DHS/ALL/PIA-055 DHS Data Analysis Tools

I&A is developing, deploying, and using Data Analysis Tools (DAT) for the Department to perform enhanced analysis of DHS data sets and other data sources available to DHS in support of its homeland security mission. This privacy impact assessment examines the privacy implications of DATs, as they will analyze data sources that contain personally identifiable information (PII). It describes the types of tools the Department may develop, how the tools will use data, what information the tools will use, how information is protected when it is used in DATs, and the oversight process for DAT deployment. Additionally, this PIA describes a prototyping environment on the classified DHS network that I&A will use to facilitate the development and testing of DATs.
