Digital evidence examination is the forensic acquisition and analysis of computer hard drives, thumb drives, cell phones, and any other data storage device obtained in the course of an investigation. The Office of Homeland Security Investigations within Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) uses a variety of electronic tools to conduct criminal investigations that encompass analyzing digital media. ICE uses these tools and technologies to analyze the volume of stored digital evidence data given its rate of growth and ubiquity. ICE is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because these electronic tools may be used to collect and maintain personally identifiable information (PII).
