Guidelines for Choosing an Advanced Authentication Solution for Accessing Criminal Justice Informati

Guidelines for Choosing an Advanced Authentication Solution for Accessing Criminal Justice Informati

When it comes to law enforcement, timely information sharing is critical for stopping and reducing crime, and can sometimes even be a life-or-death issue. Criminal Justice Information (CJI) is shared at all levels starting at the federal level through state and even municipal local agencies. With the crucial need to share CJI comes the need to protect this sensitive information, the leakage of which can affect the effectiveness of ongoing crime fighting operations. As CJI items contain personal information of offenders, suspects, and witnesses, leakage of such information can violate individual privacy rights.

The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Security Policy defines the requirements of timely availability of shared information on one hand and data confidentiality on the other. This security policy contains a set of controls, requirements, and best practices, and it must be adhered to by any organization that exchanges criminal records. This applies to all local, state, and federal agencies that access and handle Criminal Justice Information through its
lifecycle - from creation through dissemination, whether at rest or in transit. Read the whitepaper to learn more.
