    No no no, not the one you're thinking about.

    I'm talking about mine. I just got my classified security clearance. It's interesting, the way our security officer explained the document I signed was basically if the government catches someone selling or giving away sensitive information, they can use that document and get you on breach of contract.

    Anyhow, I'm officially under contract with the United States Government... I wonder when that signing bonus is going to kick in?

    Secret #1: The government wastes a lot of money.

    Hmm. Perhaps your clearance level isn't very high after all. :D

    Are you dealing with things that are considered at the level of "Classified" or did you just use that word.

    Also..if you sell or give away sensitive information, you have a lot more to worry about than breach of contract.

    I have access to all things classified, but nothing that is "Top Secret."

    Our company doesn't have a top-secret cleared facility anyhow.

    Of course, as is the policy, it's all on a NTK basis.

    And yes, I realize I have more than breach of contract to worry about, but I found that portion of my briefing interesting. Regardless, I'm not going to be selling us out.

    There is no such level as "Classified." There is Confidential (which is rarely used nowadays), Secret, and Top Secret.
