Privacy Impact Assessment Update for the U.S. Secret Service Electronic Name Check System (E-Check) [open pdf - 144KB]
"The United States Secret Service (USSS) Information Resources Management Division has established a system called Electronic Name Check System (E-Check). E-Check provides USSS with the capability to electronically collect prospective event participant information to enable automated criminal background checks. This PIA Update is being completed to reflect changes associated with USSS credentialing in conjunction with large events, to include National Special Security Events (NSSE), which have been partially outsourced to a third-party vendor. ECheck has also replaced the USSS Event Name Check System, which was an internal process used to determine suitability for an individual's access into USSS-protected events."
