Welcome to the Office of Research Security web page.
On this site you will find information on Security, Travel, the Laptop Loan program and CI issues. (CI is the dark side of security, its concern is with those trying to steal your information or work by any means possible.)
Because Mississippi State University is a cleared defense contractor or CDC, we must adhere and implement the rules and regulations contained in the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual or NISPOM. The National Industrial Security Program governs all commercial firms, universities and colleges that perform work on classified contracts for the U.S. Government.
Our goal is to assist you with any security requirements that may be part of your contract or research. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
