DHS/USCIS/PIA-085 Pangaea: Pangaea Text


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) uses Pangaea, a suite of customized data-driven applications that provide actionable intelligence for USCIS to make informed operational decisions. The first application that USCIS plans to use is Pangaea Text, a secure web-based system, to assist in safeguarding the integrity of the asylum program by identifying fraud, national security, and public safety concerns. USCIS is issuing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to discuss the risks and mitigations associated with the use of Pangaea Text. As USCIS continues to use additional tools within the Pangaea suite, USCIS will issue updates to this PIA. January 2021
