CJIS Audit Logging Requirements

Event Types

The following events shall be logged:

  1. Successful and unsuccessful system log-on attempts.

  2. Successful and unsuccessful attempts to use:

    1. access permission on a user account, file, directory or other system resource;
    2. create permission on a user account, file, directory or other system resource;

Definitely agree with the county selection stuff, looks far better

  • Caveat: it feels like a significant innovation for multi-jurisdiction selection (not lots of comparables or known patterns)
  • Could use some validation, how should we validate this selection technique?
  • Can we isolate and test w/
    • Possible test questions that ask same task:
      • Where have you lived in California?
      • Where do you have friends in California?
      • Where do you have family in California?
  • What would be the most proximate alternatives?
    • it'll probably be text or copy changes

Access Controls and Auditability


  • Default to requiring authentication, intentionally override where necessary
  • Default to checking for object or queryset permissions, intentionally override where necessary
  • Default to logging access and actions for later audit, override where necessary
  • Ensure maintainability by creating one well-known way to implement, and adding checks to ensure proper implementation

What do we want in our audit logs?


Event Refactor


  • ApplicationEvents are hyper focused on applicants. We need events focused on visitors
  • We Also need org user events
  • we want full funnel metrics (from visitor to applicants to followups and on)
  • We will need auditable events
  • types and uses of events are conflated
  • hard to know if where we send PII to mixpanel
You can’t perform that action at this time.
