ISOO Continues Operations and Outreach during COVID-19 National Emergency

During the current public health national emergency, the Information Security Oversight Office remains ‘virtually’ open.  All ISOO staff are teleworking and continuing operations by telework.  They are available to respond to questions and provide guidance.  However, as all staff are teleworking and do not have access to SIPRNet or JWICS, communications received over those classified systems will be accessed infrequently.  You may contact ISOO by Email:

  • For general inquiries: isoo@nara.gov  ISOO staff will check this account twice daily
  • For CUI questions: cui@nara.gov   CUI staff will check this account twice daily
  • For ISCAP questions: iscap@nara.gov ISCAP staff will check this account once per day
  • For questions to specific staff members, please use this link:

Generally, staff will respond to your email within 24 hours.

To expand and develop our mission, ISOO is launching this blog as new forum for engaging with the public, with all ISOO stakeholders across the Federal Government, with industry, state, local, tribal, and private-sector partners, Interagency Security Classification Appeals Panel (ISCAP) appellants, and the broad community of interest in information security. Continuing through and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, the blog will include posts from all three components of the ISOO staff: Classification Management, Operations, and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), and we hope that you will join the discussions taking place with each post.

As we keep the lines of communication open, and continue the essential functions of our office, we look forward to continuously expanding conversations with all stakeholders to improve education, awareness, and transparency of information security policies and practices, including how the Federal Government manages, protects, classifies, declassifies, shares and releases its vastly increasing information assets.

From now and beyond the current public health national emergency, The ISOO Overview Blog will post information at least once a week, including notifications of relevant events, ISOO policy, guidance, and activities; and ISOO reports and perspectives on ISOO’s lines of business and matters related to ISOO’s roles and authorities.

Be well and remain engaged.
