Staying Employed in the Classified Workplace: Good Professional Hygiene Avoids Security Clearance Snares


Too often, applicants or holders of security clearances only think of their livelihood AFTER they have received word from their department or agency that they have become a “security concern.” Based on his forty-one (41) years’ experience with federal security clearances, Tully Rinckey national security Partner Daniel Meyer and Associate Lachlan McKinion will discuss how to position oneself for maximum success in staying employed in a classified workspace.

Topics Include:

  • Learn to understand your role in the personnel security system from a former security officer’s perspective;
  • Understand how to prepare your personal and professional life to lessen your security liability in the classified workspace; and
  • Gain sight of what specific practices armor you against having to defend your eligibility for access to classified information.
