DHS/USSS/PIA-025 United States Secret Service Special Operations Division Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems in support of United Nations General Assembly

The United States Secret Service’s (USSS or Secret Service) Special Operations Division (SOD) is conducting a pilot, in coordination with the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and Science & Technology Directorate (S&T), to test and evaluate technologies used to detect, identify, and mitigate Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) that may pose a potential threat to “covered facilities” and assets at the September 2019 United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). These protective technologies are referred to as Counter-UAS (C-UAS) systems. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) discusses measures taken to mitigate privacy risks and the impact to protect personally identifiable information (PII) during the deployment of C-UAS technologies in an urban setting under operational circumstances.

DHS/USSS/PIA-024 Facial Recognition Pilot

U.S. Secret Service (USSS or Secret Service) will operate a Facial Recognition Pilot (FRP) at the White House Complex in order to biometrically confirm the identity of volunteer USSS employees in public spaces around the complex. The FRP will seek to test USSS’s ability to verify the identities of a test population of volunteer USSS employees. Ultimately, the goal of the FRP is to identify if facial recognition technologies can be of assistance to the USSS in identifying known subjects of interest prior to initial contact with law enforcement at the White House Complex. The collection of volunteer subject data will assist USSS in testing the ability of facial recognition technology to identify known individuals and to determine if biometric technology can be incorporated into the continuously evolving security plan at the White House Complex.
