Access to personal information is restricted to those who require the records in the performance of their official duties and who are properly screened and cleared for need-to-know. Access to computer records is further restricted by the use of passwords, which are changed periodically. Logs are kept and reviewed for valid access. All personnel whose official duties require access to the information are trained in the proper safeguarding and use of the information and receive annual Information Assurance and Privacy Act training. Paper records are marked “FOUO-PRIVACY ACT PROTECTED DATA” and stored in a locked container when not in use.

Retention and disposal:

Electronic images are deleted when the user account is deleted from the system. Paper copies are filed in the security office and destroyed by shredding and/or burning on supersession or obsolescence of the authorization document or on transfer, separation, or relief of the individual concerned.
