“The essential premise of the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Security Policy is to provide appropriate controls to protect the full lifecycle of CJI, whether at rest or in transit. The CJIS Security Policy provides guidance for the creation, viewing, modification, transmission, dissemination, storage, and destruction of CJI. This Policy applies to every individual—contractor, private entity, noncriminal justice agency representative, or member of a criminal justice entity—with access to, or who operate in support of, criminal justice services and information.”*
Criminal Justice Information (CJI) refers to data necessary for law enforcement and civil agencies to perform their duty. Examples of CJI data include biometric data (DNA, fingerprints, etc.), identity history data (history of criminal and/or civil events regarding the individual), personal data, property data, and case history.
