SAVER TechNote: Network Monitoring Tools [March 2015]   [open pdf - 429KB]

"Network monitoring tools are software applications designed to monitor and protect networks from intrusions and malicious traffic as well as monitor the overall network health and performance. Law enforcement agencies use these tools to protect systems and databases, including records management systems, computer-aided dispatch systems, and gang and fugitive intelligence databases, which contain information that must be kept secure and confidential per Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Security Policy and various other legal mandates. Network monitoring tools are also used by fire departments to protect their databases, which often include medical information that must be secured based on the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy rules."
