DHS/CISA/PIA-035 National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS) - Core Infrastructure


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Cybersecurity Division (CSD) leads the federal government effort to protect and defend federal civilian Executive Branch agency networks from cyber threats. These efforts are conducted, in part, through the National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS). The platforms and systems upon which the NCPS intrusion detection, analytics, intrusion prevention, and information sharing capabilities rely are called the NCPS Core Infrastructure. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) provides an in-depth analysis of the collection of information through the operation of the NCPS Core Infrastructure. CISA is in the process of developing separate PIAs to document the privacy implications for each of the NCPS’s capability areas (Intrusion Prevention, Intrusion Detection, Analytics, Core Infrastructure, and Information Sharing). Once published, these PIAs will eventually replace the currently published DHS/CISA/PIA-026 National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS). August 2020
