DHS/USSS/PIA-003 Protective Threat Management System (PTMS)


The United States Secret Service (Secret Service or USSS) Protective Threat Management System (PTMS) is a case management system used to record information required to assist the agency in meeting its protective mission. PTMS records data on potentially threatening behavior and incidents that may impact the USSS mission to protect persons, events, and facilities. USSS uses data from PTMS to develop threat assessments. This PIA Update is being conducted to document the addition of a new subsystem called Uniformed Division Log Book (UDLB) to the PTMS system infrastructure, and new information sharing with USSS systems: Applicant Lifecycle Information System (ALIS), Electronic Check (eCheck), and Enterprise Person (ePerson).
