Talk:Classified information

doesn't match what www.clearedconnections.com uses[edit]

The www.clearedconnections.com job site uses:

  • Confidential
  • Secret
  • Top Secret
  • Top Secret/EBI
  • Top Secret/SBI
  • Top Secret/SSBI
  • Top Secret/SCI
  • Top Secret/SCI with CI Polygraph
  • Top Secret/SCI with Full Scope Polygraph

So that would be 9 levels, at least in practice. (plus "unclassified" of course) Are they just being messed up, or have they summed things up pretty well?

A: No there are only three levels of clearances - confidential, secret, and top-secret. The information after the "/" tells you what type of background check was required. TS/SCI with Counter-intel polygraphs require a different type of investigation from the TS/Single Scope Background Investigation. The different investigations are usually because you need to have access to different types of information or have special intelligence risks involved that need to be examined for conflicts.

I have not seen EBI lately - but it means extended background check.

TS/SBI = TS + Full lifestyle (full scope) poly (the super procto of intel clearances)

TS/SSBI - Single Scope Background Investigation - standard TS clearance*

  • From http://www.fas.org/sgp/backchek.htm: "Under the provisions of National Security Directive 63 (NSD-63) of 21 October 1991, the Single Scope Background Investigation (SBI) was instituted as the minimum scope and standard for all agencies and departments for access for Collateral Top Secret (TS) / National Security Information and Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) or for participation in certain other Special Access Required (SAR) and Extremely Sensitive Information (ESI) programs, replacing both the BI and SBI." Thus TS/SBBI is not the minimum protocol for TS and TS/SBI has been supplanted.

SCI - Sensitive Compartmented Information - additional checking done after the TS/SSBI is completed.

TS/SCI/CI - Counter intelligence poly - should be obvious what's the issue here...

Finally - unclassified isn't a sensitivity... that is the default for information.
