Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD.

ACTION:

Notice to alter a System of Records.

SUMMARY:

The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to alter a system of records, DCIO 01, entitled “Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Cyber Security/Information Assurance Records” to facilitate the sharing of DIB cybersecurity threat information and best practices to DIB companies to enhance and supplement DIB participant capabilities to safeguard DoD information that resides on, or transits, DIB unclassified information systems. When incident reports are received, DoD Cyber Crime Center (DC3) personnel analyze the information reported for cyber threats and vulnerabilities in order to develop response measures as well as improve U.S. Government and DIB understanding of advanced cyber threat activity. DoD may work with a DIB company on a more detailed, digital forensics analysis or damage assessment, which may include sharing of additional electronic media/files or information regarding the incident or the affected systems, networks, or information.

DATES:

Comments will be accepted on or before June 22, 2015. This proposed action will be effective the date following the end of the comment period unless comments are received which result in a contrary determination.
