This is an official document sponsored by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) which provides guidelines for law enforcement executives in the securing of their IT infrastructure.
It is a commonly accepted practice and requirement in law enforcement to secure the chain of evidence gathered in what is generally termed “The Lockup” which is where physical evidence is stored. As more evidence is becoming digitized, the need to ensure that the evidence chain is protected from compromise is paramount.
This paper states that the chief of police is ultimately responsible for the integrity of the digitized evidence chain. It also implies that the police chief could be held liable for the compromise of digitized evidence.
NCA can help law enforcement with a security audit that will validate that your IT environment is secure from potential breaches.
