P.1 Purpose

a. Per Title 51, section 20132, this NASA Procedural Requirement (NPR) establishes Agency protective services implementation requirements set forth in NASA Policy Directive (NPD) 1600.2, NASA Security Policy, as amended.

b. This NPR prescribes NASA protective services procedural requirements for NASA Centers and Component Facilities in executing the NASA security program to protect people, property, operations, and Classified National Security Information (CNSI). It establishes program specifications necessary to achieve uniformity, standardization, centralization, and decision-making authority where appropriate. Policy and procedural requirements for the protection of CNSI is further promulgated in NASA NPR 1600.2, NASA Classified National Security Information.

c. Protection and handling requirements for NASA sensitive unclassified information as of the date of this revision are provided for within the Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) policy and procedures, NASA Interim Directive (NID) 1600.55, Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) Information. This policy is scheduled to change in FY 2013 as NASA executes Executive Order 13556, November 4, 2010, Implement Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). This Executive Order mandates the implementation of a Government-wide program which, when fully implemented, will replace SBU policy and procedures in their entirety. No use of the designation CUI is authorized at this time or until official notification is made by the Office of the Chief Information Officer.

d. NPR 1382.1, NASA Privacy Procedural Requirements, sets forth the requirements for protecting of the privacy of personal information, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
