Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) Design & Construction

This event qualifies for 24 CPEs

After attending this unclassified Workshop, students will be able to oversee design and construction of a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) which meets official government requirements for a secure area where classified information is handled.


The stringent physical security requirements; such as, access control systems, thickness of doors, the strength of concrete and the use of alarms, and acoustical controls which prevent eavesdropping, information exposure or “jamming”, and surveillance prevention will be discussed.  The use of electronic media within the facility will also be explored.
