Law Enforcement Data Security

Law Enforcement Data Security

Accelerate crime response and prevention while complying with regulations and protecting privacy.

Law enforcement agencies around the world are adopting new technologies to improve response rates, streamline investigations, prevent crime, and improve collaboration. New technologies range from cameras and sensors providing real-time data and incident records to the adoption of cloud and big data to help manage high volumes of data, understand patterns, and help investigations.

But the digitalization comes at the same time recent cases of data breaches at law enforcement organizations have exposed records that jeopardize investigations and citizen privacy. Legislation and mandates at the federal, state, and local levels bring new complexities to compliance and raise the importance of following best practices to protect sensitive data.
