LEVELS: Security Clearances

National security information that requires protection against unauthorized use and disclosure are classified at one of the three levels herein;

  1. Top Secret Clearance: Top Secret is applied to information that reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security if disclosed to unauthorized sources. This level needs to be reinvestigated every 5 years.
  2. Secret Clearance: Secret is applied to information that reasonably could be expected to cause serious damage to the national security if disclosed to unauthorized sources. This level is reinvestigated every 10 years.
  3. Confidential Clearance: Confidential is applied to information that reasonably could be expected to cause damage to the national security if disclosed to unauthorized sources. The vast majority of military personnel are given this very basic level of clearance. This level needs to be reinvestigated every 15 years.

Clearance Reinvestigation

Reinvestigations are more important than the original investigation because those individuals who have held clearances longer are more likely to be working with increasingly critical information.
