Law enforcement needs timely and secure access to services that provide data wherever and whenever for stopping and reducing crime. In response to these needs, the Advisory Policy Board (APB) recommended to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division authorize the expansion of the existing security management structure in 1998. Administered through a shared management philosophy, the CJIS Security Policy contains information security requirements, guidelines, and agreements reflecting the will of law enforcement and criminal justice agencies for protecting the sources, transmission, storage, and generation of Criminal Justice Information (CJI).

NAVIGATING THE CLOUD

whitePaper |

The advent of cloud computing was supposed to mark the beginning of the end for license compliance worries. Service providers would simply provision the computing resources needed from remote servers — and be charged accordingly. No hassle. No confusion. No inadvertent piracy. And no legal jeopardy. To date, little practical guidance has been available on why and how to deploy SAM in a cloud environment. This whitepaper aims to fill a void and provide guidance on challenges organizations face in successfully integrating and performing SAM within their cloud computing environments. Cloud computing takes many forms to serve diverse needs in the marketplace. And while it solves some license compliance challenges, it also creates new ones. That is where software asset management comes in

Big Data, Communities and Ethical Resilience: A Framework for Action

whitePaper |

This document offers a framework for thinking and action for big data community resilience projects. In our conversations, we focused on how future projects might avoid the failures of previous data-oriented community undertakings. Of primary importance is to focus on people-centered, community-driven approaches. The discourse of big data and community resilience often excludes local participation by less powerful or technically literate populations. As a result, external experts may reduce complex social problems like community resilience to terms that are suited to technological solutions. This crowds out local knowledge, participation and agency, which undermines trust, social connectedness and resilience. Clear public policy and corporate governance frameworks are needed to foster a generative and inclusive environment that is conducive to local communities participating in their own data projects. Human skill is a key element of effective long-term data-driven projects. This makes local human collaboration an essential component of data projects for resilience. To enable greater local skills development and engagement, we suggest a combination of using open standards for data, common tools for the analytical components and educational workshops that develop data skills in the local community. To ensure the effectiveness of more community-oriented data projects, a set of ethical guidelines should be drafted at the beginning - rather than considering ethics and privacy merely as a “compliance process” at the end of a project. We hope this framework will serve as a provocation to consider the many possible human impacts of data projects much earlier in their design.
