Sonny Margat, Information Security Officcer, and Maria Cranston, Manager, CLETS Administration Section, both with the California Department of Justice, will be on hand at the 2019 MISAC Annual Conference to present a breakout session relative to CLETS - the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System.  The two will be presenting on the CLETS Upgrade Application with a cloud component and the process itself.  They will also be talking about the most common technical issues identified in the last FBI audit cycle.  


In addition to Cranston being the CLETS Manager, she is also CLETS Executive Secretary to the CLETS Advisory Committee.  She has been with the Department of Justice for 32 years and the manager over CAS for 14 years.  CAS is responsible for interpreting the CLETS policies and FBI CJIS Security Policies, reviewing downstream agency upgrades as it relates to criminal justice information through the application process and much more.


Mangat has over 15 years in information security. He has been with the DOJ for over 8 years, having recently returned to the department from CalPERS where he was the Information Security Section Chief.  Mangat is familiar with the CLETS upgrade application process having been the information security lead for the DOJ for several years, helping ensure a strong security posture.


He has a Master's degree in computer science and had worked for one of the first generation cloud providers.

In addition, MISAC member Greg Park (City of Livermore PD) will be moderating the session.  Park was recently appointed to the Attorney General's CLETS Advisory Committee.
