Classification Management

Classification Management is the marking, safeguarding, identification, declassification, and destruction of classified national security information (NSI) and determines the life-cycle of such information. InfoSec Program staff provide guidance to Department of Commerce operating units and security specialists on classification management and facilitate Subject Matter Expert reviews of NSI as part of the Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR) process, which sometimes occurs as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
