Michael Donlan: California DOJ OKs Microsoft Azure Gov’t for FBI Criminal Records Access

new-microsoft-logo_EMMicrosoft‘s government cloud offering is now available to law enforcement agencies in California after the state’s justice department established Microsoft Azure Government‘s compliance with federal data security and privacy regulations.

Michael Donlan, vice president of Microsoft’s U.S. state and local government business, said Wednesday on the company website that compliance covers standards under the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services division.

“This development builds on the 2013 agreement between California and Microsoft that established Microsoft’s Office 365 compliance with the FBI’s CJIS standards,” he writes.

With this new agreement, California agencies can now access criminal records and other criminal justice information on CJIS systems through Microsoft Azure Government, Donlan adds.

He notes that Microsoft has CJIS agreements with 11 other states.
