AWS Signs CJIS Agreement with the State of Oregon






AWS recently signed a Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) agreement with the State of Oregon. Oregon joins California, Minnesota, and Colorado in allowing both state and local police to leverage the AWS Cloud for sensitive data, such as fingerprints and criminal history. These CJIS security addenda give our law enforcement customers the confidence that their data will pass CJIS compliance audits and that their data is secure in the AWS Cloud.

We are committed to doing our part as a cloud service provider by giving our customers the means, through our services, to comply with CJIS requirements within their IT environments. Customers can deploy applications, data, and services, all of which securely comply with CJIS Security Policy requirements.

“The Oregon State Police (OSP) is pleased to announce to the Oregon CJIS community that OSP and Amazon have agreed to a security control agreement that meets every requirement of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy. This agreement gives Oregon agencies additional hosting options that enhance security, while meeting their business requirements pertaining to Criminal Justice Information (CJI),” said Major Tom M. Worthy, CSO, Oregon State Police.
