If you attended Motorola Solutions’ customer Summit last year and stopped in to one of the very popular Criminal Justice Information Service (CJIS) sessions, you might think you’re up to date on how CJIS and the CJIS Security Policy (CJIS SECPOL) impact your law enforcement agency.
Spoiler alert: there are significant changes happening to CJIS SECPOL. But don’t worry – we’ve got you covered with a presentation on the Modernization Project and other informative CJIS sessions at this year’s Summit.
FBI Launches Major Updates for CJIS SECPOL Requirements
The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), which creates and enforces the CJIS policy, has launched a major update to the CJIS SECPOL requirements to completely revamp the format and controls for protecting Criminal Justice Information. The CJIS Policy Modernization Project includes much more tailored and specific guidance, a better alignment with the NIST 800-53 Moderate controls baseline and rolling deadlines for implementation. The deadlines are already in progress and will be ongoing through the year 2025.
If that wasn’t reason enough to register for Summit, you’ll have the opportunity to brush up on other FBI-CJIS Programs and Services that can directly benefit state, local, tribal and territorial agencies. For instance, the sessions on the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) will provide an overview of the changes to the firearms background check process that you’ll want to be familiar with when the NICS staff reach out looking for information, and the role that FBI-CJIS plays when a local agency performs firearm background checks.
The CJIS sessions will also touch on everyone’s favorite time of year – when the state and/or FBI auditors come knocking on your door for your National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) audit or Technical audit, and of course, the ever-popular Roundtable Discussion where all of your questions can be asked and answered.
All of our Summit 2023 sessions are intended to help you understand CJIS compliance in relation to cloud adoption and on-premise systems for our product offerings. We invite you to attend these sessions if you want to find the answers you need to our most frequent CJIS questions about encryption and who works with your agency.
