DHS/USCIS/PIA-083 USCIS Enterprise Collaboration Network


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration (USCIS) uses SharePoint-as-a-Service (SharePoint), commonly referred to throughout the agency as the Enterprise Collaboration Network (ECN), a web browser-based collaboration and document management platform from Microsoft. The USCIS ECN is a secure space for USCIS employees to create, manage, and share documents using customizable tools and services to eliminate additional investments in duplicative collaborative technologies. The USCIS ECN supports secure agency-wide collaboration and communication by connecting separate USCIS Program Offices and Directorates located in various geographic areas through the use of a common platform. USCIS is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to assess the privacy risks to the personally identifiable information (PII) collected, used, maintained, and disseminated on the USCIS ECN.
