Menard Computing Suite and BaaS Now CJIS Compliant

Working with Florida’s Departments of Law Enforcement and Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles, NWRDC’s Menard Computing Suite is now approved to house Criminal Justice Information Systems (CJIS) data. Administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the CJIS Security Policy integrates presidential directives, federal laws, FBI directives and the criminal justice community’s APB decisions along with nationally recognized guidance from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This year long project required NWRDC staff to complete additional training and background checks as well as adjustments to the center’s building access procedures. With the completion of this project, NWRDC customers can now utilize CJIS compliant data center floor space.

In addition to our floor space service, NWRDC’s Backup as a Service also successfully completed a CJIS review. Available as a flexible on-demand service, BaaS provides customers advanced control over their backup and recovery processes. With data encrypted both in transit and at rest, you can easily manage your backup environment through a secure self-service portal, where your team can configure backup schedules, select retention periods, view job progress/alerts, and perform restores. Available at multiple data center locations, NWRDC’s BaaS offering provides a secure, cost effective means to protect your data.
