AGENCY:

National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

ACTION:

Privacy Act system of records notice (SORN) of a new system, NARA 45.

SUMMARY:

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) proposes to add a system of records to its existing inventory of systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552(a)) (“Privacy Act”). In this notice, NARA publishes NARA 45, Insider Threat Program records. In addition, NARA is updating Appendix B to add the SORN's system manager to the list of system managers and their addresses.

DATES:

This new system of records, NARA 45, and Appendix B update will become effective July 18, 2016 without further notice unless we receive comments by July 8, 2016 that cause us to revise it. NARA will publish a new notice if we must delay the effective date to review comments or make changes.

ADDRESSES:

You may submit comments, identified by “SORN NARA 45,” by one of the following methods:

  • Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments.
  • Email: Regulation_comments@nara.gov. Include SORN NARA 45 in the subject line of the message.

End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The notice for this system of records states the record system's name and location, authority for and manner of operation, categories of individuals it covers, types of records it contains, sources of information in the records, and the “routine uses” for which the agency may use the information. Appendix B includes the business address of the NARA official you may contact to find out how you may access and correct records pertaining to yourself.

The Privacy Act provides certain safeguards for an individual against an invasion of personal privacy. It requires Federal agencies that disseminate any record of personally identifiable information to do so in a manner that assures the action is for a necessary and lawful purpose, the information is current and accurate for its intended use, and adequate safeguards are provided to prevent misuse of such information. NARA intends to follow these principles when transferring information to another agency or individual as a “routine use,” including assuring that the information is relevant for the purposes for which it is transferred.

In addition, the Privacy Act allows agencies to exempt from release certain information compiled for law enforcement purposes. By a separate, concurrent rulemaking action, NARA is exempting this system of records for that purpose. See the final rule published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register.

NARA 45

SYSTEM NAME:

Insider Threat Program Records.

SYSTEM LOCATION:

The Office of the Chief Operating Officer at the National Archives in College Park maintains insider threat program records.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:

Individuals covered by this system include future, current, and former NARA employees, NARA contractors, employees and contractors of other Federal agencies who have access to classified information within NARA facilities, Presidential representatives at Presidential libraries, and members of the Public Interest Declassification Board. Other covered individuals include officials or employees of Federal, state, tribal, territorial, and local law enforcement organizations; complainants, informants, suspects, and witnesses; people with access to NARA facilities and infrastructure; members of the general public, including individuals and groups of individuals involved with insider threat matters, complaints, or incidents involving classified systems or classified information; individuals being investigated as potential insider threats; pose a threat to NARA operations, data, personnel, facilities, and systems; and foreign visitors or foreign contacts.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

NARA maintains a centralized hub for insider threat analysis to (1) manually and electronically gather, integrate, review, assess, and respond to information derived from internal and external sources, and (2) identify potential insider threat concerns and conduct an appropriate inquiry to resolve the concern.

NARA monitors user activity on all information technology networks or stand-alone systems, including use by both cleared and un-cleared employees. The Insider Threat Program may use this monitoring information to detect activity that might indicate insider threat behavior. The system includes records from this activity, including monitoring logs and insider threat analyses. The Insider Threat Program may also make use of records from other NARA Privacy Act systems of records. When this occurs, records from those other systems will also become part of this system of records. The other systems of records involved include: NARA 7: Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Mandatory Review of Classified Documents Request Files; NARA 8: Restricted and Classified Records Access Authorization Files, NARA 11: Credentials and Passes; NARA 12: Emergency Notification Files and Employee Contact Information; NARA 14: Payroll, Attendance, Leave, Retirement, Benefits, and Electronic Reporting System Records; NARA 17: Grievance Records; NARA 18: General Law Files; NARA 19: Workers' Compensation Case Files; NARA 22: Employee-Related Files; NARA 23: Office of Inspector General Investigative Case Files; NARA 24: Personnel Security Files; NARA 26: Volunteer and Unpaid Student Intern Files; NARA 27: Contracting Officer and Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) Designation Files; NARA 28: Tort and Employee Claim Files; NARA 30: Start Printed Page 36960Garnishment Files; NARA 32: Alternate Dispute Resolution Files; NARA 34: Agency Ethics Program Files; NARA 35: Case Management and Reporting System (CMRS); and NARA 43: Internal Collaboration Network (ICN).

