Reporting Suspicious Contacts

The National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) defines suspicious contacts as:

•  Efforts by any individual, regardless of nationality, to obtain illegal or unauthorized access to classified information or to compromise a cleared employee;
•  Contacts by cleared employees with known or suspected intelligence officers from any country; or
•  Any contact which suggests a cleared employee may be the target of an attempted exploitation by the intelligence services of another country.


Report suspicious contacts to your Facility Security Officer (FSO). FSOs can report to their local DCSA Industrial Security Representative (ISR) or Counterintelligence Special Agent (CISA).
