The government relies upon experienced attorney’s and security clearance experts – and so should you. With more than 25 years of military, national security and legal experience, let Long Law Firm help you navigate these complex legal processes and requirements.
The security clearance application process, as well as the renewal process, includes an extensive and thorough background investigation into your personal life and financial history. Anything from traffic offenses, credit card debt and foreign connections can be called into question.
Further, just because you have been granted a clearance does not guarantee you will be granted another one later or be able to maintain it for the remainder of your career. A security clearance can be taken away at any time due to numerous factors that call into question your ability to work in a sensitive position or have access to classified information. The government conducts “Continuous Evaluations (CE)” on military personnel, federal employees and contractors who hold a security clearance. This means they can constantly monitor information about your life; and now, the government can also collect information from your social media and consider it for security clearance determinations.
In today’s ever-advancing technological age, large and small businesses must be vigilant to protect their sensitive and proprietary information. Developing information security plans and policies to detect, deter and mitigate any unauthorized access to your systems and information is a key security component of any successful business.
Long Law Firm can advise you on developing information security, insider threat, cybersecurity and counterintelligence policies. Security is an ever-evolving dynamic to protect networks, systems, programs, facilities, and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. Enhancing the security of your critical infrastructure will help reduce risk, increase detection and mitigate a known or suspected cybersecurity threat or security vulnerability.
Additionally, businesses that are the victims of cyber incidents (whether denials of service, ransomware, thefts of property or information, espionage, or other malicious acts) must determine when and how to report and/or cooperate with government agencies. Let our experience working with law enforcement, homeland security and intelligence agencies protect your rights and advise your company on engagement and interaction with these government agencies.
