OMB Deputy Director updates on new security clearance benchmarks, vetting goals
The security clearance process is in the spotlight. But the reality is the transformative effort to improve the security clearance process has been underway for the past several years, with significant new benchmarks announced just this month at the recent U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing on Capitol Hill.
Jason Miller, Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget and chair of the Performance Accountability Council Program Management Office discussed the recently announced metrics and reforms within the security clearance process, and how PAC-PMO is providing accountability and a management framework for the government to achieve its aggressive timeline goals.
In the second half of the program, Lindy Kyzer, ClearanceJobs, and Sean Bigley, legal counsel, discuss the Airman Teixeira case and what security cleared professionals and security officers should expect in the aftermath of the latest major breach.
