The level and length of your security clearance may vary greatly depending on your position, the confidential information you have access to, and whether you are still employed at the company, government agency or organization who originally hired you. Those individuals who have obtained either a confidential, secret or top secret security clearance from the Department of Defense or other government agency are generally required to have their eligibility reviewed every 5, 10 or 15 years. The reason behind this is to ensure all those with security clearance have not been involved in any activities that would put their eligibility, and thus the confidential information they are privy to, at risk.
With your security clearance comes a level of responsibility. Should you wish to preserve your clearance and your position, it is important that you are not only aware of the activities which could make you ineligible to retain your existing security clearance, but that you take measures to maintain your qualifications at all times.
