"This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) examines the privacy implications for the National Asset Database (NADB). The Office of Infrastructure Protection's Protective Security Division (PSD) is responsible for reducing the nation's vulnerability to terrorism by developing and implementing plans to identify and protect critical infrastructure and key assets, and to deny the use of these infrastructures as weapons. To facilitate this responsibility, PSD has built the NADB as a repository of the nation's facilities and assets spanning the 17 Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CI and KR). The Physical Targets Section of PSD has gathered and continues to gather data related to Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CI and KR) from a variety of sources in order to compile the NADB. The current data collected has resulted from formal data calls and voluntary submissions from Federal agencies, state and local government, and private sector entities and from review and inclusion of information from Federal and commercial databases regarding CI and KR. In July 2004, the Office of Infrastructure Protection (DHS/IP) in coordination with the Office of State and Local Coordination conducted a data call requesting that the 56 States and Territories provide a comprehensive listing of those assets they deemed of national or local importance."
