Cloud technologies create FBI compliance issues

Cloud technologies are creating compliance problems for the FBI at the state level. Because of the security and privacy regulations for contractors working with the agency, regular state police officers have to jump through legal hoops to access FBI databases remotely to run checks on suspicious people from a laptop or their patrol car. The FBI requires a cloud provider to run criminal background checks on every one of its own employees in each location it wants a cloud service. Some states are already working with cloud providers to strike special compliance deals with the FBI so officers and contractors can earn special certification to interact with FBI databases through the cloud. Nextgov reports state agencies are now running special audits to make sure cloud contractors follow the FBI's regulations.
