OMB Approves DHS Privacy Act Update NPRM

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for the Office of the Secretary at DHS for “Privacy Act of 1974”. This rulemaking showed up for the first time in the Spring 2021 Unified Agenda. According to the abstract for that listing:

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS or Department) is proposing to amend its regulations under the Privacy Act of 1974. DHS is proposing to update and streamline the language of several provisions.”

There is not enough information available at this time to determine what sort of impacts this might have on the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards or the cybersecurity operations at CISA.
