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:

Attendee’s full name
Date of Birth
Social Security Number*
Rank or Grade
Security Clearance Level and Access Authorization
Date of Visit: October 12-13, 2011
Purpose of Visit: AFCEA Intelligence Symposium
NRO POC: Diane Rivera

*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.
