Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) Compliance Audit Services

Backbone Consultants specializes in the performance of Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) readiness assessments and compliance audits. ALPR technical audits are ideal for government municipalities or commercial installations looking to comply with applicable legislative requirements and assess their implemented solutions against security best practices.


Many jurisdictions require independent ALPR compliance audits to be performed; Backbone’s certified IT auditors have the technical expertise to perform this body of work in the most efficient manner possible. Interpreting legislation and mapping controls can be a daunting task, however, with our proprietary Risk and Controls Matrix (RCM), compliance to these requirements becomes much more transparent. Backbone’s ALPR compliance service offering includes:


Scope Review: Understanding the technology implemented, number of deployed ALPR units (mobile or stationary), supporting infrastructure, and user administration are paramount to undertaking the ALPR compliance audit body of work. Backbone’s IT specialists will partner with your internal stakeholders to scope the engagement and request supporting documentation.


Legislative Compliance: Backbone's ALPR assessment framework allows us to effectively assess varying compliance requirements regardless of jurisdiction. Legislative compliance regularly includes, but not limited to: ALPR policy/procedure, data management, application access, and audit logging. Applicable data privacy and disclosure requirements will be assessed to ensure data collected and public data requests meet federal and state privacy requirements and data disclosure statutes.


CJIS Compliance: Backbone provides a comprehensive solution that takes into consideration CJIS framework requirements by evaluating your ALPR solution including application, database, and operating system layers. CJIS focal points of our readiness assessment and compliance audit work for ALP include but are not limited to: access control, media protection, information integrity, configuration management, security awareness, and incident response.


Audit Reporting: Upon the completion of audit activities, Backbone will present the client with a draft report and discuss any non-compliance with legislative requirements and any CJIS control gaps identified. Additionally, our report will provide cost effective remediation recommendations in the event compliance gaps are noted.
