Privacy Compliance Review of the Science and Technology Directorate

The DHS Privacy Office launched a Privacy Compliance Review (PCR) on July 27, 2018, under the Chief Privacy Officer’s authority in accordance with Section 222 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, as a result of growing concerns that the DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) privacy compliance process, particularly for those programs involving social media and volunteers, did not meet requirements under DHS policies.  The PCR reviewed DHS S&T’s privacy compliance and privacy practices from October 1, 2016, through July 28, 2018.
