Highlights of OMB Guidance M This Memorandum requires Federal agencies to take specific steps to protect individual privacy whenever they use third-party websites and applications to engage with the public. Scope : This Memorandum applies to any Federal agency use of third-party websites or applications to engage with the public for the purpose of implementing the principles of the Open Government Directive. The guidance also applies when an agency relies on a contractor (or other non-Federal entity) to operate a third-party website or application to engage with the public on the agency’s behalf.
Highlights of M – Social Media PIA is required if Agency makes PII available to the agency. Make PII Available. When any agency action causes PII to become available or accessible to the agency, whether or not the agency solicits or collects it. This is can include activities commonly referred to as “friend-ing,” “following,” “liking,” joining a “group,” becoming a “fan,” and comparable functions. PIA can cover multiple websites or applications that are functionally comparable and practices are substantially similar. If an agency’s use of a website or application raises distinct privacy risks, the agency should prepare a PIA that is exclusive to that website or application.
Examples of PIAs on Social Media DHS - Use of Social Networking Interactions and Applications Communications/Outreach/Public Dialogue DHS – Publicly Available Social Media Monitoring and Situational Awareness Initiative DHS - Department of Homeland Security Our Border Network (Privacy Specific Risk PIA) DOJ - Privacy Impact Assessment for Third-Party Social Web Services
Adapted PIA Questions What is the specific purpose of the component’s use of the third-party website or application? List any PII that is likely to become available to the component through public use of the third-party website or application What is the component’s intended or expected use of PII? With whom will the component share PII? Describe whether and how the component will maintain PII, and for how long Describe how the component will secure PII that it uses or maintains Describe what other privacy risks exist and how the component will mitigate those risks Describe whether the component’s activities will create or modify a “system of records” under the Privacy Act
PII Breach Media Improving here, but only takes one Still # 1 And complacency …..
Example PII Breaches Secure at the Conference?

The Cost of A PII Breach The most significant cost to an organization results from lost confidence and trust by our sailors, marines, government civilians and public –for a company that translates into customer turnover and loss of brand equity –impacts employee morale, ability to recruit new hires and job satisfaction Potential class action law suits and or criminal prosecution Mailings, call center costs and credit monitoring Expenses associated with identity theft
25 Phishing is the process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords or financial account details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. This is a growing activity within the DON. They generally ask you to click a link back to a spoof web site. Doing so could subject you to the installation of key logging software or viruses. They use fear to motivate you to respond – “your account has been temporarily suspended due to recent fraudulent activity, we need you to verify your account information…” Never open s from unknown sources or institutions soliciting: Passwords Credit card information ATM/Debit Card number Social Security Number Bank/financial account number If in doubt about validity of the , call their customer service number.

29 Be Careful Out There!!!
The Scoop Deck blog shed light on a Dec Al- Qaeda call for their members to monitor what we say about ourselves, our units and our families online in order to gather intelligence. “Information on every U.S. Naval unit should be quietly gathered… their ranks, what state they are from, their family situation, and where their family members live… …search for the easiest ways of striking these ships…. Do not underestimate the importance of any piece of information, as simple as it may seem….” WHAT THEY WANTED: The call wasn’t just about unit missions, location, troop manning, weapons, movement and route. They asked for members’ names, ranks, home state, family situation and family names. The Threat is Real
