Developing trust between governments and the public is about more than just transparency, it’s also about ensuring the security and privacy of personal data now more than ever.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 20, 2019
NextRequest, the leading government technology SaaS solution for FOIA management, today announced it has successfully mapped to CJIS and the HIPAA Security Rule.
“Developing trust between governments and the public is about more than just transparency,” said Andy Hull, CTO of NextRequest. “It’s also about ensuring the security and privacy of personal data now more than ever. In that regard we’ve taken a giant step forward mapping NextRequest’s compliance controls to the HIPAA Security Rule and CJIS.”
In mapping to CJIS and the HIPAA Security Rule, NextRequest demonstrates its ongoing commitment to data security through the protection of confidential information of its customers and their constituents.
The Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) refers to a division of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Established in 1992, the division is currently the largest division of the FBI. CJIS monitors criminal activities in local and international communities using data provided by law enforcement. Their databases provide a centralized source of criminal justice information (CJI) to agencies around the country. Because of the confidential nature of the information, government agencies, cloud vendors, local agencies, and corporate networks who collect, transfer, record, store, and share CJI must meet the security standards set forth by CJIS.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets the security standard for protecting sensitive patient health data. Companies that deal with protected health information (PHI) must have physical, network, and process security measures in place to ensure HIPAA Compliance.
