These facilities are top of the line and will help you manage your security issues without a problem. If you would like to learn more about these facilities, what they are, how they benefit you, and how you can install them, keep reading.

The Basics: Understanding the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF)

First and foremost, it's crucial to understand exactly what a SCIF is and how it can help you. These temporary facilities are used by government agencies to ensure all information is secure during meetings. They are fortified with heavy duty floors, walls, and ceilings, in addition to security windows, noise proofing, high-tech information technology, and more. These buildings are also typically nondescript in order to not raise any sort of suspicion about what is going on inside. While these buildings are generally used by the government, they are becoming increasingly popular in the private sector. You can use these in your travels or for incredibly sensitive meetings that you do not want to get out to the public.

Find a Company That Can Install a SCIF

There are a lot of variables that come with building a SCIF, so definitely do your research and speak to professionals. You will need to arrange pre-construction documentation and also get a government agent to sponsor its construction. This way, you will know that you are building these facilities for the proper specifications. Work with a professional to design it to your liking. When you speak to a few different contractors, you'll get the lay of the land when it comes to getting what you need out of this work.

Budget and Plan

Finally, get your finances in order to pay for this SCIF. It can cost $50 per square foot and up, so get as many cost estimates as you possibly can. Always do your research on every piece of technology that is needed so that nothing is left out of your cost estimates.

Utilize these tips and you get the most out of your secure facilities.

About Me

For years, I realized that there were some issues with our home security. It seemed like whenever I left the house, things weren't quite right when I got back. I wanted to make sense of things, so I began going through and trying to figure out what was going on with our security. I talked with a team of professional security contractors, and they had some great ideas for fixing things up. After we installed a camera system fitted with a motion sensor, we were able to catch the problem--a sleep walking spouse. This blog is all about bolstering home security, even if you don't currently suspect foul play.
