Security Division

​HHS/ASPR/ICC Office of Security, Intelligence, and Information Management 

The Security Division is responsible for providing all facets of personnel security, physical security, and operational security for ASPR and each of its Offices and Divisions.  

The Security Division manages all national security clearance functions and all personnel on-boarding security functions for ASPR, including full-time ederal staff as well as intermittent personnel assigned to the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS).  In addition, the Security Division designs and implements security countermeasures to protect personnel, facilities, and medical countermeasure products in support of the Biomedical Advanced Research Development Authority (BARDA) and the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), located at multiple sites across the United States.  

Protection of the nation’s strategic medical resources is vital to ensuring that HHS and ASPR stand ready to support the nation when called upon to do so in times of national disasters and emergencies; therefore, assessing, identifying, and mitigating critical security issues is vital in the execution of the ASPR mission to save lives and protect Americans from 21st century health security threats.
