Will you accept this policy update? 🌹

Ladies and Gentlemen,

With the most dramatic version yet, the newest edition of the CJIS Security Policy, 5.9.4, hit the streets on Leap Day. You may be feeling stressed and overwhelmed with all of the new changes happening, especially if you have an audit coming up soon. You may even be thinking “This changes everything”.

We get it, we’ve been there, and we’re here to help you with your CJIS journey.

The updated control families, sanctionable THIS October, are:

  • Audit and Accountability (AU)

  • Physical and Environmental Control (PE)

  • System and Communications Control (SC)

  • Planning (PL)

  • Contingency Planning (CP)

  • Risk Assessment (RA)

Our team can help you understand these new controls, through a CJIS ACE Assessment. Some of the benefits of this assessment include, but are not limited to:

  • Preparing for your audit by increasing your knowledge on the modernization and new controls

  • Gaining a customized knowledge transfer on:

    • What the requirements are

    • What applies to you

    • Are you meeting the requirements

    • How to mitigate non-compliance

  • Obtaining a CJIS Insight profile to track your compliance levels in an interactive and color coded way, which helps with centralizing documentation and turnover knowledge loss

  • Receiving ongoing support from your assessor even after the engagement

  • Developing confidence in your agencies compliance levels and CJIS understanding

  • Working with CJIS ACE! As a team we have over 150 years of combined experience in CJIS including being audited, conducting CJIS Audits, and helping write the CJIS requirements.

If you’re a vendor, we can work with you to navigate how the requirements apply to you, your clients, and your products resulting in a CJIS Ready Seal, the first and only industry standard to demonstrate a commitment to CJIS compliance.

Can I steal you for a second to chat some more? Send me an email today and let’s schedule a one-on-one.

Talk soon,

Edith Kowalik
