GSM System Architecture

Allow them to monitor and store data gathered only during work hours unless employees explicitly agree for their movement or health data to be monitored during off hours. Natural disasters and mechanical failure can cause delays in the reliable movement of items. Classified items lost, stolen or exposed during shipment pose a threat. When time permits, escorts should leave the train at all stops and perform a physical inspection of the protective measures (seals, locks, etc) applied to the classified items on the shipment cars. Without these controls, many would have a hard time sleeping. Step 2 – Call your assistant in for a brief meeting and have them inspect each location in the order provided. The result is the ability to maintain the security clearance for 10 years as long as he didn’t have too long of a break between jobs requiring a secret clearance. In addition to identification, a courier briefing, and notification to maintain accountability of the classified material at all times, should be coordinated with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Prior arrangements with the air carrier help them understand the unique requirements for shipping classified material and will better meet the requests of the consignor. Air travel also has inherent risks including: late gate departures and arrivals, crowded terminals, and maintenance problems significantly threaten the ability of an escort to keep a close eye on the cargo hold. Those escorting classified material via trains, over the road vehicles, and air carriers should be aware of inconsistencies or events during the shipment that could negatively impact the security of the item. Text in blue represents NISPOM Conforming Change 1 material and text in red is Change 2 material. The volume of material transported on any given day is staggering. The only way I was able to hold anxiety back is to recall my end of day process and determine with conviction that I had indeed turned it off. Well, the dedicated security professional understands the need for process, procedure, and end of day check lists.

Imagine how the anxiety increase if you can’t recall whether or not you secured the security container, removed classified information from the printer, or set alarms. Here planning plays an imperative role that helps all the stakeholders to understand the technical solutions and gather entire critical information of unique architectural aspects. If that’s you, then you are a technical expert and know the business of protecting classified information. Then you have an idea of what to change and it should also help you as to how you should change it for the better. This doesn’t mean that universities and other organizations who are embracing this model have zero IT and security staff. However, there is no insurance for damage to national security. There is no useable beach in Panama City. Depending on the size of the airport, urgency and threat level, the arrangements and coordination made with TSA can help make negotiating through to the secure area easier.

Coordination with railroad employees will significantly reduce the challenges while helping to strengthen security. That may be appropriate if you know how spending and manpower affects security outputs, but that is not the case. It may be difficult to find someone interested in the job who wouldn’t be insistent on attacking the benefits programs he or she is supposed to be administering. Highly sensitive items, urgency and threat may require a carrier to provide enough escorts to work around the clock shifts. No matter how dependable a carrier’s track record, the government approver, sender, and hand carrier should do everything possible to transport classified information while mitigating any risk of loss or compromise. Overnight escorts should remain alert for security violations, theft, piracy, pilferage, hi-jacking, damage or other incidences that could jeopardize the shipment and compromise the classified information. ISDs should avoid terms that are proprietary or otherwise favor a particular vendor, or that create a bias toward a particular security technology or mechanism versus other, competing techniques that already exist or might be developed in the future.
