DHS/TSA/PIA-039 TSA Encounter Analysis Branch

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A), Encounter Analysis Branch (EAB) seeks to improve TSA’s ability to identify potential risks to transportation security. Initial efforts by the EAB involved discovering and analyzing previously unknown links or patterns among individuals who undergo a TSA security threat assessment (STA), passengers identified as a match to a government watch list, and passengers who do not present acceptable identification documents to access the sterile area of an airport whose identity cannot be verified through the identity verification process. TSA is updating the EAB Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to reflect operational changes to the program to include new investigative steps that may be taken in performing security threat assessment reviews on transportation sector workers and TSA Pre✓® participants.
