I. Abstract and Request for Comments

NCUA is amending/reinstating the collection for 3133-0033. NCUA is renewing the requirements for Federally Insured Credit Unions to maintain an information security program and an incident response plan that complies with Title V of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, 15 U.S.C. 6801 et seq. Section 748.0 of NCUA's Rules and Regulations, 12 CFR 748.0, directs federally insured credit unions to adopt a security program that includes ensuring the security and confidentiality of member records, protecting against the anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such records, and protecting against unauthorized access to or use of such records that could result in substantial harm or serious inconvenience to a member. The security program also contains a requirement to respond to incidents of unauthorized access to or use of member information that could result in substantial harm or serious inconvenience to a member. Proper incident response includes a notification requirement to the affected member. NCUA examiners review the programs to determine whether the credit union's procedures comply with the information security and incident response requirements. There is a decrease of 39,776 hours from the last submission (2007). The decrease is a result of an adjustment to the number of credit unions from 8,695 to 6,753. This decline is from credit union mergers and liquidations.

The NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to the location listed in the addresses section. Your comments should address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents such as through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments available to the public for review.
