ONCE I GET MY CLEARANCE ELIGIBILITY, CAN I SEE ALL CLASSIFIED
No! Access to any classified information depends on the level of clearance
eligibility you have (Confidential, Secret or Top Secret) and the information
you need to know to do your job. This is called the need-to-know principle.
- With a Confidential clearance eligibility, you have access solely to that
Confidential information which you actually need-to-know to do your job.
- Similarly, a Secret clearance eligibility enables access to Secret and
Confidential information on a need-to-know basis.
- And, a Top Secret clearance eligibility enables access to Top Secret, Secret
or Confidential information that you actually need-to-know to do your job.
Your organization’s management determines what classified information you need
to get your job done.
