Being a naturalized American and having done consulting for some law enforcement agencies before and knowing that a lot of my own background information is in FBI’s databases I wouldn’t want them to handle this data any differently.

In this article “The FBI remains committed to using technology in its information-sharing processes, but not at the sacrifice of the security of the information with which it has been entrusted,” Stephen Fischer Jr., a spokesman for the FBI’s CJIS division said today in an email to Computerworld.

Fischer’s comments come less than two months after the Los Angeles Police Department canceled a planned migration to Google Apps because it said the cloud service was not compliant with CJIS security requirements.”
