"Technology has experienced a fast improvement during the last decade. Any type of device with network access capabilities can communicate with each other. A hyperconnected world is emerging easing the exchange of services and inforamtion, but also bringing some backwards. Criminal organization are targeting Internet of Things devices, equipped with monitoring and surveillance capabilities, to perform attacks against other organizations or to collect, buy and sell information. There is still a lot of research to do in this area. The develop of new devices with different manufacturers competing to put any device as soon as possible in the market is lacking required security controls. In addition to the heterogeneity and limited resources, it is making them more vulnerable. Internet of Things are capable of collect and generat a high amount of data. Development of secure architecture that protect confidentiality and integrity is required through the data flow process. The communication process from a National Crime Reporting System for a Latin American country's National Police is assessed. Moreover, security controls to protect the data and the information system are proposed following the recommendations provided by a security framework."
