Microsoft enters security agreement with Oregon CJIS Systems Agency

Microsoft has finalised a security control agreement with the Oregon Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Systems Agency.

The new agreement will allow state and local law enforcement in Oregon to use Microsoft’s hyper-scale Office 365, Azure and CRM for Government cloud computing solutions with Criminal Justice Information.

Major Tom M. Worthy of Oregon State Police said: “This agreement gives Oregon agencies additional hosting options that enhance security while meeting their business requirements pertaining to Criminal Justice Information.”

The partnership was announced at the Oregon CJIS User Conference, which took place last week in Bend, Oregon. Attendees at the event were able to see a demonstration of the Microsoft Advanced Patrol Platform (MAPP), which is equipped with specialised video management capabilities.

The MAPP platform supports military, law enforcement and emergency workers in the tracking of case management performance and crime statistics. This enables a new level of transparency between agencies.

Rochelle Eichner, director for Risk & Compliance for Microsoft’s Azure Government Engineering team, said: “Through dialogue with Oregon law enforcement, it was established that with the new challenges law enforcement is confronted with in their daily responsibility of protecting people, trust and technology are uniting as important standards for selecting solutions to advance the effectiveness of public safety.”
