DHS/ALL/PIA-076 Data Management Hub

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) manages data on behalf of DHS Components when there is a need to share that data with the Intelligence Community (IC) and other national security partners or to support DHS mission use cases and applications using a secure data environment. The Data Management Hub (or “Data Hub”) is a set of technical components that facilitates the storage, enrichment, tagging, and movement of DHS and partner data by I&A on the classified network fabric. The goal of the Data Hub is to provide a single authoritative data store of datasets in order to reduce data duplication and improve the authorized usage of data for data-sharing and analysis. It also centralizes and streamlines the data formatting, tagging, and transfer of data for approved internal and external mission applications, including bulk sharing with national security partners and other government agencies. The Data Hub is a series of technical components and, while it does not itself use specific information about individuals, it supports the storage and use of data and datasets that contain personally identifiable information (PII). The Data Hub simply transports and stores data and datasets; there is no data or dataset inherent to it. As such, data or datasets that use the Data Hub process will be listed in the appendices to this PIA. October 2019
