DHS/ALL/PIA-061-1 HSIN Release 3 User Accounts: HSIN Enterprise Reporting Solution


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Chief Information Officer (OCIO) maintains the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN). HSIN is designed to facilitate the secure integration and interoperability of information-sharing resources among federal, state, local, tribal, private-sector, and other non-governmental stakeholders involved in identifying and preventing terrorism, as well as undertaking incident management activities. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) Update documents how OCIO has established information sharing relationships through a new centralized application called HSIN Exchange to provide authorized individuals access to: (1) securely create, send, and receive requests for information (RFI); and (2) “opt-in” to receive messages and emergency notifications called Flash Alerts, thereby streamlining these communications. This PIA Update also documents that OCIO now maintains HSIN; it was previously maintained by the Office of Operations Coordination and Planning, now known as the Office of Operations Coordination (OPS).
