Criminal Justice Information Service (CJIS) Security Policy

Criminal Justice Information Service (CJIS) Security Policy

AGENCIES SHARING INFORMATION MUST COMPLY WITH CJIS

Since its deployment 10 years ago, the N-DEx System continues to grow and law enforcement and criminal justice agencies can gain access to hundreds of millions of search records from local, state, tribal and federal sources. In 2018, 625 new criminal justice agencies began contributing data to N-DEx.  N-DEx System data contributors span more than 7,200 agencies in 44 states contributing nearly 460 million records. N-DEx also provides access to more than 318 million records through a federated search query, from agencies like the Department of Homeland Security, INTERPOL and others.  Furthermore, 72 of the 100 largest local and state departments now contribute data to N-DEx.

SO, WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH THE CJIS SECURITY POLICY?

CJIS is the largest division of the FBI and is comprised of several departments monitoring criminal activities in local and international communities and their databases provide a centralized source of criminal justice information to agencies around the country.  For agencies who access, share and contribute gathered information to N-DEx, it is mandatory that they are CJIS compliant.

CJIS has now established requirements for the use of data encryption when storing, sharing and using sensitive data, including criminal justice information used in communications. To comply with this policy, the task ahead can seem complicated and daunting.
