DHS/USCIS/PIA-013(a) – Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate

U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) created the Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate (FDNS) to strengthen the integrity of the nation’s immigration system and to ensure that immigration benefits are not granted to individuals that may pose a threat to national security and/or public safety. In addition, FDNS is responsible for detecting, deterring, and combating immigration benefit fraud. USCIS conducted this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to document and assess how FDNS collects, uses, and maintains personally identifiable information (PII).
