Review - OMB Approves Emergency Revision of TSA Surface Cybersecurity ICR

Yesterday, the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved an emergency revision for the Transportation Security Agency’s information collection request (ICR) for “Cybersecurity Measures for Surface Modes”. The update for that ICR was just approved by OIRA the day before yesterday. The emergency approval document shows an increased burden estimate and the addition of three new information collections in the ICR. This emergency ICR approval is in support of TSA’s updated “Enhancing Rail Cybersecurity” security directive directives (SD 1580-2021-01A).

OIRA provides these emergency approvals for only six months. TSA will be required to go through the 60-day and 30-day notification process to formalize these changes. Only then will we (and OIRA) be able to determine the true scope of the changes involved.
