CDSE Pulse: Special Access Programs (Volume 1, Issue 12)   [open pdf - 632KB]

From the Document: "Throughout our nation's history, our military and strategic advantages have depended upon the work of sensitive programs and operations. These Special Access Programs (SAPs) have revolutionized industries and created new technologies that help keep our nation secure. Executive Order 13526, 'Classified National Security Information,' defines a SAP as 'a program established for a specific class of classified information that imposes safeguarding and access requirements exceeding those normally required for information at the same classification level.' In other words, a SAP is a classified program with enhanced safeguarding and access requirements. SAPs are established only when the program is required by statute, or when a vulnerability or threat to specific information is discovered. SAPs also require an assigned nickname and/or code word and identification of any special handling procedures. They also use the standard classification levels: Top Secret, Secret, and Confidential."
