We take pride in our security clearance defense work in the Space Coast and security clearance defense work throughout the state of Florida and across the US.


We help advise on the three basic types of security clearances:



  • Foreign employment, immediate relatives and marriages and other personal relationships are screened with scrutiny during the application process.

  • Reinvestigated every 15 years.



  • Requires a National Agency Check, a Local Agency Check and a Credit investigation. Bankruptcy and unpaid bills as well as criminal charges may disqualify an applicant. Poor financial history is the number-one cause of rejection, and foreign activities and criminal record are also common causes for disqualification

  • Reinvestigated every 10 years


Top Secret: Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) & Special Access Program (SAP)

  • Extensive application process and background check known as a Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI). Investigators scrutinize dependents, friends, relatives and any foreign travel or employment. Foreign travel and financial assets investigated deeply. Character references required.

  • Reinvestigated every 5 years.
