Border agency did 'not adequately safeguard' facial recognition data, 看门狗发现

海关与边境保护 “没有足够的保障” 去年在面部识别技术试点期间获取了敏感数据, 根据一个 new government watchdog report.

数据泄露, which CBP announced in 2019, compromised approximately 184,000 traveler images from CBP’s facial recognition pilot, according to the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General, 和至少 19 of the images were posted to the dark web.
This incident may damage the public’s trust in the Government’s ability to safeguard biometric data and may result in travelersreluctance to permit DHS to capture and use their biometrics at U.S. ports of entry,” the inspector general wrote.
有线电视新闻网 已报告 on the data breach involving a subcontractor, Perceptics, LLC, 在六月 2019.
    一个 CNN analysis last year also found that at least 50,000 American license plate numbers were made available on the dark web after Perceptics, which was hired by CBP, was at the center of a major data breach. The company was never authorized to keep the information, the agency told CNN at the time.
    According to the inspector general, during the pilot program, Perceptics transferred copies of CBP’s biometric data, such as traveler images, to its own company network between August 2018 and January 2019.
    The company’s network was latersubjected to a malicious cyber attack.Perceptics staff violated security and privacy protocols when they downloaded the sensitive information onto their own network, 根据报告. This occurred without CBP’s knowledge.
      然而, the watchdog concluded that CBP’s information security practices during the pilot wereinadequate to prevent the subcontractor’s actions.
