DHS/CBP/PIA-041 Enterprise Geospatial Information Services

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Enterprise Geospatial Information Services (eGIS) displays data on maps to monitor activities along the U.S. border for potential border vulnerabilities, corrective actions, border incidents, and relevant events (such as arrests and seizures) using geographic data. eGIS presents visual displays of current and historical data from various DHS source systems to provide situational awareness for making critical organizational decisions. CBP is updating this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to assess the privacy risks of eGIS’ use of landowner parcel and contact information in association with CBP’s need to seek expedited real estate Rights of Entry (ROE), Right of Way (ROW), and subsequent acquisition of land for the placement of proposed and approved border surveillance technology and infrastructure.
