DHS-ICE-PIA-040 FALCON-Roadrunner


The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) has deployed a new information system called FALCON-Roadrunner, which is a module of the larger HSI FALCON environment.  This system generates investigative leads and conducts trend analysis to identify illicit procurement networks, terrorist groups, and hostile nations attempting to illegally obtain U.S. military products; sensitive dual-use technology; weapons of mass destruction (WMD); or chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear materials. FALCON-Roadrunner gives HSI investigators and analysts the ability to perform research, and generate leads for investigations of export violations within the jurisdiction of HSI.  FALCON-Roadrunner analyzes trade, law enforcement, financial, and screening data across large, disparate datasets to identify statistically anomalous trade transactions that may warrant investigation of export violations. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) was necessary because FALCON-Roadrunner accesses and stores Personally Identifiable Information (PII) retrieved from data systems owned by DHS and other government agencies, as well as commercially and publicly available data.
