DHS/S&T/PIA-040 Data Analytics Technology Center (DA-TC)


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) operates the Data Analytics Technology Center (DA-TC) to research the performance of, and identify opportunities and risks associated with emerging and next-generation advanced data analytics and computation capabilities. The DA-TC research activities involve data from government, commercial, and publicly available data, to refine technical problems, capability gaps, data sets, technology, operational assessments, and mission performance that meet DHS and the Homeland Security Enterprise (HSE) critical mission and operational needs. S&T is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to identify and mitigate privacy risks associated with DA-TC collecting, maintaining, and sharing personally identifiable information (PII) during research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E) of advanced analytic and computational capabilities. This PIA also assesses the privacy risks associated with the two distinct computing environments: a physical on-premise environment and off-premise cloud environments. August 2020
