The Public Interest Declassification Board submitted 14 recommendations to President Barack Obama at the end of November. The suggestions cover everything from moving out of the three-tiered classification system to a two-tiered process to strengthening the National Archives and Records Administration's National Declassification Center to giving federal employees "safe harbor" protection if they adhere to a rigorous risk management process in how they perform their classification duties.
Even as he enjoys the warm sun and beaches of his native Hawaii, President Obama faces a New Year's Eve deadline this week regarding the fate of more than 400 million pages of documents that have been classified since the Cold War era. The president is expected to sign an executive order creating a National Declassification Center within the National Archives.
William Cira, the acting director of ISOO, gives Federal News Radio the details on its latest report to the President.
Agencies must evaluate their security systems to ensure classified information remains secret. OMB, with guidance from ISOO and ODNI, has a battery of questions for agency heads in their second memo after the release of documents on WikiLeaks.
NARA's new report to the President finds that fewer individuals are receiving classification authority. The document also says a majority of the information that is classified likely will stay secret for 10 years or less.
