Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Security Policy is raising the bar for information security in any public agency whose personnel access criminal and justice records as defined by the U.S. Department of Justice. Regulators are setting new security standards aimed at making sure citizens' information is protected against unauthorized access and accidental loss. The CJIS Security Policy includes requirements for activities ranging from training to enforcement of sound security practices and auditing. It specifically mandates that organizations adopt comprehensive measures to control access to data and keep it protected at all times.
