The audit is to ensure compliance with the FBI Criminal Justice Services Security Policy
At Microsoft, we consider compliance a commitment, not a checkbox. As part of that commitment, we seek opportunities to collaborate with the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) regulators and our customers on our approach to compliance, our commitment to Justice and Public Safety and how we design and operate our Government Cloud Services.
Equally as important is Microsoft's commitment to transparency in detailing the applicable controls are in place to meet (or exceed) the requirements outlined in the 13 Areas of the CJIS Security Policy.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) recently finalized the results of a CJIS technical audit for Office 365 and Azure Government.
With a comprehensive cloud portfolio of Office 365 and Dynamics CRMOL for Government (SaaS), Azure Government (IaaS, SaaS) offerings, it is important for FDLE and Microsoft to identify key responsibilities of the law enforcement agencies. In the chart below, agencies can see the shared responsibilities for an on-premises solution, an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), a Platform as a Service (PaaS), and a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. The FDLE audit results re-enforce the agency responsibilities to ensure compliance.
Microsoft is committed to partnering with CJIS Systems Agencies today and in the future to ensure our Justice and Public Safety personnel have access to the tools and applications necessary to keep our country safe!
