Strengthening Security and Compliance Posture through Cyber Resilience in Public Safety
Understanding the meaning of a comprehensive, effective, risk-based compliance strategy is the first step in achieving it. Industry standards and regulatory mandates are put in place to ensure organizations take stock of their potential risk and build out a robust security strategy to prevent against cyberattacks and potential data breaches.
The ability to securely exchange information is vital for law enforcement agencies. Timely information about suspects can make or break investigations and either help or hinder emergency response. But if that information is shared or stored insecurely, data leaks can occur and prevent police from doing their jobs effectively.
Without a strong cybersecurity posture (and security controls in place), public safety agencies are unlikely to be compliant with the regulations laid out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Criminal Justice Information Services division (CJIS) As well, without considering compliance and applicable regulations, any security strategy is likely lacking.
