Security, Storage and Privacy
Vigilant Solutions maintains strict controls to ensure data security and privacy. The only way to link personally identifiable information like a name, address, or face to anonymous data records is to obtain access to a state’s Department of Motor Vehicles database. That access is currently restricted by federal law via the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act (DPPA), and carries stiff fines and federal prison penalties for any violation.
We store LPR data on secure servers in Virginia. Our provider hosts many Fortune 500 and government servers and provides redundant power sources, redundant fiber connectivity, redundant disk arrays, environmental monitoring, secure access control, physical escorts for onsite visitors, multiple diesel fuel backup generators, active fire prevention and suppression, and onsite system administrators and engineers. Alternatively, we can set-up onsite servers as needed.
Only credentialed law enforcement officers with a valid Originating Agency Identifier (ORI) number issued by the Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) may access the data on the hosted server. Vigilant Solutions is compliant with all relevant requirements set forth in the FBI-CJIS Security Policy.
