Purpose:

To provide an automated notification mechanism to contact PFPA employees and mission partners to provide situational awareness, facilitate recall, and to give instructions during an emergency or incident impacting the Pentagon facilities.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories of users and the purposes of such uses:

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, the records contained herein may specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:

The DoD Blanket Routine Uses set forth at the beginning of the OSD's compilation of systems of records notices may apply to this system.

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, and disposing of records in the system:

Storage:

Electronic storage media.

Retrievability:

Individual's full name and organization.

Safeguards:

Records are maintained in a controlled facility with Closed Circuit TV (CCTV). Physical entry is restricted by the use of locks and guards, accessible only to authorized personnel. Access to records is limited to person(s) responsible for servicing the record in performance of their official duties and who are properly screened and cleared for need-to-know. Access to computerized data is restricted by Common Access Card (CAC) and username/passwords, which are changed periodically. Data is encrypted at rest and in transit.

Records are stored in encrypted databases that are only accessible on DoD networks that are routinely scanned to assess system vulnerabilities. Only a limited number of operators have access to the data. Common Access Cards (CAC) and passwords are used to authenticate authorized system operators in the system application. CAC authentication is required for users (recipients of notifications) to update their contact information and other personal data through the system Start Printed Page 24687desktop client. Users can only view and update their own information.

For users that are not networked, they must call, tell face-to-face or send an encrypted email to an operator to have their information loaded into the database or the information is provided to an operator via their organization's roster update which users have consented to provide.

The system data is encrypted both at rest and in transit. Firewalls protect the DoD networks and the system uses Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificates in the data transfer protocols for encryption.

Administratively PFPA regularly monitors the users' security practices to ensure only authorized users have access to PII.

Retention and disposal:

TEMPORARY—Cut off when superseded or obsolete, destroy immediately after cutoff.

System manager(s) and address:

Chief, Office of Emergency Management, Pentagon Force Protection Agency IEOC, 9000 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-9000.
