  CJIS Security Policy 5.2 Released 8/9/13 
CJIS Security Policy 5.2 has been released and includes several key changes.  Be sure your IT personnel and TAC are aware of this new release. The purpose of CJIS policy is to:
Provide guidance for the creation, viewing, modification, transmission, dissemination, storage, and destruction of CJI data. 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.

Key additions to 5.2:
  1. Personal firewall/antivirus software update requirement.
  2. Employment of white lists and black lists as an alternative control. 
  3. Devices that have been rooted or altered not authorized.
  4. Ensure that CJIS is only transferred between CJI authorized applications or storage areas of the device.
  5. Mobile Device Management service with a centralized administration capable of at least:
    • Remote locking of device
    • Remote wiping of device
    • Setting and locking of device

The use of smartphones, laptops, PDA's and net books which are used for criminal justice information and services must be compliant with this policy.  A mobile device management system helps achieve compliance and information security.  With the "bring your own device" (BYOD) phenomenon, this is important. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement chose Airwatch to manage its mobile devices.
