DHS-ALL-PIA-046 DHS Data Framework

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS or Department) Data Framework (Framework) is a scalable information technology (IT) program with built-in capabilities to support advanced data architecture and governance processes. The DHS Data Framework is the Department’s “big data” solution to build in privacy protections while enabling more controlled, effective, and efficient use of existing homeland security-related information across the DHS enterprise and with other U.S. Government partners, as appropriate.
