Security Tip – HSPD-12 Helpdesk Emails and Sensitive PII

When contacting the HSPD-12 Helpdesk (hspd12@gsa.gov), or when communicating with MSO staff individually, it is important to be cognizant of the type of information you are including in emails. Do not send sensitive applicant Personally Identifiable Information (PII) such as DOB or SSN via email. Usually, MSO staff can look up applicants with just their name. If there is any confusion regarding the applicant, MSO staff will contact you to clarify.

Security Tip: Re-Capture Everything During Re-Enrollments

Registrars, remember that you must always re-capture fingerprints, re-take the photo, and re-scan ID documents during a re-enrollment. Since Registrars do not have the ability to determine why a re-enrollment was requested, you must always re-do the entire enrollment process.

In most cases, in order to re-capture fingerprints, you must first clear the original fingerprints. You may do so by clicking the “Clear All” button in the Capture Window of the 10-print screen.

Security Tip: Linking Documents

The only time during enrollment that identity source documents with different names can be accepted is when both the primary and secondary documents are valid and not expired, and an official linking document is provided linking the two names.

A linking document must have both the former and current legal names on it, and it might include a marriage certificate, certified copy of birth certificate, or court record.
