Alternate Title: NSDD 268: PFIAB Worldwide Evaluation of the Procedures and Practices by Which Our Foreign Missions Protect Classified Information and Facilities
With the recent discovery of further security problems in the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and in other foreign missions, it is essential that we conduct a comprehensive survey of the security and counterintelligence policies, procedures and practices that are currently being employed to protect classified information and facilities. The conduct of diplomacy and intelligence activities essential to our national security can only be carried out in a working environment that is protected from invasive activities on the part of hostile intelligence services. The purpose of this directive is for the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board to develop recommendations regarding the process and policies by which foreign missions protect classified information and facilities.
