6 Great Reasons to Mark Classified Information

Classification markings are applied to the top and bottom, front and back of classified items. Markings are also found in internal pages, paragraphs and other locations inside documents, books, manuals and other paper based products.

Here are the top reasons for marking classified information:

  1. Warn and inform a user that an item is indeed classified or sensitive
  2. Conveys what exactly needs protection
  3.  Identifies levels of classification or sensitivity
  4. Provides vital information and instruction on when to downgrade or declassify the material
  5. Gives sources and reason for classifying the item
  6. Warns of special access, control, dissemination or safeguarding requirements
