The Department of Homeland Security is concurrently establishing a new system of records pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 entitled the Technical Fraud Detection and National Security Data System (FDNS-DS).

In this proposed rulemaking, the Department proposes to exempt portions of this system of records from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act because of criminal, civil, and administrative enforcement requirements.

Privacy Act of 1974: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE Pattern Analysis and Information Collection (ICEPIC) System of Records
Document Number: E8-19031
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-08-18
Agency: Office of the Secretary, Department of Homeland Security
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is re- publishing the system of records notice (SORN) for the ICE Pattern Analysis and Information Collection (ICEPIC) system to address comments received through the Federal Register comment procedure. A minor change has been made to the SORN to update the contact point for individual requests for access to and amendment of records in the system and to propose a new routine use for investigation and remediation of any loss or compromise of personal data from the system, should such a loss or compromise occur. On January 30, 2008, ICE originally established this system of records and published the SORN and associated proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register, 73 FR 5577 and 73 FR 5460 (Jan. 30, 2008). ICE received and considered the public comments, all of which were generally in favor of the system and the proposed rule. In light of the comments received, ICE concluded that no changes to the SORN are warranted at this time other than the proposed addition of a new routine use and to update the contact point for requests to access and correct system records. A final rulemaking is also published in this issue of the Federal Register in which the Department exempts portions of this system of records from one or more provisions of the Privacy Act because of criminal, civil, and administrative enforcement requirements.