In addition, this system of records may contain information from NARA offices, programs, databases, records, or sources, including incident reports, investigatory records, personnel security records, facility access records, network security records, security violations, travel records, foreign visitor records, foreign contact reports, financial disclosure reports, personnel records, medical records, information on complainants, informants, suspects, and witnesses, and records involving potential insider threats or activities.

All the records in this system of records may contain the following information on an individual: Name, social security number, date of birth, place of birth, security clearance, home address, work address, personal and official phone numbers, personal and official email addresses, other contact information, driver license number, vehicle identification number, license plate number, ethnicity and race, tribal identification number or other tribal enrollment data, work history, educational history, arrest reports, references to illegal drug involvement, mental health records including counseling related to use of alcohol or drugs, civil court action records, subversive activity information, outside affiliations, information on family members, dependents, relatives, and other personal associations, passport number, gender, fingerprints, hair and eye color, biometric data, and any other individual physical or distinguishing attributes. Investigation records and incident reports may include additional information on an individual, such as: Photos, video, sketches, medical reports, network use records, identification badge data, facility and access control records, email, and text messages.

The records may also include information concerning potential insider threat activity, counterintelligence complaints, investigative referrals, results of incident investigations, case numbers, forms, nondisclosure agreements, consent forms, documents, reports, and correspondence received, generated, or maintained in the course of managing insider threat activities and conducting investigations related to potential insider threats.

Finally, this system contains records of inquiries the hub creates in the course of managing the Insider Threat Program. An inquiry record is akin to a case file on a possible insider threat, and may contain any of the information described above, in addition to investigatory records such as interview notes, analysis of the potential threat, voluntary statements to investigators, and similar documents.

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:

44 U.S.C. 2104(a), as amended; Section 811 of the Intelligence Authorization Act for FY 1995; Executive Orders 13587, 13526, 12333, and 10450; Presidential Memorandum, National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs, November 21, 2012; Presidential Memorandum, Early Detection of Espionage and Other Intelligence Activities through Identification and Referral of Anomalies, August 23, 1996; and Presidential Decision Directive/NSC-12, Security Awareness and Reporting of Foreign Contacts, August 5, 1993.

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:

NARA maintains insider threat program records on people to: Manage insider threat matters; facilitate insider threat inquiries, investigations, and activities associated with counterintelligence complaints, inquiries, and investigations; identify potential threats; track referrals of potential insider threats to internal and external partners; provide statistical reports; and meet other insider threat reporting requirements.

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act, all or a portion of the records or information contained in this system may be disclosed outside NARA as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:

(1) To the Executive Office of the President in response to an inquiry from that office made at the request of the subject of a record or a third party on that person's behalf, or for a purpose compatible to those for which the records are collected or maintained, to the extent the records have not been exempted from disclosure pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j)(2) and (k)(2).

(2) To an official of another Federal agency to provide information the agency needs to perform official duties related to reconciling or reconstructing data files or to enable that agency to respond to an inquiry by the individual to whom the record pertains.

(3) To state, local, and tribal governments to provide information in response to a court order or litigation discovery requests, when disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the records were compiled.

(4) To other appropriate agencies, entities, and people when:

(a) NARA suspects or confirms that the security or confidentiality of information in the system of records has been compromised; and

(b) NARA has determined that, as a result of the suspected or confirmed compromise, there is a risk of harm to economic or property interest, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security or integrity of this system or other systems or programs (whether maintained by NARA or another agency or entity) that rely upon the compromised information; and

(c) NARA discloses the information to such agencies, entities, and people who are reasonably necessary to assist in connection with NARA's efforts to respond to the suspected or confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm.

(5) To the Office of Management and Budget during legislative coordination and clearance as mandated by OMB Circular A-19.

(6) To the Department of the Treasury to recover debts owed to the United States.

(7) To the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, and other Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to refer potential insider threats to them and exchange information on insider threat activity.

(8) To any criminal, civil, or regulatory authority (whether Federal, state, territorial, local, or tribal) to provide background search information on individuals for legally authorized purposes, including but not limited to background checks on individuals residing in a home with a minor or individuals seeking employment opportunities requiring background checks. Routine uses A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H listed in Appendix A also apply to this system.
