The CJIS ACE Compliance Seal is the Closest Thing to CJIS Certification
The FBI does not certify anything as “CJIS Compliant.” That is, no official process exists to achieve “CJIS Certification” like in other areas of government and industry (e.g. IEEE, ANSI, etc.).
But don’t worry, our audit and compliance experts (known as ACEs) have developed the next best thing for anyone who deals with criminal justice information…
The Official CJIS ACE Compliance Seal
The CJIS ACE Compliance Seal is awarded to those that have demonstrated an executive commitment to the criticality of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy and have real-world working knowledge of compliance.
Whether you’re with a criminal justice agency, a vendor who sells products/services to the criminal justice community, a business that does fingerprinting on new hires, or even an agency going through IT consolidation — you need to be compliant with the Security Policy mandates. And the ACEs can help you do that.
The CJIS ACEs have established the first and only industry standard process for Security Policy compliance.
Take advantage of CJIS ACE services and demonstrate to others that you’re proactive and committed to security compliance.
The Compliance Seal, pictured below, is given exclusively to criminal justice agencies who have completed the CJIS ACE Compliance process.
Prove Your Trustworthiness with CJIS ACE
As you may remember, establishing a compliance profile provides your agency’s executive leadership with invaluable insight into your specific operational and technological needs.
The ACEs combine the results of the CJIS ACE Compliance Profile with a CJIS ACE Mitigation Strategy and Plan. This approach provides a comprehensive, customized, and cost-effective road map for process improvement and policy compliance.
Upon earning the CJIS ACE Compliance Seal, companies demonstrate their commitment to FBI CJIS Security Policy compliance. Their current and prospective clients will then recognize the expertise and industry standard work of the CJIS ACE team.
Criminal justice leaders can now look for, even demand, the CJIS ACE Compliance Seal from their vendors/contractors. They want to be assured that the company they’re contracting with understands and is committed to being compliant. It’s the closest thing to having CJIS certification.
So there it is….a little background on the CJIS ACE Compliance Seal — the only assurance of FBI CJIS Security Policy compliance commitment and understanding in the industry!
Until next time – be safe,
