Security Clearance Certification
All attendees must be cleared for Top Secret, and currently indoctrinated for SI and TK access at the time you register.**
Attendees WITH IC blue or green badges do not need to pass clearances.***
Attendees WITHOUT IC blue or green badges must arrange for their Special Security Officer (SSO) or Contractor Special Security Officer (CSS) to send an SSO- or CSSS- originated clearance certification message to the NRO.
The clearance message must include the following:
*Authority for soliciting Social Security Numbers (SSAN) is Executive Order 9397. SSAN’s will be used to identify attendees within the NRO’s access approval system. Disclosure of a SSAN is voluntary, but failure to do so may result in delay or denial of access to NRO facilities.
**The NRO does not grant interim TK access--applicants for registration must be cleared TS//SI/TK. The NRO will not provide any "read-in/read-out" security services.
***Symposium attendees whether IC badged or not must process through the visitor center to obtain a conference badge.
Security Officers should pass clearances via:
Timely passage of your clearance/accesses is important. If your clearance is not passed as required, you will not be able to attend the symposium. Deadline for submitting clearances is September 12, 2011.
