I've recently received many emails from people who are curious about security clearances and working for foreign owned companies. Though the volume of those questions have increased, I guess the topic is no longer surprising in content as it could have been many years ago.
- Am I allowed to work for a foreign company if I have a security clearance?
- Will I be able to get a security clearance if I work for a foreign company?
- You are currently employed by a cleared defense contractor and have a security clearance and want to quit and work for a foreign owned company, and would one day like to return to working with a clearance. This scenario is very risky as you could lose out on future employment, but can be mitigated.
- You do not have a security clearance, but may one day like to work on classified contracts in some capacity. However you want to apply to work for a foreign owned company. This scenario is less risky because you have nothing to lose other than the possibility of getting a clearance "one day".
