Data Loss Prevention System (DLPS)
Pursuant to the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 (FISMA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) implemented the Data Loss Prevention System (DLPS) to help safeguard its sensitive information. The FAA uses DLPS to identify, prevent, and remediate the transmittal and storage of unencrypted Social Security Numbers (SSN) and Credit Card Numbers (CCN) on FAA servers and networks. This update to the DLPS Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) addresses risks associated with DLPS’s capture and storage of emails that may contain unencrypted SSNs/CCNs before they have left the FAA network. In addition, this PIA also addresses risks associated with DLPS’s storage of unencrypted suspected SSN/CCN on FAA servers and networks.
