DHS/ALL/PIA-073 Electronic Discovery (eDiscovery) Tools

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) uses commercial off-the-shelf electronic discovery (eDiscovery) software tools to aid in the collection of existing departmental records and to facilitate the review and production of electronically stored information (ESI), such as emails, computer files, and databases. eDiscovery software is a document processing tool that supports the organization of ESI for analysis, review, redaction, and production to meet DHS requirements. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) Update discusses the Department’s use of this technology for the purposes of internal investigations, complaint processing, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) or Privacy Act (PA) requests, research, and other Departmental issues and requirements.
