Description
 
The Public Interest Declassification Board, a group of military veterans, former officials and academics set up to implement a 2009 transparency directive from President Obama, in November 2012 sent the president a set of 14 recommendations designed to modernize agency procedures while continuing to protect vital secrets. The groupäó»s report states that government agencies charged with protecting national security are using a declassification system that is out of date and unable to keep up with the expanding volume of government documents. It recommends: that the president appoint a White House-led Security Classification Reform Steering Committee to oversee implementation of the boardäó»s recommendations to modernize the current system of classification and declassification; that classification be simplified and rationalized by placing national security information in only two classification categories; and that the threshold for classifying in the two-tiered system be adjusted to align the level of protection with the level of harm anticipated in the event of unauthorized release. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
