The process of acquiring a security clearance for federal employees and federal contractors is often cited as a barrier to effective recruitment, hiring, and retention. This webinar will identify when a security clearance is necessary for cybersecurity work and when agencies can proceed without requiring a clearance. The speakers will highlight government policy as well as effective practices and solutions of federal government agencies for creating processes to ensure that security clearances, when required, can be obtained in a timely and efficient manner for federal employees and contractors.
