DHS/CISA RIN: 1670-AA02 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Updates to Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII) Program 

The Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII) regulations provide the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with the authority to establish uniform procedures for the receipt, care, and storage of Critical Infrastructure Information voluntarily submitted to the Department. In April 2016, DHS issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM), inviting public comment on potential revisions. These updates and revisions would be 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, particularly subject matter areas that have developed significantly since the issuance of the initial rule, such as automated information sharing. DHS is reviewing the public comments received in response to the ANPRM, after which DHS intends to publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.
