DHS/ICE/PIA-038 – FALCON Data Analysis & Research for Trade Transparency System (FALCON-DARTTS)

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) has deployed a new information system called FALCON Data Analysis & Research for Trade Transparency System (FALCON-DARTTS), which is a component system of the larger HSI FALCON environment. 

FALCON-DARTTS analyzes trade and financial data to identify statistically anomalous transactions that may warrant investigation for money laundering or other import-export crimes.  This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is necessary because FALCON-DARTTS accesses and stores personally identifiable information (PII) retrieved from data systems owned by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other government agencies, and commercially available databases. 

It is also necessary to provide public notice of the existence of FALCON-DARTTS and to publicly document the privacy protections that are in place for the system.  With the deployment of FALCON-DARTTS, the legacy DARTTS system, which served the same function as FALCON-DARTTS, as well as the PIA for legacy DARTTS will be retired.
