DHS seeks efficiency with automated watchlist
Tuesday - 8/31/2010, 6:00am EDT
Watchlist Service (WLS) will replace multiple data feeds from the FBI's Terrorist Screening Center to DHS agencies that handle counterterrorism, law enforcement and border security, according to Government Computer News.
"WLS will allow TSC and DHS to move away from a manual and cumbersome process of data transmission and management to an automated and centralized process," the Watchlist Service said.
Officials say no additional data will pass through WLS, and that its main purpose is to improve efficiency.
On May 1, Pakistani-American citizen, Faisal Shahzad, attempted to detonate a car bomb in Times Square. On Aug. 30, two Yemeni men were arrested in the Netherlands and charged with "preparation of a terrorist attack" after flying there from Chicago's O'Hare Airport.
The WLS will be implemented in stages.
