The most recent SEAD-4 describes 13 Adjudicative guidelines as well as the number of disqualifying and mitigating criteria for each. The topics covered by these guidelines range from allegiance to the United States to foreign preference and influence, and from psychological conditions to use of information technology.
Fresh Haystack adjudication workbook and process follows a comprehensive, “whole-person” concept that involves a careful weighting of risk factors in someone’s life when determining if a person is a trustworthy and is an acceptable security risk. Our approach allows for Rapid Vetting, defined and measurable adjudication model of person’s risk based on the data collected for all risk variables involved.
AI RIDE (Risk Integration & Decision Engine) integrates all available data sources and based on the rules compromised of these risk variables – and their weights – calculates risk score, highlights anomalies, and allows risk rulesets changes on the fly. This risk criteria and weights that define adjudication criteria and trustworthiness have never been a constant over time and will continue to evolve with Trusted Workforce 2.0 (TW2.0) initiative. Lastly, out-of-the-box we can support the policy changes and advancement of the personnel security standards.
