DHS/CBP/PIA-002 - Global Enrollment System (GES)

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) operates the Global Enrollment System (GES), an information technology (IT) system that facilitates enrollment and security vetting for CBP’s voluntary Trusted Traveler, Registered Traveler, and Trusted Worker Programs. Program participants volunteer to provide personally identifiable information (PII) and consent to CBP security vetting in return for expedited processing at designated U.S. Ports of Entry (POE) or for access to sensitive CBP-controlled areas or positions. CBP is updating this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to document changes related to GES, including: (1) the introduction of the cloud-based Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) System for online application to CBP programs; and (2) the use of the General Services Administration (GSA) portal for identity authentication.
