Title 6 published on 15-Apr-2017 03:25
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 6 CFR Part 29 after this date.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) invites public comment on the Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to update its regulation “Procedures for Handling Critical Infrastructure Information”. These comments may be used for potential revisions to the current regulation to strengthen and align the language to support the evolving needs of the critical infrastructure community and the cyber landscape.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to update its procedures for accepting Critical Infrastructure Information (CII) as a step towards meeting the challenges of evolving technology and identifying ways to make the PCII Program's protective measures more effective for information-sharing partnerships between the government and the private sector. The Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002 authorizes DHS to establish a program to accept information relating to critical infrastructure voluntarily submitted from the public, owners and operators of critical infrastructure, and State, local, tribal, and territorial governmental entities, while limiting public disclosure of that sensitive information under the Freedom of Information Act and other laws, rules, and processes. To implement this authority, DHS issued the “Procedures for Handling Critical Infrastructure Information” Final Rule in 2006. This Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) provides an opportunity for DHS to hear and consider, during the development of new regulations to update DHS's PCII program, the views of the private and public sector, and other interested members of the public on their recommendations for program modifications, particularly subject matter areas that have developed significantly since the issuance of the initial rule, such as automated information sharing.
