Meeting the applicable regulatory controls of the CJIS Security Policy is a long-term commitment for Microsoft. We don’t consider it a checkbox, it is a commitment. As part of this commitment Microsoft recently signed the CJIS Security Addendum with Utah--bringing the total states which Microsoft has signed the CJIS Security Addendum to 25.
With the 25th state being signed, there is now support for two-thirds of the U.S. population; giving justice and public safety organizations the opportunity to implement advanced solutions in the secure, compliant, Microsoft government cloud. This commitment from Microsoft, combined with innovative solutions including camera technology, biometrics, jail/court/offender management, investigation and evidence solutions, are empowering digital transformation in law enforcement.
For additional implementation information, be sure to check out the Microsoft CJIS Implementation Guidelines. This document provides guidelines and resources to assist criminal justice entities in implementing and using Microsoft Government Cloud features.
