DHS/CISA/PIA-026 National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS)

The National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS) is an integrated system for intrusion detection, analysis, intrusion prevention, and information sharing capabilities that are used to defend the federal civilian government’s information technology infrastructure from cyber threats. The NCPS includes the hardware, software, supporting processes, training, and services that are developed and acquired to support its mission. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because personally identifiable information (PII) may be collected by the NCPS, or through submissions of known or suspected cyber threats received by the United States–Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) for analysis. This PIA will serve as a replacement for previously published PIAs submitted by NSCD for the 24/7 Incident Handling Center (March 29, 2007), and the Malware Lab Network (May 4, 2010), and is a program-focused PIA to better characterize the efforts of NCPS and US-CERT.
