How much is found on a security clearance background check?
Eddie Taylor answers this as to the types of information found.Given the records available to an investigator, and the questions that must be answered on the forms, quite a bit of information is available. Good investigators find quite a bit, often including things the applicant doesn’t remember or realize is available.Keep in mind that lying on the application form (usually an SF-86) or during an interview is a criminal offense. Don’t try to hide things, because that can cause you problems. One of the things they are looking for is whether the applicant has something in his/her background that the applicant doesn’t want exposed — because that would an item that could be used to blackmail someone to expose classified information!If someone has some dark secret that should not be discovered, applying for a security clearance is a bad idea.
How do I get a public trust clearance?
Individuals cannot just “apply” for clearances, you have to be “sponsored” by either a company or a government agency, which certifies that you have a need to be cleared for a specific position.So, in your case if you’re considering a job that requires it, one of two things needs to happen:you interview and get the position, then the company initiates your clearance for it.The company insists that you have to have the clearance already, which would in your case preclude you from getting the job.Luckily, a public trust level is the lowest level, the easiest and fastest to obtain, and you could probably get your interim in just a few days. “Interim” clearances are pre-clearances that let you begin a job that requires a clearance prior to the entire process being officially completed.
How do I gain the public trust security clearance?
You can obtain a public trust clearance through the application of a position requiring it such federal, state, and public health positions, along with companies that contract with governmental agencies. This type of clearance will not grant you access to classified materials or matters of national security but would allow you to operate in a position as an accountant or work within the public health sector. If you are selected for such as position, the human resource staff or external agency handling your background check will inform you of exactly what is required for the clearance.
In the gun control debate, there seems to be a lot of bad data flying around. If we can't trust people to properly fill out a survey how are we going to address the issues?
It’s truly worse than you think! Read here from John Lott Jr.: Adam Lankford ‘botched’ study claiming U.S. accounts for one-third of mass shootings:A shock 2016 study argued that the U.S. accounted for nearly one-third of all mass shootings, sparking global headlines about the dangers of an American gun culture.Now another researcher says the original study “botched” the data.John R. Lott Jr., president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, crunched the numbers and said his count shows that the U.S. had less than 3 percent of the world’s mass public shootings over a 15-year period.snipMr. Lankford, who claimed to be the first to attempt a global survey, said his results suggested there was something to the American psyche that left people disaffected when they failed to achieve the American dream. He said they turn to violent outbursts with firearms.“It may thus be the lofty aspirations and broken dreams of a tiny percentage of America’s students and workers — combined with their mental health problems, distorted perceptions of victimization, delusions of grandeur, and access to firearms — that makes them more likely to commit public mass shootings than people from other cultures,” he postulated in his 2015 paper.Yet he has failed to post the data on all 292 shootings. Early academic critics said it’s easy to find data for U.S. shootings but trickier for tracking incidents in foreign countries.Mr. Lott, meanwhile, turned to data from the University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database and followed up with Nexis and web searches to try to catch cases that the database missed.He said good data exist only for recent years, so he looked from 1998 to 2012 and found 1,491 mass public shootings worldwide. Of those, only 43 — or 2.88 percent — were in the U.S. Divide that by per capita rates, and the U.S. comes in 58th, behind Finland, Peru, Russia, Norway and Thailand — though still worse than France, Mexico, Germany and the United Kingdom.snip.He Lott has released a 451-page appendix detailing each of the shootings and his thoughts on how he classified it, and he shared his data with other academics, including, he said, Mr. Lankford.So, a sensational report detailing the terrible state of US Firearms Mass killing is issued and the source data? Never released, so no possibility of a Peer Review.A follow-up, with expanded & significantly more data (to the tune of 6x the number of data points) shows the total opposite. AND ALL OF THE DATA IS PUBLISHED IN A DETAILED APPENDIX SET!
How difficult is it to obtain non-sensitive public trust security clearances? How long does it take in most cases?
When I started in my current job, we were looking at about three months for a non-sensitive clearance. Now it can be up to a year. The backlog for inter-agency name-checks is staggering. This, I’m told, is the primary reason for the backlog.
How do I reinstate a DoD, top secret/bi-security clearance for use in the civilian sector, or obtain a public trust security clearance?
a2a: I’m not sure I understand your question. A DoD clearance is for the specific purpose of accessing DoD specific information that’s deemed to be sensitive or critical to national security so as to require you to have a clearance to see it.If you’re in the civilian sector, not working on DoD stuff … then you have no need for a DoD clearance. Now, if you’re working for a private firm but on contract to DoD … then there’s no real difference in the clearance that you get or its need/use: its about the information you’ve been asked to work with, not the employer on your paychecks.Private sector companies may ask you to undergo a background check .. but i’m not really aware of a private sector non-government related “clearance” process to go through so that you can handle non military/non government information.Public trust is just a lower level clearance for government work … but it can only be granted for the purposes of a job with the government that requires it. You can’t just “get a clearance” and stick it in your pocket for later, you have to be cleared for a specific job that requires it.
