AWS Offers Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Workbook

Amazon Web Services (AWS) recognizes that when law enforcement agencies place information in the cloud, they require timely and secure access to that information. AWS architecture provides a highly scalable and reliable platform that enables AWS customers to deploy applications and data quickly and securely in support of a wide variety of security and regulatory requirements, including those related to criminal justice.

In the spirit of the AWS Shared Responsibility Model, AWS has created a Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Workbook in a security plan template format aligned to the CJIS Policy Areas. AWS customers who use this workbook will be able to manage regulatory CJIS workloads according to the CJIS Security Policy.

The workbook is intended to support AWS partners in the process of documenting their alignment posture with respect to CJIS security requirements. Furthermore, the security plan template provides AWS partner law enforcement agencies a systematic approach to documenting their implementation of CJIS security requirements for review and authorization. Finally, the workbook provides an overview of CJIS, AWS and AWS services, and the AWS/customer applicability of CJIS requirements.
