SC Security Cleared Engineers

One of the benefits of going with Portsmouth Communications is that all of our engineers have SC clearance, enabling us to provide telecoms, network cabling, fibre optics and audio visual services into secure MOD and secure private sector sites.

What is Security Clearance Level: SC ?

Personnel Security vetting is carried out so that people may take certain jobs or carry out tasks that need a national security clearance. These jobs and tasks are located throughout the Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces, as well as in the private sector dealing with defence related work. In addition, a number of other government departments and organisations require Security Clearance.

The Security Check (SC) is the most widely held security clearance for posts involving long-term, frequent and uncontrolled access to secret assets and occasional and controlled access to top-secret material.

An SC level involves a BC security clearance check, plus checks against the UK criminal and security records (and if appropriate, of overseas countries) and a credit check.
