DHS/USSS/PIA-002 USSS Protective Information eXchange


The United States Secret Service (Secret Service) renamed the Targeted Violence Information Sharing System (TAVISS) to the Protective Information eXchange (PIX) System. PIX is used to conduct name checks and determine whether an individual under investigation is of protective interest to any agency within the PIX community. The Secret Service is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) Update to reflect the name change and to describe additional personally identifiable information (PII) that was not previously collected by TAVISS but is now maintained in PIX by the Secret Service and participating agencies in the network.
