The Challenges of Cyber Security in Justice & Law Enforcement

Cyber Security in Justice and Law Enforcement is a complex blend of security, control, assurance and monitoring requirements that include the need to operate within and deal with the public, right up to the more extreme requirements around counter-terrorism information.

IT systems in this sector commonly need to deliver a high degree of security assurance and visibility and account for interconnection with everything from the intelligence community, the court and prison system and front line officers in attendance at scenes of crimes.

Information about investigations, intelligence and victims must be protected and yet accessible to a diverse community.

There are consequently regulatory needs of being part of government, legal demands for forensic soundness and related legislation surrounding data protection and privacy compliance.

The delivery of IT systems and applications to a largely mobile workforce; and the need to resist intrusions from a wide range of threats ranging from inquisitive members of the public, journalists and serious organised crime puts a strain on often slim budgets for IT systems and security.
