Overview[edit | edit source]
This Directive was to establish uniform security guidance and requirements for ensuring adequate protection of Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) and information used in Special Access Programs (SAPs). SCI refers to a method by which certain types of classified information must be handled. It applies primarily to information regarding national security issues or programs that have not yet been publicly acknowledged. SAPs are programs that require extraordinary security requirements.
