Maintains CJIS Standards
The Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) is a division of the
United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The CJIS was established in February 1992 and
it is the largest division in the FBI. A computerized criminal justice information
system that is a counterpart of FBI’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC) is centralized
in Washington D.C., and is maintained by Department of Justice (DOJ) in each state.
It is available to authorized local, state, and federal law enforcement and criminal justice
agencies via any of the three law enforcement communication systems — National Law Enforcement
Telecommunications System (NLETS), a more localized state criminal information system (name varies
by state), and the International Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (INLETS). Usually CJIS
offers a much wider range of information nationwide and more precise inquiry search parameters
than NCIC. CJIS consists of several databases and one subsystem, and its retrieval and update
capabilities are online.
These standards limit a viable hosting solution to use only Microsoft Azure. These standards also
ensure that ARMS meets all security requirements by CJIS. This includes:
- Password Complexity and History Requirements;
- Encryption of data between Client and Server;
- Encryption of data on Server (Optional).
Microsoft Azure Government Meets Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Requirements.
