OMB Approves TSA Surface Cybersecurity ANPRM

Yesterday, the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) for “Enhancing Surface Cyber Risk Management”. The proposed rulemaking was submitted to OIRA on October 4th, 2022. The rulemaking will “codify critical cybersecurity requirements for pipeline and certain other surface modes.”

The Spring 2022 Unified Agenda entry for this rulemaking notes that the TSA expects to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking in May of 2023. This ANPRM would be an information collection effort. That seems a bit odd since TSA has been working with pipeline and railroad organizations in the implementation of the various TSA cybersecurity security directives. I suspect that the ANPRM will be looking at expanding the universe of facilities that would be covered by the proposed rules.
