PATRIOT Act IT Security guidelines

Hello All --

I have been researching the PATRIOT Act as it relates to data protection. Essentially, the Act requires financial institutions to gather information regarding terrorists and suspected terrorists, and monitor accounts which they maintain for any links to the suspects.

I am interested in finding any guidelines on how this sensitive information must be protected, potential penalties for negligence, and any reporting requirements for intrusions or other incidences.

I have not been able to find very detailed information beyond what was originally stated in the Act, which specifies that the Secretary of the Treasury shall, in the future, enact regulations to: "further establish procedures for the protection of the shared information, consistent with the capacity, size, and nature of the institution to which the particular procedures apply."

I believe the deadline for these additional regulations to be enacted has passed, but have not been able to locate anything.

Thank you very much for any assistance.
