Many of our state government clients must adhere to Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) requirements to protect sensitive data. Their IT infrastructure must allow them to easily and securely move, store and process criminal justice data in the cloud.

I read an AWS Security Blog that announced the creation of the CJIS Workbook, which is a collection of several documents that assist customers in aligning with the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy. Gile, C. (2017, November 15). Updated CJIS Workbook Now Available by Request. Retrieved January 12, 2018, from

This workbook serves as a framework to help define and test controls and develop CJIS compliant architecture in the AWS Cloud.

I think it is a great resource for state government agencies to help frame policies and understand the roles and responsibilities associated with protecting criminal justice data in the cloud.
