Chapter 8 Information System Security

Chapter 8 of the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) specifies

the security requirements and procedures for information systems that handle classified

information. The first Industrial Security Letter that the Defense Security Service issued in

2007 expanded on and clarified topics presented in chapter 8 of the NISPOM. It is important for

organizations with information systems that have been accredited for processing classified

information to read and implement the guidance provided in that Industrial Security Letter, in

addition to that in the NISPOM.

Secure Defense Consulting® Incorporated can support companies' compliance with the

NISPOM, including chapter 8. We can assist with the certification & accreditation process,

security education of information system users, and more. Please contact us to discuss your

situation and concerns.
