System name:
    Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Cyber Security/Information Assurance 
Records.

System location:
    Director, Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Cyber Security/Information 
Assurance (CS/IA) Program, 1235 South Clark Street, Suite 1500, 
Arlington, VA 22202.
    DoD Cyber Crime Center, 911 Elkridge Landing Road, Suite 200, 
Linthicum, MD 21090-2991.

Categories of individuals covered by the system:
    Supporting DoD contractor (hereafter referred to as ``DIB 
company'') personnel (points of contact and individuals submitting 
incident reports) providing DIB company information.

Categories of records in the system:
    DIB company point of contact information includes name, company 
name and mailing address, work division/group, work email, and work 
telephone number.
    DIB incident summary information includes name, company name, work 
division/group, work email, work telephone and fax numbers.

Authority for maintenance of the system:
    10 U.S.C. 2224, Defense Information Assurance Program; 44 U.S.C. 
3544, Federal Agency Responsibilities; HSPD 7, Critical Infrastructure, 
Identification, Prioritization, and Protection; DoD Directive (DoDD) 
3020.40, DoD Policy and Responsibilities for Critical Infrastructure; 
DoDD 5505.13E, DoD Executive Agent for the DoD Cyber Crime Center 
(DC3); DoD Instruction (DoDI) 3020.45, Defense Critical Infrastructure 
Program (DCIP) Management; and DoDI 5205.13, Defense Industrial Base 
(DIB) Cyber Security/Information Assurance (CS/IA) Activities.

Purpose(s):
    To facilitate the sharing of DIB CS/IA cyber 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.

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, these records contained therein may 
specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use pursuant to 
5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:
    DIB company point of contact information may be provided to other 
participating DIB companies to facilitate the sharing of information 
and expertise related to the DIB CS/IA program, cyber threat 
information and best practices, and mitigation strategies.
    Only the DoD ``Blanket Routine Uses'' 1 and 14 set forth at the 
beginning of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) compilation 
of systems of records notices apply to this system:
    DoD Blanket Routine Use 01 (Law Enforcement).

[[Page 29617]]

    DoD Blanket Routine Use 14 (Counterintelligence).
    Any release of information contained in this system of records 
outside the DoD will be compatible with the purpose(s) for which the 
information is collected and maintained.

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, 
and disposing of records in the system:
Storage:
    Electronic storage media.

    DIB Company POC information is retrieved primarily by company name 
and work division/group and secondarily by individual POC name.
    DIB incident reports are primarily retrieved by incident number but 
may also be retrieved by company name. They are not retrieved by the 
individual name.

Safeguards:
    Records are accessed by DIB CS/IA program office and DC3 personnel 
with security clearances who are properly screened, trained, under a 
signed confidentiality agreement, and determined to have ``need to 
know.'' Access to records requires DoD Common Access Card (CAC) and 
PIN. Physical access controls include security guards, identification 
badges, key cards, cipher locks, and combination locks.

    Disposition pending (treat records as permanent until the National 
Archives and Records Administration has approved the retention and 
disposition schedule).
