DHS/USCIS/PIA-080 Enterprise Gateway and Integration Service

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is migrating its information technology systems to the cloud environment to align with the Cloud Smart initiative. To support this modernization effort, USCIS launched the Enterprise Gateway and Integration Services (EGIS) to connect and share data from different systems. EGIS acts as a conduit for the exchange of information between systems within USCIS, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), external government agencies, and authorized third parties. EGIS is designed to replace the Enterprise Service Bus 2 (ESB 2) and its hosted services incrementally. Until the ESB 2 hosted services are fully integrated into EGIS, USCIS plans to maintain legacy ESB 2 as there is a continued need to sustain the exchange of information between legacy operational systems. EGIS will also consolidate some ESB 2 functionality and add functionality not found in ESB 2 (e.g., Payment Validation Services). USCIS plans to update and publish this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) in a phased approach to evaluate the privacy risks and mitigations associated with the collection, use, and dissemination of personally identifiable information (PII) by the migrated and new services hosted by EGIS.
