Abstract : This issue of the Bulletin is devoted entirely to the inauguration of the National Industrial Security Program (NISP) which fulfills the vision of many in both government and industry who several years ago proposed that the Executive Branch of government have a common standard for industrial security. The NISP was conceived to eliminate conflicting, redundant, and unnecessary requirements through standardization of policies and procedures, coupled with interagency reciprocity. The guiding document for this government-wide program, the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) was signed in late 1994 by the Deputy Secretary of Defense and promulgated in early 1995. Administration of the Program within DoD by the Defense Investigative Service is to support the national security strategy of the United States by working in partnership with industry to develop and maintain security systems which provide critical technology with a level of protection that is rational, threat-appropriate, and cost-effective.
