Overview Edit

The National Security Branch Analysis Center (NSAC) is an FBI database with over 1.5 billion government and private-sector records, which are mined for use in criminal investigations. The records include:

  • International travel records of citizens and foreigners
  • Financial forms filed with the Treasury by banks and casinos
  • 55,000 entries on customers of Wyndham Worldwide, which includes Ramada Inn, Days Inn, Super 8, Howard Johnson and Hawthorn Suites
  • 730 records from rental-car company Avis
  • 165 credit card transaction histories from Sears
  • Nearly 200 million records transferred from private data brokers such Accurint, Acxiom and Choicepoint
  • 17,000 traveler itineraries from the Airlines Reporting Corporation.

It is possibly the reincarnation of the Total Information Awareness (TIA) program.
