Athena is a long-time supporter of the IJIS Institute and its mission to unite the private and public sectors to improve critical information sharing for those who provide public safety and administer justice in our communities. Athena is firmly committed to the development and adoption of industry standards to improve system interoperability. Athena staff have worked with the IJIS Institute since its inception and have provided hundreds of volunteer hours to help the Institute achieve its mission. Our work with the IJIS Institute enables us to stay abreast of industry developments so that we may better serve our clients.
Athena believes that the FBI CJIS N-DEx system represents a major breakthrough in information sharing and is a powerful resource for public safety and justice agencies. We fully support this important national initiative and the use of the N-DEx IEPD as a national standard. Athena provides a broad range of services to assist agencies in connecting to N-DEx directly or via regional or state systems. Athena stands ready to help – from advice and planning through implementation and support of secure network connections.
