DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY INFORMATION SECURITY PROGRAM
|Publication Date:||29 September 2000|
This regulation applies to all military and civilian members of the Active Army, Army National Guard of the United States (ARNGUS), and U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) and Department of the Army (DA) personnel. During mobilization, chapters and policies contained in this regulation may be modified by the proponent.
This regulation establishes the policy for the classification, downgrading, declassification, transmission, transportation, and safeguarding of information requiring protection in the interests of national security. It primarily pertains to classified national security information, now known as classified information, but also addresses controlled unclassified information, to include for official use only and sensitive but unclassified. For the purposes of this regulation, classified national security information, or classified information, is defined as information and/or material that has been determined, pursuant to EO 12958 or any predecessor order, to require protection against unauthorized disclosure and is marked to indicate its classified status when in documentary or readable form. This regulation implements Executive Order (EO) 12958 and Department of Defense Regulation 5200.1-R. This regulation contains the minimum Department of the Army (DA) standards for the protection of classified information and material. Such standards may be enhanced but never lessened at command option. This regulation also establishes the DA policy on the safeguarding of Restricted Data (RD) and Formerly Restricted Data (FRD) as specified by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. This regulation also provides guidance on the proper handling of sensitive unclassified material. A restatement and interpretation of the policy concerning the protection of controlled unclassified information is included in this regulation as chapter 5. This regulation does not establish the special, additional policy for the safeguarding of special category information to include Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) or Communications Security (COMSEC), which can be found in AR 380-28 and AR 380-40 respectively. It does address the protection of information in an automated environment (app E) and Special Access Programs (SAPs) (app I).
