Any individual whose job or position requires him or her to come in contact with classified or sensitive documents will be required to have a security clearance. The specific level of clearance will be determined based on the individual's position, as well as his or her assigned duties and responsibilities, and level of access. A security clearance is required in certain military positions, as a federal contractor, as part of specific federal agencies and in matters pertaining to national security, as it is essential to verify an individual's loyalty, trustworthiness, reliability, integrity, commitment, character and more.
An individual who is believed to have certain character flaws, a propensity towards personal or professional misconduct, a record of criminal activity or other similar indiscretions is not someone who is considered qualified to be in possession of key military or other national secrets.
