ECommerce: CBP has a lot of things to protect against, says CBP spokesman
The Customs and Border Protection agency has been busy updating its online privacy policies since June, when the agency began implementing the new policies.
It’s been an iterative process, with the agency first announcing the changes in June.
The changes were first reported by Business Insider and Business Insider’s own research.
The agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In addition to the new privacy policies, the agency has also been updating its policies for its CBP Online Customer Contact Form.
The form allows for an individual to report suspicious activity, including the location of the person in question, as part of a broader review of customer interactions.
CBP is now asking people to report the locations of suspected criminal activity through the form.
The CBPS spokesperson said that, while the agency will be adding privacy protections to the forms, the process is ongoing.
“We have already begun to work with stakeholders to address privacy and security concerns and the issues associated with CBP’s Online Contact Form, and we look forward to sharing more information in the coming weeks and months,” the spokesperson said.
“We are continuously evaluating the privacy and safety risks associated with the Online Contact Forms as we move forward in implementing new privacy and digital security measures.”
The agency has previously released a series of privacy bulletins outlining its efforts to protect the privacy of its customers.
It has also released guidelines on the agency’s internal policies, as it moves forward in the fight against online privacy threats.
