Purpose: This course prepares you to make adjudicative decisions consistent with ICD 704 and Security Executive Agent Directives (SEADs) requirements. We will review the personnel security process and present approaches to enhance best practices and reciprocity across the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense (DoD) organizations authorized to grant access and adjudicate for Sensitive Compartmented Information. We will also review the personnel security process and identify what should be considered when upgrading an individual to another clearance and/or access level. This is an excellent seminar for security professionals who want to better understand the process behind adjudication decisions.
