The Secret Service uses the Field Support System (FSS) to support both investigative and protective functions of field operations. FSS is a combination of toolsets residing on a secure network in order to provide users with virtual environments that are used to further USSS operational activities, such as the investigation of financial crimes, cyber-crimes, and potential threats toward individuals and events under Secret Service protection. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is being updated to reflect the following changes to the operational environment: the removal of the SafeCraker and Cyber Shield toolsets; and the addition of Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) and eInformation Network (eIN). In addition, the FSS was part of the Criminal Investigative Division Suite (CIDS) System but is currently undergoing its own security authorization under the USSS Criminal Investigative Technology (CIT) Program.
