Cost-Effective Solutions for Meeting CJIS Requirements

For the law enforcement community, intelligence is a critical component of fighting crime. Whether patrolling in the community, protecting a border or access to an event, combating smuggling and piracy, or stopping child-trafficking, being able to verify identities, and quickly and securely access and share intelligence, is critical to success.

To help protect this collaboration, a strict set of security controls must be adhered to by organizations that access or exchange information with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division.

The FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Security Policy (Section requires advanced authentication for access to the CJIS database from non-secure locations.


Applicable to criminal and non-criminal agencies alike, the policy provides a “minimum set of security requirements” for access to the CJIS database maintained by the FBI. These requirements help ensure the security of sensitive information and provide guidance in the protection of critical Criminal Justice Information (CJI) — “from creation through dissemination; whether at rest or in transit.”
