Basis Basis Basis
Commercial Vehicle Administration Center Transportation Information Center commercial vehicle permit information Moderate Moderate Moderate
Indicates company and individual vehicle permitting information, which is competitive commercial data. Observation of this information could provide leverage or business advantage over a particular carrier. If incorrect a vehicle or carrier may be misled about what permits it has or needs, resulting in a potential for being improperly permitted and penalized. MODERATE and not HIGH because the impact is likely to be limited and can likely be easily addressed. If this flow is inconsistently available there is probably little harm. It may be required for real-time CVO checking action, but the effect will apply to only one or at most, a limited number of drivers at a given location.
Commercial Vehicle Administration Center Transportation Information Center route restrictions Low Moderate Low
Should be public data, so no need for obfuscation. Incorrect route restrictions data will not affect the TIC but will affect the eventual user, and may result in a commercial vehicle being in a place the vehicle is not permitted. This information should not need to be updated often.
Commercial Vehicle OBE Fleet and Freight Management Center driver to fleet request High Moderate Moderate
Contains trip and payment details that if disclosed would compromise the driver, load and carrier. Payment details need to be correct or the vehicle may be delayed. Likely limited in scope to individual vehicles that suffer corrupted messages. If this flow is not available the commercial vehicle in question will be delayed and/or misrouted, which will inconvenience that vehicle, costing time and money.
Commercial Vehicle OBE Intermodal Customer System freight delivery status Moderate Moderate Moderate
Contains company information including load delivery specifics. While possibly not competitive, could be considered 'need-to-know', as anyone not providing transport services could have minimal legitimate use for this information. Possible abuses could leverage arrival and delivery information or transport operator locations. CVO decisions including job acceptance, routing and work planning are impacted by the quality of this data, so incorrect, unavailable or fraudulent data could have a significant financial impact.

Commercial Vehicle OBE Transportation Information Center freight traveler information preferences Moderate Moderate Moderate
Includes identity of the freight traveler, which should be protected as it is PII. DISC: Changed from WYO's suggestion of LOW due to PII. No severe consequences if incorrect, but difficult to justify allowing errors in a flow with MODERATE confidentiality. Preferences settings while useful and convenient, do not necessarily need anything beyond LOW. DISC: WYO disagrees
Emergency Management Center Transportation Information Center incident information for public Low Moderate Moderate
Generally, center-originating flows destined for a TIC don't contain any personal or confidential information, and are eventually intended for some kind of public consumption. Minor discrepancies in this data should not have a catastrophic effect, but it should be reasonably controlled and accurate. A few missed messages should not have a significant effect. However, most messages should make it through and the EMC should be able to know if the TIC has received a message.
Financial Center Transportation Information Center settlement Moderate Moderate Moderate
This may include PII and will include status information about a payment that could be used by a criminal for a variety of purposes, including identity theft, financial theft, or location-based activities, as the status is predictivie of what the account holder is doing and where they are doing it. Payment flows must all have some integrity protection and consistent availability to prohibit forgery and instill confidence in the payment process. Repurcussions of roadway payment are individually fairly small, collectiviely significant but probably never catastrophic. Thus MODERATE for both integrity and availability.
