DHS-ALL-PIA-048 Foreign Access Management System


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Under Secretary for Management (USM), Office of the Chief Security Officer (OCSO), Center for International Safety and Security (CISS) manages the Foreign Access Management (FAM) program that vets foreign nationals, foreign entities, and certain United States Persons (USPER) that seek access to DHS personnel, information, facilities, programs, or systems. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) update reflects the end of the Foreign Access Management Enterprise (FAME) Pilot program and the end of the agreement between OCSO/CISS and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC). This Privacy Impact Assessment update also covers the addition of systems that will be included in the CISS vetting process; an increase in the foreign contact reporting population based on Security Executive Agent Directive (SEAD) which expanded reporting requirements to DHS employees and contractors (covered individuals) holding sensitive positions; and a discussion on CISS’s use of Tableau as a dashboard for DHS security personnel.
