DHS/USCG/PIA-001 Homeport Internet Portal


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), United States Coast Guard (USCG) developed Homeport Internet Portal to serve as an enterprise tool that facilitates compliance with the requirements set forth in the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) of 2002, by providing secure information dissemination, advanced collaboration for Area Maritime Security Committees (AMSC), electronic submission and approval for facility security plans, and complex electronic notification capabilities. The collection of personally identifiable information (PII) concerning those with access to the Homeport system allows the USCG to validate the suitability and identify the eligibility of those who request permission or have access to the system. The USCG is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) update to: identify the new platform leveraged for information sharing, describe the separation of restricted and unrestricted data, and address the removal of the Alert and Warning System (AWS) functionality from Homeport.
