NISPOM Closed Area
These types of facilities fall under the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM). The construction requirements can vary, depending on the intended use of the facility. Acoustic measures may be required in physical security requirements. There may be high-security hardware and other access control measures installed. These types of facilities typically require less work than SCIF or SAPF to construct, but there are variables involved that can impact cost and feasibility. Is it always best to have an expert evaluate the site and project prior to developing conceptual budgets and timelines.
Restricted Area/Open Storage
In today's world, there is a need for security even without the presence of classified information. Corporate proprietary information, trade secrets and information can be targeted. Adding security measures as simple as doorways and locking hardware — or more complex items such as electronic access control systems and intrusion detection systems — are different ways to limit and control access to sensitive information. Adding security measures to improve the control of restricted or sensitive information will typically involve several types of trades and professional. A key to successfully implementing these types of measures efficiently and without wasted costs is to consult with a security professional that understands all of the elements of your project.
A SCIF is a U.S. government–accredited facility where Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) can be stored, discussed or electronically processed. Primarily government and government-related contractors that require high security have the need for SCIFs.
There are other spaces also used to process, store and discuss classified information such as Special Access Program Facilities (SAPF) and Open Storage Areas, formally known as Closed Areas (NISPOM).
There can be a number of factors that drive the need for Radio Frequency (RF) shielded or Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) shielded enclosures. Security concerns about TEMPEST emanations, the need for isolated test environments, or EMP shielding on mission-critical systems and equipment can be requirements that drive the need for these facilities. Along with a high level of technical design, these facilities will often require specialized testing to ensure that they perform properly prior to installing/operating programs within the facility's perimeter. Shielded facilities should always be designed and installed by qualified experienced professionals.
