In the course of performing on classified defense contracts, exchange of classified information is inevitable. While, the movement of classified information outside of a secure environment is to be kept to a minimum, there are times it must be moved in fulfillment of requirements.
As the senior industrial security manager in CDCs, the FSO leads the security program designed to protect classified information and prevent unauthorized disclosure. While working in the secure environment, contractors protect classified information under their control and cleared employees protect classified information entrusted to them.
Prior to the start of a classified meeting either the government sponsor or the contractor representative should provide a security briefing notifying attendees of the classification of information to be discussed, whether or not taking notes is permitted and if so, how they will be controlled. For example, when classified notes are permitted, they will have to be properly marked, introduced into accountability and prepared for dissemination (hand carry with the attendee or mailed at a later date). The presentation is controlled to prevent the inadvertent and unauthorized release. Each attendee should also be reminded to remove any cell phones or other electronic devices.
In the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM), we have a similar package "reveal". Security specialists, document control professionals, facility security officers and others in possessing facilities may receive classified information, depending on the contract. Part of the receipt is the critical inspection of the package during the integration process.
As they unwrap the package, the inspector is orienting themselves to better understand what they should be receiving. This begins by inspecting the package physically, then comparing the contents with the receipt. They are also searching for evidence of tampering or to otherwise to inspect that there has been no compromise of classified material since leaving the sender’s organization.
I also recommend using current NISPOM for security training and ISP® and ISOC certification.
