DHS/CBP/PIA-054 Laboratory Information Network (LIN)


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Laboratories and Scientific Services Directorate (LSSD) owns and operates the Laboratory Information Network (LIN) system. Laboratory analysts use the LIN web application for tracking and storing information related to analysis requests, test results, and laboratory reports supporting CBP trade and forensic investigations. CBP is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment because, in addition to material or digital forensic evidence related to a case, LIN case records may include personally identifiable information (PII).
