Abstract:

This report centers on the need for new policies for classifying information, new processes for declassifying information, and the imperative for using and integrating technology into these processes. Policymakers have the opportunity to transform the classification and declassification system. Their actions will improve security, increase democratic discourse, and conserve valuable resources. To make classification and declassification functional for the future, respected by users, and trusted by the public, longstanding policy and practice must change. To meet contemporary challenges, the Government needs a fresh approach. Abandoning outdated attitudes and embracing a new vision will transform the Government's ability to manage secrecy, accomplish the national security mission, and appropriately inform the public.
