ABSTRACT

Security Policy for Uniform Protection of Intelligence Processed in Automated Information Systems and Networks   [open pdf - 20KB]

The purpose of this directive is to establish long-term (year 2000) goals and near-term (year 1992) requirements intended to improve the security of U.S. intelligence processed in AISs, and networks with respect to its possible compromise (1) due to penetration by hostile intelligence services, (2) by otherwise legitimate users who gain access to data or processes for which they are not authorized, or (3) as a result of inadequate security design, implementation, or operation. The directive also assigns policy execution roles and responsibilities, and establishes a procedural framework within which they are to be implemented. Specific guidance is provided in the Security Manual for Uniform Protection of Intelligence Processed in Automated Information Systems and Networks (Security Manual), a supplement to this directive. Additional security measures may be established by the accrediting authority if deemed appropriate. Such measures should also be in accordance with other DCIDs listed in references 9 to 13 in Annex A of the Security Manual. The provisions contained in the Security Manual have the same force as this directive.
