• Requirement

    Conduct [Assignment: organization-defined enhanced personnel screening] for individuals and reassess individual positions and access to CUI [Assignment: organization-defined frequency].

  • Discussion

    Personnel security is the discipline that provides a trusted workforce based on an evaluation or assessment of conduct, integrity, judgment, loyalty, reliability, and stability. The extent of the vetting is commensurate with the level of risk that individuals could bring about by their position and access to CUI. For individuals accessing Federal Government facilities and systems, the Federal Government employs resources, information, and technology in its vetting processes to ensure a trusted workforce. These screening processes may be extended all or in part to persons accessing federal information, including CUI that is resident in nonfederal systems and organizations through contractual vehicles or other agreements established between federal agencies and nonfederal organizations. Examples of enhanced personnel screening for security purposes include additional background checks. Personnel reassessment activities reflect applicable laws, executive orders, directives, policies, regulations, and specific criteria established for the level of access required for assigned positions.
