Involvement in certain types of outside employment or activities is of security concern if it poses a conflict with an individual's security responsibilities and could create an increased risk of unauthorized disclosure of classified information.
Conditions that could raise a security concern and may be disqualifying include any service, whether compensated, volunteer, or employment with:
1. A foreign country;
2. Any foreign national;
3. A representative of any foreign interest; or
4. Any foreign, domestic, or international organization or person engaged in analysis, discussion, or publication of material on intelligence, defense, foreign affairs, or protected technology.
Conditions that could mitigate security concerns include:
1. Evaluation of the outside employment or activity indicates that it does not pose a conflict with an individual's security responsibilities or
2. The individual terminates the employment or discontinues the activity upon being notified that it is in conflict with his or her security responsibilities.
