I am currently preparing to publish my new book, "How to Win U.S. Government Contracts and Classified Work", it's basically a total revision of "DoD Security Clearance and Contracts Guidebook". Chapter Five reviews the Executive Orders and regulations relating to Classification Markings and there is some good information from all sources. 

I believe this is fundamental to the profession of anyone working on classified contracts. Understanding why and how information is classified is vital to knowing exactly what to protect and how. There are a few hard and fast rules for classifying information.

It is a fantastic idea to maintain a data set of security breaches, violations, reports of compromise or suspected compromise. However, this data rarely leaves their office. Because of the sensitive nature, it is held closely either for fear of retribution or fear of embarrassment. In truth, there is no retribution for security violation reports and information contained could be very valuable for security awareness. The security manager will probably have information detailing the frequency of violations, the persons committing the violations, resolutions and training to correct the behavior. This security manager could use the information to specifically train the business unit to inform them of the infraction, as well as provide details for the annual security awareness training.
