CJIS is a division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) responsible for providing criminal justice information, including criminal history records, fingerprints, and other related data, to law enforcement agencies, criminal justice entities, and authorized individuals.
CJIS compliance refers to the standards and requirements that govern the handling, management, and protection of this sensitive criminal justice information. CJIS compliance standards include specific policies, procedures, and technical controls that must be implemented to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of criminal justice information.
To be CJIS compliant, law enforcement agencies, criminal justice entities, and authorized individuals must undergo a rigorous security review process that includes background checks, security awareness training, and compliance audits. Organizations must also implement specific technical controls, such as secure communication channels, access controls, audit trails, and encryption, to protect criminal justice information from unauthorized access or disclosure.
CJIS compliance is critical for ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of criminal justice information and maintaining public trust in the criminal justice system. Failure to comply with CJIS standards can result in significant fines, legal liabilities, and loss of access to criminal justice information. Organizations that handle or access criminal justice information must ensure they are CJIS compliant.
