In January 2017, the Secretary of Homeland Security expanded the DHS ITP beyond the protection of classified systems and information to include all threats to the Department posed by individuals who have or had authorized access to DHS facilities, information, equipment, networks, or systems. The DHS ITP is submitting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for the Department Headquarters (HQ) pilot and initial operational capability of the LiveSafe Platform. The LiveSafe Platform is a mobile application that will allow DHS mobile phone holders to use their DHS-issued mobile phone to report tips to the DHS ITP. The enterprise platform enables two-way, real-time interactions via location tagged text1 and phone communications, as well as a scalable mass notification service. All tips go to a dashboard that is reviewed by the ITP for determination of further action. The application requires user personally identifiable information (PII) to establish an account and maintains communications that are made through the program.
