DHS/CBP/PIA-010 Analytical Framework for Intelligence (AFI)


The U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Analytical Framework for Intelligence (AFI) system provides enhanced search and analytical capabilities to identify, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who pose a potential law enforcement or security risk, and aids in the enforcement of customs, immigration, and other laws enforced by DHS at the border. Since the original Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), CBP has increased technical safeguards in AFI; added a new user role, additional DHS users, and additional data sources; and developed a governance process that includes the operational and oversight components of CBP. CBP is updating the original AFI PIA to address Privacy Compliance Review (PCR) recommendations and to promote transparency regarding the new users, data sources, data access, and analytic functions of AFI.
