Cyber Security Clearance Level

Postby Shorty » Tue May 22, 2018 8:08 pm

Do any of you work in Cyber Security? What is your clearance level? I'm registering for a Cyber Security career fair and it asked my clearance level. Here are the choices:

Security Clearance Level
-----------------------------
Confidential
Secret
Top Secret
Top Secret/EBI
Top Secret/SSBI
Top Secret/SCI
Top Secret/SCI with Polygraph
Top Secret/SCI with Counter Intelligence Polygraph
Top Secret/SCI with Full Scope Polygraph (Lifestyle)

I found this site that talks about three levels. Are any of you Secret or Top Secret?

https://cybersecurityportal.com/resourc ... learances/

CONFIDENTIAL
This is the very basic level of security clearance. Most personnel enrolled in the military have access to it. Basically, anyone having confidential access will be dealing with material that can cause measurable damage to the national security if exposed to the world. Confidential Security Clearance will require you to go through the following:

Thorough background check
Verification of criminal, employment and education records.
Screening of partners/spouses and immediate relatives
Credit checks
Fingerprint checks
All Confidential clearance requires a re-check every 15 years.

SECRET
Secret security clearance means that you will have access to material that can cause grave damage to the national security if exposed to the world. You will have to go through the following:

All checks included in Confidential security
All Secret Clearance Checks requires a re-check every 10 years.

TOP SECRET
As the name suggest, it is the top tiered security clearance check. It means you will have access to material that can cause a disastrous damage to national security if exposed to the world. You will be required to go through the following:

All basic security clearances covered in confidential and secret clearances
A thorough field check
Polygraph test (may be required)
Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI)
Foreign and travel assets will be inspected thoroughly
Your Co-workers, employers and neighbors or any references you provide will be interviewed
Top Secret security clearances checks require re-check every 5 years.

If I was (which I am not saying I am), I wouldn't be allowed to tell you.



Jokes aside, your comment reminded me of this game I used to play quite a bit of as a kid. Thanks for filling my mind full o' happy memories & good luck at the job fair.

As a Radioman (RM2) I had top secret crypto clearance in the Navy. The one step above secret was in order to repair and maintain top secret decoding equipment. I also was required to wear a 45 in port when I went to COMSTA (Communications Station) to pick up ships messages. Also I was required to have a clearance equivilent to any marked messages I carried between ship and shore.

I thought you said in the distant past that you served in the Coast Guard. Now you say the Navy. They ain't the same thing.

I have never uttered the words "Coast Guard" on this forum ever. You are mixing your thoughts with the words of others again. I spend 4 years and 12 days in the US Navy WESTPAC and saw 20 countries besides the
USA, and saw all states except Alaska.

Roy has always said he was in the Navy. Pretty sure it was Uncle Jimbo who talked about his experiences in the Coast Guard.

Maybe it was Sandi whom I was thinking about.
