to individuals whose role requires use of the records. Access to facilities will be controlled by the PIV card. The System requires a PIV card to log on and to digitally sign transactions. The computer servers in which records are stored are located in facilities that are secured by alarm systems and off-master key access. The computer servers themselves are password-protected. Access to individuals working at guard stations is password-protected; each person granted access to the system at guard stations must be individually authorized to use the system. A Privacy Act Warning Notice appears on the monitor screen when records containing information on individuals are first displayed. Data exchanged between the servers and the client PCs at the guard stations and badging office are encrypted. Backup tapes are stored in a locked and controlled room in a secure, off-site location.

An audit trail is maintained and reviewed periodically to identify unauthorized access. Persons given roles in the PIV process must complete training specific to their roles to ensure they are knowledgeable about how to protect individually identifiable information. The system uses the high risk confidentiality and integrity security controls specified in the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53.

RETENTION AND DISPOSAL:

Records relating to persons covered by this system are retained in accordance with General Records Schedule 18, Item 17. Unless retained for specific, ongoing security investigations, for maximum security facilities, records of access are maintained for five years and then destroyed by wiping hard drives and shredding paper. For other facilities, records are maintained for two years and then destroyed by wiping hard drives and shredding paper. All other records relating to employees are destroyed two years after ID security card expiration date.

In accordance with FIPS 201-1, PIV Cards are deactivated within 18 hours of cardholder separation, notification of loss of card, or expiration. The information on PIV Cards is maintained in accordance with General Records Schedule 11, Item 4. PIV Cards that are turned in for destruction are shredded within 90 days.
