USIB Security Committee i.n rr+.. r rri ire rarr 25X1 C (a) USIB Polk Establish in UnLform: Secure Processing Procedures for Forefizr iaisson Personnel In April 1965, the Board directed that the Security Committee consider the problems raised by the differing 25X1 C security procedures used by member agencies in dealing eign 'unison personnel. After re- ach member's internal procedures, a uniform pro- cedure for security processing such foreign personnel was agreed upon by the Committee and received USIB approval on 20 September 1966. (b) Uniform Personnel Secure Standards and Practices Governing Access to Sensitive Coin rtmeuted Information 25X1A One of the recommendations made by PFIAB in its analysis of the-case was the establishment of uniform security criteria for all, personnel having access to sensitive information. A draft of the standards prepared by the Security Committee and coordinated with the SIGINT and COMOR Committees was approved by USIB and issued as DCID 1/14 on 23 June 1967. This represented a major break- through for the Security Committee' a efforts to standardize personnel security criteria and should serve as a springboard for similar uniform practices in other areas of security concern. Review of Courier and Pouch in Procedures for Sensitive Integence I orrnation As a result of several incidents in the Armed Forces Courier Service (ARFCOS) which exposed highly classified Approved For Release 2000/08/17 : CIA-RDP78 J04007A001200140005-9 Excl Approved For Release 2000/( 1?7a r 04007001200140005-9 25X1A material to possible compromise, and accelerated by the revelations of the - case, the Joint Chiefs of Staff authorized a detailed survey of ARFCOS. The security recommendations of that survey, which were concurred in by the Security Committee, raised serious questions about the suitability of ARFCOS as a channel for sensitive intel- ligence. Both the SIGINT and Security Committees have been kept advised periodically by ARFCOS officials of their implementation of the JCS approved recommendations, and a joint Security and SIGINT Committee paper will be forwarded to the USIB on this subject. A Study of Provocations and Harassments A ainsst Attaches and Other U. S. Of tcialss in Soy Bloc Areas 25X1A2g For some time the Security Committee received from its members reports of harassments and provocations directed against military attaches, U. S. civilian employees and private citizens in the Soviet Bloc. After a detailed analysis, a study of this problem was approved by the Committee and forwarded to USIB for approval of its dissemination to the intelligence community for use as a briefing aid for all travelers to denied areas. The Office of Security participated in the exercise by ewing and updating OS relocation plans (including person- 25X1A6a nel rosters), the OS Emergency Team and all emer enc 25X1A6a credentials. The pertinent Vital Records at the were reviewed and steps were taken to update such records. 3.

PHYSICAL SECURITY a. Security Support of Overseas Installations rlr.rr? rrl.rl s w 25X1A13d emphasis continued to be placed on providing additional and improved protection of classified material by means of modern safekeeping equipment, alarm systems, secure areas or vaults, adequate destruction capability and all aspects of proper handling of classified material. Near East Crisis Security support during the Near East crisis was provided to NE and AT Divisions regarding existing physical security safeguards and destruction capabilities at stations and bases in the critical area. A program was established to interview returning evacuees from the crisis area to identify all security problems encountered during the emergency period. At the present time, data is being compiled with regard to the present status of equipment, the volume of classified material on hand and the estimated destruction time, in order to determine the current security posture of stations affected and to enable Head- quarters to reconstitute classified material and destruction equipment at each post. Stations which were completely evacuated and those which became susceptible to physical and technical penetration due to reduced personnel and/or physical damage are being thoroughly inspected by Headquarters security personnel. .
