State and local governments are becoming frequent targets for cyberattackers. As attacks increase in size, scale, and damage, compliance with government security and privacy policies is becoming more stringent to keep government institutions and citizens safe.
The CJIS Security Policy was created to set rules around cyber activity that could proactively protect against data breaches on government institutions. However, the 253-page document is intimidating to most IT and security teams. For those teams already dealing with limited time, resources, and funding, the CJIS Security Policy is anything but light reading.
This guide was created to serve as a shortcut to the hefty CJIS Security Policy and to be used as a helpful resource for institutions that are overwhelmed with the complexities of CJIS compliance. It also includes parameters that should be set for government third-party vendors who provide support to institutions and are granted remote access – one of the most successful ways hackers use to infiltrate organizational networks.
There is support available, and CJIS compliance is possible. Download this guide to learn:
