Creating a Positive, Pro-Security Culture
Are the members of your security team the “bad guys” in your organization? Creating the right company culture requires more than the popular “just-in-time” training. Security should be a habit – not a hindrance. Everyone needs to understand the importance of security in everything that you do.

TIPS OF THE TRADE
Before you send off those SF-86 questionnaires, it’s important to make sure that you review them for completeness. Any field that was filled out incorrectly or accidentally omitted must be marked as discrepant by the background investigator. These discrepancies must then be explained in his or her report – and sometimes corroborated through other sources and record checks.
Although minor errors are expected, larger ones can significantly slow down the clearance process. Become an SF-86 Master! Your organization will appreciate it.
